Thread: Nasotracheal intubation

    Default Nasotracheal intubation

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for the cpt code for this procedure. The only intubation code I can find is 31500 endo. Do you use the same code for Nasotracheal?

    Yes, I use 31500. "endotracheal" means thru the trachea. Nasotracheal intubation meets the CPT definition.
