    Default Oxygen dependant

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is " oxygen dependant" a diagnosis. If so, is there a code. To me its not. I would like to know if anyone agrees. Due to bronchiolitis the pt is oxygen dependant. So to me bronchiolitis should be used as diagnosis only.

    Thank you in advance
