What code would I report for a pediatric pneumogram?
You would use 94772. The service in this code is frequently used to monitor newborns in the nursery or may be requested as a home service for high-risk infants with a diagnosis of apnea. The pediatric pneumogram provides a 24-hour record of ventilatory pattern, monitoring the depth and frequency of the respiration. Separate procedure codes for electromyograms, EEG, ECG, and recordings are excluded when 94772 is reported.
