Study Shows Advantages of Minute Ventilation Over End-Tidal CO2 In Patients Undergoing Procedural Sedation

Waltham, MA (May 6, 2016) Respiratory Motion, Inc. An independent study by the University of Vermont College of Medicine—being presented this week at the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia conference in Orlando, FL—indicates that, “Minute Ventilation (MV) monitoring provides superior information versus capnography (EtCO2) in monitoring non-intubated patients forduring procedural sedation.”

 The study, “Respiratory Volume Monitoring Could Improve Safety in Procedural Sedation,” concluded that the use of Respiratory Volume Monitoring (RVM), as a direct measure of adequacy of ventilation, may substantially reduce the amount of time a patient is in “unsafe” MV status, during an endoscopic procedure, by between 45% to 65%.
