Hoping to sponge up a little of your-all's medical expertise! I'm not sure whether I'm looking for bows or both or something else. The two spots it comes up are marked with brackets.

Thanks so much!

Q. What would you look for on Mr. Smith if he was paralyzed to see if he was having any problems with ventilation?
A. What would you look at?
Q. Yes.
A. His saturation on the monitor. You would look at his waveform. You would match the [] bows to make sure that they're both correct.
And if you didn't see that, you would look for the pulse oximeter that's located on his finger, somewhere on his body, his forehead, his nose, to make sure that you have a good waveform.
And you would correlate them both [] to make sure that you were getting a good reading.

From the context, I would say the first one would be "both". When you talk about matching, I think of "matching both." You match the saturation and the waveform.

The second one would also be both. This time you are correlating the pulse oximeter (saturation) with the waveform.

I may be in left field, but that's what it appears to be to me. Hope it helps!

I agee with that unless they're speaking of bows as in bending not straight. The secound is definitely "both".
Have a great day.

I still need a detailed elaboration on how things would work and how about going further into it.
