Abstract

In the prehospital management of emergency patients, continuous measurement of end-expiratory CO2 concentration and pulse oximetry are being used ever more frequently as sensitive non-invasive monitoring methods. Both parameters provide important information about the patient's ventilatory, circulatory and metabolic status. Currently, individual devices are available for capnometry and pulse oxymetry. The present paper introduces a compact, portable 'Respiratory Monitor' that permits the monitoring of respiratory rate, oxygen saturation and end-expiratory CO2 with a single unit. Such a device is highly suitable for use under the specific conditions of transport and management of intubated and ventilated emergency patients outside the hospital.
