Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hypoxemia [ Time Frame: From the start to the end of colonoscopy, i.e. from 0 h to approximately 2 h ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Further complications [ Time Frame: From the start to the end of colonoscopy, i.e. from 0 h to approximately 2 h ]

Estimated Enrollment: 760
Study Start Date: February 2010
Primary Completion Date: February 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Capnography
Arm with capnographic monitoring
Procedure: Capnography
Monitoring of the capnography curve for early detection of apnea
No Intervention: Standard
Standard monitoring.

Detailed Description:
In this randomized controlled trial the utility of capnography gets evaluated. Hypoxemia may occur during sedation with midazolam and propofol. Whether hypoxemia may be prevented by an additional capnographic monitoring is subject of the study.
