Item 13842

This item provides for intra-arterial cannulation (including ultrasound guidance) for either or both intra-arterial pressure monitoring or blood sampling.

If a service covered by item 13842 is provided outside of an ICU, in association with, for example, an anaesthetic, benefits are payable under item 13842 in addition to item 13870 and 13873 when performed on the same day.

Where this occurs, accounts should be endorsed "performed outside of an Intensive Care Unit" against item 13842.

In such cases the appropriate anaesthetic item/s should be utilised.
