    Assuming it was one bag with the morphine that ran from 17:10 to 22:45, I would code the following.

    96365, 96366x5

    22:10-22:45=35min, since it ran for "more than 30min" you can add 96366 again.

    Hope this helps!

    I am sorry but I thought that 96366 was for a different drug infusion and 96367 was for the same.

    96366 is for each additional hour (not different drug) whereas the 96367 is for a sequential infusion, which means the succession, or following, of one thing or event after another .
    The 96374/75/76 is where the same and/or different drug descriptions come into play. It is all in the wording and they really love to confuse you with injections & infusions.
