At both PACUs, these patients were monitored with electrocardiography and for blood pressure as well as Medtronic's Capnostream(TM) 20 patient monitor, which measured pulse oximetry, pulse rate, respiratory rate and end-tidal
carbon dioxide for the IPI.
carbon dioxide: the most vital of vital signs.
This finding in itself is good evidence for the validity of end-tidal
PCO2 as an index of the carbon dioxide stimulus.
The diagnostic devices include monitoring devices such as echocardiography (ECG or EKG), ultrasound, Doppler, pulse oximetry, end-tidal
carbon dioxide (ETCO2), capnography, noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP), and stress tests.
We investigated the effects of dexmedetomidine infusion on the end-tidal
concentration of sevoflurane required for smooth removal of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) and on the incidence of respiratory complications during postoperative recovery in paediatric patients anaesthetised with sevoflurane.
Procedures--A randomized, crossover study was used to evaluate changes in respiratory rate, tidal volume, minute ventilation, heart rate, mean arterial and indirect blood pressures, and end-tidal
The development of adaptive support ventilation (ASV) machines without the need for end-tidal
carbon dioxide or oxygen saturation in the closed loop proved the reality of the 'least work of breathing' philosophy in the optimal mechanics of ventilation of most patients.
The effectiveness of out-of-hospital use of continuous end-tidal
carbon dioxide monitoring on the rate of unrecognized misplaced intubation within a regional emergency medical services system.
Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to establish the validity and reliability of end-tidal
carbon dioxide (ETCO2) measurements as obtained by the Capnotrainer.
At each evaluation, indices of resting ventilation, including end-tidal
Designed for use in a variety of acute and critical care setting--including intensive care, progressive care, and medical-surgical units--the protocols address non- invasive cardiac, respiratory waveform, end-tidal
carbon dioxide, blood pressure, and pulse oximetry monitoring.
They monitored maternal end-tidal
carbon dioxide measurements to indirectly gauge fetal carbon dioxide levels.
