CoVa Monitoring System 2: CPT and ICD-10 Codes

Electrical Bioimpedance Indications CPT Code 93701
Cardiac output determined by electrical bioimpedance, also known as Thoracic Electrical Bioimpedance (TEB), is based upon the resistive changes in the thorax to an applied current. A special monitor is designed to measure impedance during the cardiac cycle after the introduction of a high-frequency, low-amplitude current using surface electrodes placed at the base of the neck and the lower chest.Since impedance changes are related to the flow of blood, both stroke volume and cardiac output can be derived. Related hemodynamic parameters such as cardiac index, index of contractility, acceleration index, thoracic fluid content and systemic vascular resistance can also be subsequently estimated.
