I need help. The only code that I have been able to locate for endotracheal intubation is the Emergency code 31500. Under 31610 is stated for endotracheal to use 31500. The case was not an emergency. It was done in order to conserve the airway while other procedures such as a direct laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy and esophagoscopy were performed. Does anyone know if 31500 would still be the proper code even though it was not an emergency?
