HBOT post revascularization
So Im having a hard time with the "rules" for using diagnosis code 440.23. If my patient goes for revascularization to help an arterial wound, how soon after the proceedure should he start HBO? AND, does his wound still need to be ischemic after the proceedure in order to qualify for HBO? Im getting mixed responses. Some say start HBO as soon as possible after revscularization and some say the wound must still be getting worse and ischemic after the revascularization in order for HBO to be an option.
