Thread: Dx for checking heart after pacemaker

    Cool Dx for checking heart after pacemaker

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had a pacemaker implanted last summer. Patient comes in to our doc who is not a cardiologist. Our doc makes sure that the pacemaker is beating regularly. He obviously cannot do a "device check". The Cardiologist will do that. But what DX code do you use when a your doc just makes sure that the pacemakerd is giving a steady beat?
