Abstract:

Conscious sedation is commonly used for provision of analgesia and anxiolysis during minor medical and surgical procedures. Drug induced respiratory depression is the most prominent sedation related side effect observed. Administration of supplemental oxygen results in a delayed detection of apnea or hypoventilation when only oxygen saturation (SPO2) is monitored, as is common in gastroenterology procedures. Continuous CO2 monitoring might therefore improve patient care. Steady state precision of a new transcutaneous partial CO2 pressure (PtcCO2) sensor has been shown. We investigated the still unknown dynamic properties of this sensor.
