Wood County Hospital Boosts Patient Safety with Expanded Use of Capnography
Date:11/19/2013

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wood County Hospital recently expanded its use of capnography for respiratory monitoring outside the operating room, joining a growing group of healthcare leaders in embracing state-of-the-art patient safety technology.

Capnography measures how effectively patients are breathing and can alert medical caregivers when life-threatening respiratory depression occurs. By measuring the amount of carbon dioxide the patient is exhaling, capnography serves as the earliest indication of evolving respiratory compromise, which can lead to significant morbidity or even cardiopulmonary arrest if undetected.

Long used in operating rooms to monitor patients under general anesthesia, Wood County Hospital is now deploying capnography to monitor the quality of patients' breathing in other care areas where respiratory depression may occur. Early indication of respiratory depression with capnography enables medical staff to intervene before serious adverse events happen.

The Joint Commission, the nation's leading hospital accreditation organization; the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) have all recommended monitoring exhaled carbon dioxide with capnography to detect respiratory depression.

"Wood County Hospital is committed to providing the highest quality of care. Our widespread use of capnography to monitor the adequacy of ventilation of patients outside the operating room is in line with the latest recommendations and underscores our dedication to patient safety," said Stanley Korducki, President of Wood County Hospital.
