Question


  1. What is the clinical effectiveness of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-compatible ventilators in adult patients requiring ventilation during an MRI exam?

  2. What is the clinical effectiveness of physiological monitoring equipment used during a MRI exam in adult patients on a ventilator?

  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines associated with the use of MRI-compatible ventilators for adult patients undergoing a MRI exam?

  4. What are the evidence-based guidelines associated with the use of physiological monitoring equipment used for ventilated adult patients during an MRI exam?


Key Message

No evidence regarding the clinical effectiveness of MRI-compatible ventilators and physiological monitors for ventilated patients during MRI was identified.No evidence-based guidelines associated with the use of MRI-compatible ventilators and physiological monitoring for ventilated adult patients during MRI exams were found.
