Memorial Hospital of Lafayette County Boosts Patient Safety with Expanded Use of Capnography Technology
Date:4/24/2013

onitor patient respiration underscores this commitment," said MHLC Director of Nursing Kathy Ruef . "We gladly embrace the latest recommendations to provide our patients the safest patient experience possible."

In late 2012, Memorial Hospital decided that it wanted the ability to monitor carbon dioxide levels on patients receiving patient controlled pain medication. After extensive investigation, it determined the safest way to do this was to purchase new IV and PCA pumps that could monitor carbon dioxide levels and automatically shut down pain medication delivery if a patient's carbon dioxide level was not within normal levels.  The hospital chose Alaris IV pumps, as they have all those safety features and contain capnography equipment from Covidien, a leading global provider of healthcare products and recognized innovator in patient monitoring and respiratory care devices. Alaris IV pumps also have features to program all of our medication protocols to add another layer of patient safety. 

"We commend Memorial Hospital of Lafayette County for being part of a growing number of facilities across the country committed to patient safety through the use of capnography," says Robert J. White , President, Respiratory & Monitoring Solutions, Covidien. "Its decision to monitor patients at risk of respiratory depression with both capnography and oximetry ensures patients have a level of protection from risk when using state-of-the-art pain management systems."
