The value of airway pressure monitoring is the improved clarity in identifying end-expiration. Short of monitoring intrapleural pressures, airway pressure monitoring has the potential to give the most accurate method for identifying the correct respiratory point to read hemodynamic values. Airway pressure monitoring can improve the reliability of hemodynamic waveform analysis between nurses and reduce some of the subjectivity associated with hemodynamic waveform analysis.
