Don't skip a beat during electrophysiology exams

Briefings on APCs, January 1, 2008

Editor's note: This article is the second in a two-part series. Part one of this series about electrophysiology (EP) exams and coding explained the basic underlying concepts of an EP exam, such as recording and pacing during the exam, packaging codes, add-on codes, arrhythmias and antitachycardia pacing, and ICD-9 codes associated with EP studies. This month, we will explore additional and complex concepts related to EP coding of bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias.
