End-Tidal CO2 – It Ain’t Just for Tube Confirmation Anymore

Learn how EtCO2 can be a powerful tool for detecting physiological changes

According to the 2019 ESO EMS Index, at least one End-tidal CO2 (EtCO2) value was obtained and documented after initiating advanced airway placement in 96% of cases. 

This high compliance rate should be celebrated and used as a springboard for other patient care opportunities using EtCO2. Watch Dr. Brent Myers and Holly Stewart as they explore how EtCO2 can be a powerful tool for the detection of physiologic change associated with sepsis, diabetic ketoacidosis, and other forms of shock in this on-demand webinar.   

After viewing the on-demand webinar, you’ll learn how to: 

  • Understand the use of EtCO2 not only to verify initial placement but to monitor on-going placement of advanced airways, as well as patient’s physiologic response 
  • Troubleshoot when EtCO2 readings are not consistent with the clinical picture 
  • Use EtCO2 for the detection of physiologic change associated with sepsis, diabetic ketoacidosis, and other forms of shock 
  • Determine the presence of bronchospasm and evaluate the effects of treatment 
  • Discuss how EtCO2 may be more accurate and predictive then pulse oximetry in the face of acute injury and illness 
  • Review the importance of continuous measurement of capnography and what effects the accuracy of readings
