Medcal Billing an Coding

I am stuck on this one coding scenario I'm hoping you can help me. I have gotten CPT code 90947 or 90945 but I am unsure which is the right one? I need a CPT code for an inpatient hospital scenario, Dialysis Progress Note. The patient was seen during CAPD while using 1.5% 2-liter fill volumes. She's on IV fluids, appears dry, only slight edema, some pain and tenderness on examination, but otherwise is eating better and feeling much better. Her cultures so far are negative. The patient is on vancomycin and gentamicin for peritonitis, which she'll continue to get through her pharmacy. Her current hospital dialysis prescription will continue and she'll remain in the hospital a few more days. Patient agrees with this plan. (I've been trying hard to code this online-study exam question myself but I'm just not sure. Are either of the two codes I mentioned correct? If not, where should I be looking?) Thank you for your help!
