CPT 00144 | Anesthesia For Corneal Transplant Procedures

CPT code 00144 can be reported when an anesthesia provider performs an anesthesia service on a patient during a corneal transplant procedure on the eye.

Description

The official description of the 00144 CPT code is: “Anesthesia for procedures on the eye; corneal transplant.

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) assigned six base units to CPT 00144.

Procedure

An anesthesia provider performs a pre-operative evaluation of the patient before the corneal transplant procedure on the eye.

Then, the anesthesia provider induces the patient and monitors the patient during a corneal transplant that is provided by another surgeon.

The anesthesia provider notes any types and amounts of medications administered, all forms of monitoring used, patient responses, and the start and stop times of anesthesia care.

Following the corneal transplant procedure, the anesthesia provider oversees the patient’s transfer to post-anesthesia care.
