Study Shows Minute Ventilation Preferred Over End-Tidal CO2 In Monitoring For Life-Threatening Opioid Induced Respiratory Changes

Waltham, MA (April 28, 2016) Respiratory Motion, Inc. – Research presented at The Deutsche Anesthesia Congress (DAC) Shows Minute Ventilation Monitoring may be preferable to indirect measurement using EtCO2, for non-intubated patients.  

The study “Evaluation of the Relationship between Non-Invasive Minute Ventilation and End-Tidal CO2 in Patients Undergoing General vs. Spinal Anesthesia” points to the value of Minute Ventilation, as direct measure of adequacy of ventilation, in monitoring non-intubated patients for potentially lifethreatening Opioid Induced Respiratory Depression (OIRD).
