    Default Dr. IV placement

    I have Dr.'s in the ER that place the IV. Is there a CPT for this?or is it just part of the E&M? Thanks in advance for your help.

  2. Default
    Its part of the IV fluid code.

  3. Default DR Intraosseous
    What about the ER doctors putting in the IO needles, Intraosseous (in the bone) for emergency fluids and resuscitations?
    And what if it is physician guided and the nurse puts it in?
    thanks

    The placement is a part of the hydration/therapy code. See your CPT book for the clarification.
