This Protocol delineates the evidence for using devices for noninvasive patient monitoring of blood pressure, heart rhythms, pulse oximetry, end-tidal carbon dioxide, and respiratory waveforms. These protocols guide clinicians in the appropriate selection of patients for use of the device, application of the device, initial and ongoing monitoring, device removal, and selected aspects of quality control.For example, the home health aide has the opportunity to observe skin integrity. Odor may suggest the presence of a urinary tract infection. The home health aide may feel the raised areas of a rash, the tautness of edema, or the heat of a fever.
