ABSTRACT
The author stresses the importance of monitoring patients' respiration for preventing mortality and complications. Topics discussed include the use of pulse oximeters to detect respiratory depression and the warning issued by the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation and Joint Commission on the need to continually monitor oxygenation together with a monitor of ventilation in patients receiving oxygen. Also mentioned is the drawbacks of capnography as a gold standard for monitoring ventilation.

    Introduction The Health Survey for England reported that 25% of UK adults are obese with a 10% rise over 15 years. Consequently, clinicians are faced with a rising number of obese patients referred for bariatric and non-bariatric surgery. Previous data indicates a 50% incidence of obstructive...

    With the introduction of the stair climb test of surgical patients in the 1950s, the role of exercise-based testing as a useful diagnostic tool and an adjunct to conventional cardiopulmonary testing was established. Since then, we have witnessed a rapid development of numerous tests, varying in...

  • Assessing Inspiratory Muscle Strength for Early Detection of Respiratory Failure in Motor Neuron Disease: Should We Use MIP, SNIP, or Both? Janssens, Jean-Paul; Adler, Dan; Iancu Ferfoglia, Ruxandra; Poncet, Antoine; Genton Graf, Laurence; Leuchter, Igor; Escher Imhof, Monica; Héritier Barras, Anne-Chantal // Respiration;2019, Vol. 98 Issue 2, p114 

    Background: Motor neuron disease (MND) invariably impacts on inspiratory muscle strength leading to respiratory failure. Regular assessment of sniff nasal inspiratory pressure (SNIP) and/or maximal mouth inspiratory pressure (MIP) contributes to early detection of a requirement for ventilatory...

    A two-test protocol (incremental/ramp (IWT) + supramaximal constant-load (CWR)) to affirm max and obviate reliance on secondary criteria has only been validated in highly fit children. In girls (n = 15) and boys (n = 12) with a wide range of VO2max (17-47 ml/kg/min), we hypothesized that this...

    Small pulse oximeters have become widely available and can be useful for noninvasive monitoring of blood oxygen saturation by nonmedical personnel. When training control of breathing, an oximeter helps to reassure clients who hyperventilate that their oxygenation is adequate, offsetting their...
