Abstract:

Sedative or analgesic drugs are often used in medical interventions in spontaneously breathing patients, the potentially most dangerous side effect of those drugs is respiratory depression. Transcutaneous CO2 (tcCO2) monitoring is fast and reliable to detect the onset of respiratory depression, compared to measurement of oxygen saturation (SpO2) while administering supplemental oxygen. We compared the latest Sentec digital V-Sign2 sensor and its predecessor V-Sign and endtidal CO2 measurements in a dynamic situation. The new V-Sign2 sensor was significantly faster than the older V-sign sensor. A change rate of up to 22 mmHg/min allows for accurate CO2 monitoring even in case of fast changing respiratory conditions such as apnea.
