Areas of interest included selection of leads, diagnosis of infarct evolution, and use of right precordial leads. This article reviews the ECG criteria for using ST-segment monitoring to differentiate wide QRS rhythms, diagnose bundle-branch block, and recognize ischemia after thrombolytic therapy or PTCA. Strategies to improve the quality of bedside ECG monitoring are suggested. 9%). 2%). 6% never do. 3% correctly identified all 3. Forty-three percent said that right precordial leads were not recorded in their unit; 7% said right precordial leads are used almost all the time in patients with inferior myocardial infarction.

Studies are needed to determine the efficacy of using the waveforms as a means of assessing such things as patient ventilator synchrony and auto-PEEP. To date, the waveforms are useful adjuncts to other assessment techniques, and usefulness is dependent on accurate interpretation. Because the waveforms may be graphed, they are especially useful to researchers for documentation purposes. qxd 36 8/22/05 10:18 AM Page 36 Chapter 2 / Respiratory Waveforms Monitoring CLINICAL RECOMMENDATIONS The rating scales for the Level of Recommendation column range from I to VI, with levels indicated as follows: I, manufacturer’s recommendation only; II, theory based, no research data to support recommendations, recommendations from expert consensus group may exist; III, laboratory data only, no clinical data to support recommendations; IV, limited clinical studies to support recommendations; V, clinical studies in more than 1 or 2 different populations and situations to support recommendations; VI, clinical studies in a variety of patient populations and situations to support recommendations.

For example, if a pressure-time waveform is required to be graphed simultaneously with a pulmonary artery (PA) tracing in order to document endexpiration, the competency may be verified in conjunction 35 with verification of competencies in measuring PA pressures. FUTURE RESEARCH Although monitoring of respiratory waveforms is increasingly present on ventilators, its usefulness has yet to be established. ” Studies are needed to determine the efficacy of using the waveforms as a means of assessing such things as patient ventilator synchrony and auto-PEEP.
