Summary
Respiratory rate is a sensitive clinical indicator of a patient's physiologic well being. However, there has been some question as to the accuracy of documented respiratory rates. This descriptive pilot study was designed to compare the nursing staffs' subjective documented respiratory rate to an objective respiratory rate, using the Eden Trace II apnea monitor, in hospitalized medical cardiac patients. In this pilot study, the nursing staffs' documented respiratory rate was in error by 2 or more breaths per minute 77% of the time (7/9 observations). Furthermore, 70% of patients had vital signs recorded less frequently than ordered. These data support the need for continued research in the area of accuracy of respiratory rate measurement and documentation of these values
