Capnography Monitoring: Understanding the Basics.
- Basic introduction of the Respiratory and Cardiovascular Anatomy and Physiology.
- Definition of Capnography.
- Pysiology of CO2
- Respiratory cycle.
- Measuring ETCO2
- Discuss intubated vs. non-intubated patient uses.
- Discuss different Waveforms and treatments.
Length: 4 hours course (non CEU earning).
(No CE credits available).
This activity includes a review of capnography, including key terms; description of the physiology surrounding its application; a discussion of normal end tidal CO2 values, as well as a review of normal and abnormal waveforms.
The activity will:
Describe common capnography terms
- Summarize normal respiratory physiology
- Review the differences between oxygenation and ventilation
- Identify basic capnography waveforms
Capnography during non-invasive procedures:
Provide an overview of capnography monitoring during noninvasive ventilation (NIV). This activity includes an overview of NIV, including the goals of and indications for NIV. It also contains results of current studies that show ease of use, comfort and reliability of capnography
- Describe non-invasive ventilation (NIV)
- Explain the goals of NIV.
- List of some indications for NIV
- Describe current studies that show ease of use, comfort and reliability of capnography during NIV.
Capnography for the intubated and non-intubated in Pre-hospital Care.
This education module has three parts: Basic definitions in capnography, Capnography for the intubated patient in pre-hospital care and Capnography for the non-intubated patient in prehospital care.
