    Default E-code scenarios

    AAPC: Back to School
    I know this is going to sound weird, but I need multiple E-code scenarios. We are going to play a pictionary game at our local chapter meeting and they are going to be E-codes. If you could send me some scenarios that are different and unusual or even the usual I would truly appreciate it. if they are really hard I would appreciate the correct codes too.

    thanks so much in advance.
