Successful device placement was concurred by the appearance of a square wave capnograph
trace and bilateral chest movements on ventilation.
During the surgery the patient monitoring included: Continuous Electrocardiogram, Heart rate, Pulse oximetry, Capnograph
and NIBP at five minutes interval.
The bird was monitored with a Doppler unit and capnograph
Some of them use auxiliary physiological measurements such as the pulse oximeter, electrocardiogram (ECG), chest band respirometer, spirometer, and capnograph
End-tidal carbon dioxide tension values were assessed from a direct read of a capnograph
(g) using the placement of the suction sensor in a similar manner to its placement during f assessment.
End-tidal carbon dioxide partial pressure (PetCO[sub]2) was measured with an in-line mainstream infrared capnograph
(CO[sub]2 SMO Plus Monitor; Respironics Inc., Murrysville, PA, USA).
The samples are collected automatically every 3 minutes, through nasal canulas and under the control of a capnograph
. Application of capnography allows us to avoid samples containing to low concentrations of C[O.sub.2].
A bedside capnograph
(Capnostream[R] 20, Oridion, USA) and a pneumotachograph (PowerLab[R] Systems 16/30, AD Instruments, New Zealand) recorded data with Lab Chart Pro software and were directly connected to the patient's endotracheal or tracheostomy tube.
This year we would really like to use the funds for more medical equipment for our helicopter and would like to purchase a capnograph
for each helicopter we have.
The treating team was blinded to the screen on the capnograph
in control group; the capnograph
was viewable by all staff in Intervention group.
