If there is no invasive procedure associated with the event, but anesthesia was administered for a non-invasive procedure and the event involved the administration of anesthesia, enter the code for the non-invasive procedure.

If the event involved the administration of anesthesia and no other procedure, enter the procedure code for the administration of anesthesia.
