Does transcutaneous carbon dioxide partial pressure (TcCO2) monitoring detect hypoventilation prior to current sedation monitoring practices in order to prevent hypoxemia in sedated patients undergoing colonoscopies?
Does transcutaneous carbon dioxide partial pressure (TcCO2) monitoring detect hypoventilation prior to current sedation monitoring practices in order to prevent hypoxemia in sedated patients undergoing colonoscopies? [ Time Frame: one year ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
To verify if there is an association with the following variables: age, gender, weight, length, ASA-classification, sedation depth (BIS), co-morbidity, diagnostic or therapeutic colonoscopy. [ Time Frame: one year ]
