If a nursing home patient comes into the ED with CPR in progress and the code is continued. An amp of Epi, one of Bicarb and Lidocaine are given. Ventilations are continued and the monitor is attached to the patient along with the rest of the vital signs recorded. Just the chest compression(s) are not completed. My 'assumption' is that there was a clinical reason for this age related osteoporosis or other structural/positional issues making compression difficult/impossible.

Is it appropriate to report 92950 with the modifier 52 in place to show the 20 mins spent for the code/meds given?
