Good Morning L'ers,
We are currently building the ORM module and have run into a dilemma when it comes to Anesthetic Types dictionary. First, you can only select 1 type of anesthesia, when many times multiple types of anesthesia are used during a case, but our second problem is with blocks. Our OR director states we should not build our blocks as an anesthetic type as it is billed and charged much differently therefore needs to be somewhere other than under Anesthetic Type because it is not anesthesia. How have other sites built there blocks? Could you please advise?
Thank you,

We built our anesthesia types together as options that use more than one type if that makes sense for example:
We also built our blocks in the invasive procedure dictionary (not as an anesthesia type): Femoral nerve block, etc. if this is what you mean?

Hi Jill,
We build combo anesthetic types: GEN/AXILLA (General/Axillary Block), GEN/FEMBLK (General/Femoral Block), etc.
We also build our blocks as invasive procedures.
Maybe that's overkill, but it's worked for us for more than 10 years. Please feel free to let me know if you might have any additional questions.
