    Are you going to be coding for an Anesthesiologist? AAPC has a Anesthesia study guide but it's for people who understand the general concept. If you don't know how to code it at all, look for a basic CPT coding book that will teach you the general concepts. It's not that difficult but there are things that you have to know like the time formula, physical status modifiers, qualifying circumstances, ect. Search Amazon...I'm sure there's something you can find. Sorry I can't give you a specific book. Hope this helps.

    Default Anesthesia/Pain Mgmt Education

    Check this out:


    They also have one for anesthesia. The anesthesia one is offered semi-annually, though I am not sure if the pain mgmt one is as well. If you can't find it on their site if its offered in the spring, and can't make it to the one in October, give them a call.

    Members of our staff and management attend the anesthesia seminar each year, and feedback has been excellent!
