    Post Sufficient OLV documentation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is "fiberoptic intubation" sufficient documentation that the patient was on a one lung vent?

    No, it does not. If the notes said that a double lumen with the size above 35. It is a better indication that the patient had undergone OLV.

    We go by "OLV" or "(left or right) lung down."
