The purpose

Patients are at risk of respiratory depression after having surgery. The medications that patients are treated with to control their pain can impair their breathing and this can progress to respiratory and cardiac arrest and even death. Vital signs assessment on surgical wards is usually done every 4 hours and this may be insufficient to identify and manage many cases of respiratory depression. The aim of this study is to determine the impact on safety and nursing workflow of a respiratory monitoring on two surgical wards by measuring safety outcomes. Respiratory depression is a serious complication of pain treatment that can lead to patient complications and death. The level of monitoring available in hospitals by nursing staff is insufficient to manage this problem. If this new monitoring technology works as designed then patient safety can be improved while maintaining effective pain therapy.
