Product Overview

This self-paced course explores the physiologic concept of oxygenation, including how it is achieved in the body through respiration, ventilation and perfusion as well as how to measure it effectively with pulse oximetry (SpO2) and end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) monitoring. Check-Your-Knowledge questions and clinical-based scenarios are presented to enhance the learning experience. The course ends with a fun game to promote learning retention.   By the end of this program, the participant should be able to:  Discuss the basic physiology and principles of pulse oximetry (SpO2) Identify various sensor placements used in monitoring pulse oximetry. Explain common factors that affect the pulse oximetry reading. Explain the principles of impedance respiration monitoring. Describe how impedance respiration is measured. Name factors that could affect the impedance respiration reading. Explain the basic principles of CO2 monitoring. Distinguish between sidestream and mainstream monitoring technology. Identify the characteristics of a normal capnogram. Identify factors that can change the appearance of the capnogram.
