Today Ms Digby spoke to the “Insider’s” about injections and infusions. During Episode 151, Ms Digby replied to Scarlett’s query about ultrasound guided IV access. Then she answers a concern about a specific issue addressed by the physician during a scheduled preventative visit; are both the preventative visit and the level 3 E&M reported? Finally, when the physician states, “tight nuchal cord” does that indicate a newborn affected by other compression of umbilical cord P02.5?

Congratulations Scarlet for winning today’s “mugging”! We appreciate your support! Coffee with the Coder(R) loves your questions.  To watch episode 151, click this smiling mugshot of Denise. (Just so you know, the captions are not yet validated.)
