I have Dr.'s in the ER that place the IV. Is there a CPT for this?or is it just part of the E&M?:confused: Thanks in advance for your help.

DR Intraosseous

What about the ER doctors putting in the IO needles, Intraosseous (in the bone) for emergency fluids and resuscitations?
And what if it is physician guided and the nurse puts it in?
thanks

The placement is a part of the hydration/therapy code. See your CPT book for the clarification.
