Abstract

This study showed how often oxygen desaturation occurred in patients undergoing upper endoscopy procedures; extent of desaturation after sedation with diazepam, relationship between desaturation and respiratory function status and compared two types of instruments Olympus (XQ, K10). Ninety nine patients undergoing elective and emergency upper endoscopy procedures were monitorized with pulse oximeter before sedation, during and after the procedure. We did not find any change clinically significant.
