Hello everyone. I am working on the billing for a new LIS and I would like to know what others are doing. Do you charge CPT 36430 for all transfusions (adult and neonate) or do you use CPT 36430 for non-neonatal transfusions and CPT 36440/CPT 36450 for neonatal transfusions? 36430 – Transfusion, blood or blood components 36440 – Push transfusion, blood 2 years and under 36450 – Exchange transfusion, blood, newborn
I am looking for the answer to this question posed by one of our physicians. Can FFP and RBC's be administered through the same line at the same time in a trauma situation? This has never been the practice where I have worked however when I checked for standards that might apply I could only find AABB 5.28.9 Addition of Drugs and Solutions which really did not seem to answer the question. Looking for any input with regard to this question and making the assumption the FFP and the RBC's would have to be compatible.
