Studies Show Inadequate Monitoring of Patient Respiratory Status by Capnography and Pulse Oximetry

Waltham, Mass. (March 2015) – Research being presented at the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) Annual Meeting this month finds that pulse oximetry and capnography commonly used in hospitals do not reliably protect patients and can trigger false alarms.  
The studies, to be presented at the IARS meeting in Honolulu in March, all demonstrate the weakness of commonly used respiratory monitoring technologies and suggest they may not protect patients from serious respiratory risks.
