Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Crown Point Underscores Patient Safety Commitment Through Expanded Use of Capnography
Date:7/10/2014

CROWN POINT, Ind., July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Crown Point 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, hospitals committed to patient safety are 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 and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices have all recommended monitoring exhaled carbon dioxide with capnography to detect respiratory depression.

Franciscan St. Anthony Health is among the nation's leaders in the early implementation of capnography monitoring outside of the operating room.

"Franciscan St. Anthony Health always has made patient safety its top priority. The decision to expand capnography use outside of our operating rooms further demonstrates this pledge through excellent care using superior technology," hospital President David Ruskowski said. "We are glad to add this advanced equipment that will give our physicians and staff the lates
