New Surgical Monitor at WKAH

In January we recieved our new multiparameter surgical monitor.  The new monitor allows us to monitor a number of parameters and trends during anesthesia and alert us to patient problems quickly.  The new monitor measures patient blood pressure, heart rate, ECG, respiratory rate, blood oxygen levels, expired CO2 levels and capnography.  Anesthesia safety has always been a top priority for our patients and our new monitor is another tool that helps us achieve this goal and provide the highest standard of care to our patients.
