ASA Standards for Basic Anesthesia Monitoring
During all anesthetics, the patient’s oxygenation, ventilation, circulation and temperature shall be continually evaluated
“Every patient receiving general anesthesia shall have the adequacy of ventilation continually evaluated. Qualitative clinical signs such as chest excursion, observations of the reservoir breathing bag and auscultation of breath sounds are useful.”
“Every patient receiving general anesthesia shall have, in addition to the above, circulatory function continually evaluated by at least one of the following: palpitation of pulse, auscultation of heart sounds, monitoring of tracing of intra-arterial pressure, ultrasound peripheral pulse monitoring, or pulse plethysmography or oximetry.”
