Description

This two-part course will provide a review of cardiac anatomy and function and explain how to code common procedures involving the circulatory system.  This course is comprised of four lessons: anatomy and function of the heart and vascular system; structure of cardiovascular PCS codes; procedures on the heart, and great vessels and coding practice exercises.

 

Objectives:

Lesson 1: Anatomy and Function of the Heart and Vascular System

  • Label the heart valves on a heart diagram
  • Differentiate between arteries, veins, and the great vessels of the heart
  • Recognize structures contributing to the heart’s electrical conductivity

Lesson 2: Structure of Cardiovascular PCS Codes

  • Identify the section of PCS where cardiac catheterization codes are located
  • Utilize your knowledge of vascular anatomy to choose the correct body part for certain procedures
  • Match cardiovascular devices to their respective PCS device value

Lesson 3: Procedures on the Heart and Great Vessels

  • Select the body part and qualifier values for coronary bypass procedures
  • Assign codes for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty
  • Determine the number of codes needed to report pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator procedures
  • Match different types of contrast material to their corresponding PCS values

Target Audience

  • Facility Coders (inpatient/outpatient)
  • Professional Fee Coders
  • Clinical Documentation Improvement Professionals
  • Students
