The revised digital transcutaneous PCO2/SpO2 Ear Sensor is a reliable noninvasive monitoring tool in patients after cardiac surgery


Roediger, R. The revised digital transcutaneous PCO2/SpO2 Ear Sensor is a reliable noninvasive monitoring tool in patients after cardiac surgery. 2010, University of Zurich, Faculty of Medicine.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to validate the revised SenTec V-Sign 2 sensor (SenTec AG, Therwil, Switzerland) for combined noninvasive continuous assessment of pulse rate, pulse oximetry (SpO(2)), and transcutaneous carbon dioxide tension (PtcCO(2)) in adults after cardiac surgery.

DESIGN: A prospective clinical study.

SETTING: A single-center university hospital.

PARTICIPANTS: Twenty adult patients aged 36 to 84 years after cardiac surgery.

INTERVENTIONS: SpO(2) and PtcCO(2) values of three V-Sign 2 sensors (SenTec AG) attached at the earlobe, forehead, and cheek and SpO(2) values of the Nellcor Durasensor (Model DS-100A; Nellcor Puritan Bennett Inc, Pleasanton, CA) were compared with simultaneous measurements of blood gases and end-expiratory carbon dioxide.

MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Measurements were performed during periods of hyper-, normo-, and hypocapnia and then at 30-minute intervals up to 5 hours. Bland-Altman analysis and simple regression analysis were used.

RESULTS: The detection failures for PtcCO(2) were 0.3% to 1.3%, for SpO(2) 10% to 25%, and for pulse rate 5% to 10%. The V-Sign 2 earlobe sensor provided the best results. The mean bias and limits of agreement for PtcCO(2ear) and PaCO(2) were 1.1 and -3.4/+5.5 mmHg. The drift of PtcCO(2) was negligible at all locations. The mean bias and limits of agreement of V-Sign SpO(2ear) and SaO(2), as well as V-Sign pulse rate and the electrocardiogram, were -1.7% and -6.8/+3.9% and 1.2 beats/min and -3.3/+5.8 beats/min. End-expiratory carbon dioxide showed a weak correlation with PaCO(2) (r(2) = 0.47).

CONCLUSIONS: Transcutaneous capnometry using the revised V-Sign 2 sensor at the earlobe is a reliable monitoring tool during the recovery period of patients after cardiac surgery. This approach has the potential to reduce the number of arterial blood gas samples.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
