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.

Condition Intervention Phase
In the Study the Value of Capnography for Avoiding Complications During Sedation for PEG is Evaluated.
Device: Capnography
Device: Standard monitoring
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Clinical Value of Advanced Patient Monitoring Using Capnography With Analysis of the Integrated Pulmonary Index During Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy.
