    Question 2008 Coding Edge

    AAPC: Back to School
    Ok So I got my new Coding Edge magazine in the mail for January 2008. I always do the questions at the end, because they are easy CEUs. I am stuck on question number 2) Name three CPT examples of vital organ system failure.
    Can anyone tell me what article to look under in the JAn 2008 issue to find the answer? Why am I overlooking this answer? When I read through the magazine I don't even remember it talking about this question.

    Any help would be wonderful.

    I looked as well, and no luck on my end either. I had someone here at work look as well, and she couldn't find it either! Did you notice the blank space on top of page 22? Maybe it was suppose to be there.......

    I have read this magazine from front to back as well and have no idea where to come up with the answer either.

    I think the answer is in the critical care services description in the CPT book. The first paragraph lists different organ system failures like: circulatory failure, shock and central nervous system failure. Hope this helps.
