    Question Bp check

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a patient who came in to see the doctor as his mom took his BP the night before and said it was high. His brother was just diagnosed with hypertension and dad is on meds for it. When we saw this patient he was normotensive and our Dr believes it was a bad reading at home or an issue with the BP cuff. What dx should i use for this?? Any opinions would be helpful.

    I would go with a V71.x for a suspected condition not found.
