    Pt seen and data reviewed on combined CVS/ICU/Card rounds. Telemetry reviewed? Pt is a 6 mo old with DORV/VSD/PS s/p repair who also has adrenal insufficiency/CAH. His course has been complicated by atrial tachycardia and a wide complex tachycardia that converted to VF with DC Cardioversion. He was initally treated w/ an amiodarone gtt, but was transitioned to propranolol on Monday. His telemetry shows NSR w/ occasioinal PVC's. HR is appropriate, recommend continue propranolol at current dose.

    I would agree, yes, 99231.

    There's not enough history here to give credit, a one-system exam (CV), and straightforward MDM (review 1 test, med mgmt, 1 established problem-stable).
