    Default Arterial catheter

    What code do you use for insertion of a femoral arterial catheter?

  2. #2

    Red face Arterial catheter

    This will depend on why the catheter is being placed and what it is being used for. You should look in the section with 36620 and 36140. Hope this points you in the right direction!
