Hi Guest!

Typically, the diagnosis code(s) used for the anesthesia will be the condition/symptoms that the patient is receiving the surgical procedure for requiring the anesthesia. If you'd like to reply to me with some details about the patient's condition/symptoms, i'm happy to offer you some coding options.
