More likely to detect respiratory depression([FOOTNOTE=Godwin SA, Burton JH, Gerardo CJ, et al; American College of Emergency Physicians. Clinical policy: procedural sedation and analgesia in the emergency department. Ann Emerg Med. 2014;63(2):247-258.e18.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
In hypoxic events4
A cost-avoidance model and study examined the financial impact of adding routine capnography to GI endoscopy procedures.
Based on the rates and costs of adverse events, the investigators concluded that the cost avoidance for the reference hospital was more than $300,000 annually.
