Capnography is a technology that provides a graphic picture and an objective measure of a patient's ventilatory status.
While not a new technology, capnography is a hot topic now because of its reference in the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) Guidelines, and more states are requiring it as part of their intubation protocol.
This course provides an overview of the intubated uses of capnography, a summary of the use of capnography in the treatment of asthma, and an in-depth presentation of the less common, non-intubated uses of capnography.
