    I have a question on the ekg status post cardioversion. What dx code should we use for the ekg?

    I would use the dx for the reason the cardioversion was done. This makes the most sense because the post-procedure ekg is basically a follow-up to make sure the original problem was corrected with the procedure. Hope this helps!
