I code EEg/EKG. My question is this?

If the impression states "Abnormal EKG", would I code abnromal AND the symptoms ??

I know in the coding world, if there is a definitive dx you do NOT code the symptoms,
but in this case Im not quite sure, I recvd several different answers here in my office.

Thanks everyone!!

Abnormal EKG with Dx

If the EKG comes back with 1st degree AV block; sinus bradycardia; septal infarct, age undetermined; and Abnormal ECG, would you code the abnormal EKG (794.31) with the rest?
