Abstract

The respiratory system is complex and involves components of ventilation, oxygenation, and energy expenditure that are integral to life. Thus, monitoring of the respiratory system is essential for all clinicians. Unfortunately, there is no single monitor that provides the clinician with all of the information needed to diagnose abnormalities of the respiratory system and provide appropriate support. Thus, a thorough understanding of many of the monitors available to guide the clinician in diagnosis and support is necessary. By continuing to better our understanding of this complex physiological system, we can improve our ability to provide man with appropriate life-sustaining therapy in the time of need.
