    Exclamation Anesthesia for echocadiography

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello Everyone

    I need to crossover 93303, 93320, or 93325 into anethesia codes. If only the crossed over! The echos that are being done are on small children who will not sit still enough to have heart mumurs measured. I'm leaning in the direction of 01922-26(being done by tech) but just thought I'd get some ideas before I send out my sample claim.

    Thanks for you help!!

    Are you using intubated anesthesia or drug induced moderate sedation? If it is the latter, try codes 99143 - 99145.
