    Medical Coding Books
    If a Dr is writing intra op BP managment on the fee ticket does that mean hes asking for 99135-anesthesia complicated by utilization of controlled hypotension???

    Default 99135
    No, the controlled hypotension is when the anesthesiologist has to lower the blood pressure during a (example) heart procedure so the surgeon can do a portion of the procedure. Sounds like what the doc is doing is managing a wacky BP. You should ask him though to clarify if you can.
