    What service did he provide in the OR though? It does seem to be extreem to do a cast change under anesthesia unless the patient perhaps was mentally challenged and combative? Did the fracture require a manipulation?

  2. Question Air Cast Splint ????
    Need imput for coding an "air cast splint for minupulation" --applied by ortho physician in the office. What CPT codes would be correct or should this be coded at all? Thanks
