This article focuses on a study that shows supplemental oxygen during the recovery period following endoscopy reduces desaturation. British Society of Gastroenterology guidelines recommend that at risk patients be given oxygen enriched air while undergoing endoscopic procedures, but not in the recovery period. While supplemental oxygen has become standard practice in researchers' unit for all patients having sedation, researchers identified that this was not the case in the recovery area and one to one nursing care was also no longer available.
