Am I correct in thinking that we would not code separately with CPT 93503 when performed with a RHC with a PA line to stay?

Right heart catheterization was performed percutaneously via the R
internal jugular vein using ultrasound guidance for access
RA 6, RV 31/11, PA 35/12 (mean 24), PCW 11 mm Hg. There was
considerable respiratory variation in right heart atrial pressures.
Thermodilution cardiac output was 3.8 l/min at a HR of 48. He has a rest
bradycardia with minor IVCD.
The PA line was sewn in place and the patient transported to the
pulmonary lab for a CPET study.

Thanks in advance.
