Anaesthetic monitoring


In particular sick & older patients or trauma cases require close monitoring under anaesthetic as they are often recovering from shock and may have pulmonary or myocardial contusions. Some fracture repairs and spinal operations can be take several hours and the ability to monitor vital signs and take action to correct variations in blood pressure or oxygenation etc can be beneficial.


Parameters which are monitored under general anaesthetic include:


Continous Electrocardiogram trace

Non invasive blood pressure

Pulse oximetry spO2

Core body temperature rectal probe

Respiratory rate

Minute volume

Tidal volume

Inspired oxygen concentration

Inspired isoflurane and nitrous oxide concentration’

Capnography (end expired CO2 concentration)


Pre anaesthetic blood testing

Higher risk or older patients receive a pre anaesthetic

blood test to assess liver and kidney function to reduce

anaesthetic risks.
