Administering 2 mg of midazolam has calmed him right down, and he jokingly asks if he can have it for his kids as he giggles his way into the OR. Monitoring Standard required intraoperative monitoring (general, regional, or sedation) includes continuous ECG, blood pressure (at least every 5 min), continuous pulse oximetry, and capnography in cases of intubation. Additional monitors may include temperature, invasive blood pressure (arterial line), central venous pressure, pulmonary artery, TEE (transesophageal echocardiography), and processed EEG (electroencephalography) monitoring, all at the discretion of the provider and guided by the patient’s health status and type of procedure.
