Respiratory Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

Can 94662 be reported in an acute situation?

Answer:

Negative-pressure ventilation is usually not employed in the acute situation, but rather is used as a means of intermittent support for chronic lung failure. Services are billed per day, not per hour, for CNP.
