    Question How to code Hemodynamic monitoring

    AAPC: Back to School
    I code for a Pulmonologist. He is a new provider. He has given me the dx: hemodynamic monitoring for Placement of arterial line. The second dx for the procedure is hypotensive. I can not find a code for Hemodynamic monitoring. Please help.

    Default Hemodynamic monitoring

    I don't know for sure, but this sounds more like a procedure than an actual diagnosis. In my opinion, the diagnosis should come from the reason for the monitoring in order to place an arterial line. Maybe someone else has an answer for you. Good luck!
