Weaning from Vent after surgery
Our pulmonology/critical care team is generally in charge of vent weaning after surgeries. After MUCH education, they have finally stopped documenting acute respiratory failure for all of these standard weaning patients, BUT they are looking for a code to capture the work they do in weaning the patient from the vent. What do you all use for this? Is there a specific code for weaning from the vent that would be appropriate for them to use?
Any help or advice is appreciated!
