Coding oxygen therapy

HIM-HIPAA Insider, December 30, 2008

Q: I am new to the inpatient coding world and looking for information about when to code oxygen therapy. For example, can I code it when a patient is admitted with acute bronchitis with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder? Also, should I routinely report physical and occupational therapy codes on inpatient records?
