This webinar for sleep lab clinicians explains why continuously monitoring CO2 to assess ventilation is important to achieve the best results from sleep studies. The presenter will explain how respiratory diseases impact the ventilation and perfusion status of patients commonly seen in the sleep lab and how, depending on the method of CO2 measurement, the quality of information can be affected.
After this presentation, participants should be able to:
Discuss the importance of CO2 monitoring during overnight sleep studies.
Identify the three reasons why SpO2 monitoring alone is not sufficient for overnight monitoring.
Name the advantages and disadvantages of the three different CO2 monitoring methods in the sleep lab.
