NOTES


1.  Do not code the following devices—they are basically supplies which do not splint or immobilize the patient’s injuries:

            Buddy taping
            DAS (sling)
            Neck collars
            TED hose
            Knee sleeves
            Ace wraps
            Orthototics
            Heel pads or cups
            Boots & shoes—i.e.  Darco shoe, wedge shoe, post op shoe, hard sole shoe, cast      shoe ,  ortho shoe, pressure shoe (for ulcers)
           
2.  “Dynamic”  is a brand name, so when you see the term “Dynamic splint”, do not assume this  is dynamic as opposed to static, it is most likely the brand name.  Check to see if it is set up to move.  Even hinged devices are usually locked to provide immobilization for the current  injury.  Code to the appropriate site.
    

3.  Sometimes sling & swath is applied to immobilize another body site besides the shoulder.    Code to the appropriate site.
