Noninvasive CO2 Monitoring in Sleep Diagnostics: Methods, Limitations and Benefits
BS, RRT-NPS, Clinical Application Specialist
Continuously monitoring CO2 as an indicator of ventilation is important to achieve the best results from everyday sleep studies – and understanding why is essential for sleep lab clinicians.
This presentation explains how respiratory diseases impact the ventilation and perfusion status of common sleep study participants, and how, depending on the method of CO2 measurement, the quality of information regarding a patient’s ventilatory status can be affected.
After this presentation, participants should be able to:
- The importance of monitoring CO2 in addition to SpO2
- The advantages and drawbacks of common methods of CO2 monitoring
The most accurate and effective methods of monitoring ventilation in common sleep lab scenarios
