Noninvasive CO2 Monitoring in Sleep Diagnostics: Methods, Limitations, and Benefits

Margie White, BS, RRT-NPS

Clinical Application Specialist


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.

This webinar covered topics including:
  • 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:

    • Titrating support during “split night” studies
    • Monitoring patients with ventilation perfusion mismatch
  • 1 contact hour Continuing Respiratory Care Education (CRCE) credit by the American Association for Respiratory Care. Course #185591000
  • 1 CEC by the American Association of Sleep Technologists, AAST CEC Program Number A31359
