new OR nurse just started who needs help.
when you're by the patient who is being intubated what are you monitoring for? Do you look at the patient? The anasthetic machine? When you look at the machine, what do you monitor, the 02 sats, pulse, bp? the ECG? What about emergence? Do you look at the gases and whether they're all gone? vitals or the patient? I'm not sure what exactly I should be looking at.
Also, is there a website that points out to what all the things on the anasthetic machine monitors are ?
please and thank you
