Intravenous midazolam was administered and Ms West was given an albuterol treatment. Within 3 minutes, her status improved, and her respiratory rate decreased to 10 breaths/min. 4). Her spontaneous rate was 18 and tidal volumes were approximately 500 mL. She was comfortable. The following day, Ms West was successfully extubated following a 1-hour trial of continuous positive airway pressure. While many more respiratory waveforms were available on Ms West’s ventilator, the clinicians focused on the use of pressure-time and flow-time waveforms.

Comparison Studied The similarity in QRS was compared between leads V1 and MCL1 and between leads V6 and MCL6 to determine the accuracy of the modified leads commonly used in bedside monitoring as substitutes for true V leads. An additional goal of this study was to determine if the measurement from onset of QRS to tallest peak or nadir of QRS is a useful criterion for differentiating aberration from ventricular ectopy. Study Procedures Information from leads MCL1, MCL6, V1, and V6 and intracardiac leads was recorded in all patients.

The sensitivity was 80% for the best single lead for each artery, 93% for the best 2 leads, and 100% for the best 3 leads. Clinical Implications The study indicates that use of a single lead is inadequate in monitoring for ischemia, but the use of 2 appropriate leads provides a sensitivity of 93%, and the use of 3 appropriate leads could replace the 12-lead ECG for monitoring during PTCA. These findings could also apply to postprocedure monitoring in the cardiac care unit. 12. Tisdale LA, Drew BJ.
