Product Overview

Capnography has the unique ability to aid clinicians in assessing both ventilation and blood flow. This program reviews the physiology that allows exhaled carbon dioxide (CO2) to monitor ventilation and perfusion. The technology required for measuring exhaled CO2 is presented in order to allow attendees to identify which devices are best for their clinical practice. Due to its capability to assess both ventilation and perfusion, capnography has been called the “15 second vital sign.” The use of capnography is likely to grow quickly throughout the hospital and even into pre-hospital settings.   By the end of this program, the participant should be able to:  1. Recall the relationship between partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2) in blood and partial pressure of end-tidal carbon dioxide (PetCO2) levels.  2. Discuss the reason capnography is a rapid assessment of inadequate ventilation. 3. Discuss how capnography can reflect a reduction in cardiac output  4. Describe the four key applications of capnography in patient monitoring.
