Abstract

Advances in radiology and imaging technologies and the emergent scope of practice have led to the capacity to provide services to a growing population of high-acuity patients with comorbid conditions. These procedures are often performed with the radiology nurse administering procedural sedation. Monitoring patients is challenging due to certain patient conditions and the unique environment, that is, the radiology procedure suite. The addition of capnography monitoring, along with standard monitoring, is a valuable modality that provides a continuous objective assessment of the patient's ventilatory status even when direct visualization of the patient is compromised. The purpose of this article is to provide clinical practice recommendations for the use of capnography by procedural sedation nurses outside the operating room setting.
