10% of patients suffer SpO2 < 85% episodes longer than an hour([FOOTNOTE=Sun Z, Sessler DI, Dalton JE, et al. Postoperative Hypoxemia Is Common and Persistent: A Prospective Blinded Observational Study. Anesthesia and analgesia. 2015;121(3):709-715.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
90% of prolonged episodes of SpO2 < 90% go unrecognized by intermittent monitoring9
50% of patients with respiratory distress have delayed interventions8
97% of opioid-induced respiratory depression closed claims were considered preventable with better monitoring4
