Webinar: The value of end-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring – it ain’t just for tube confirmation anymore!

Learn how end-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring can be a powerful tool for detecting physiological changes associated with sepsis, diabetes and more


Sponsored by ESO

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. Join 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, and potentially be a predictive tool in the face of acute injury or illness.

In this 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
  • Learn the keys to troubleshoot when EtCO2 readings are not consistent with the clinical picture
  • Learn how EtCO2 can be a powerful tool for detection of physiologic change associated with sepsis, diabetic ketoacidosis, and other forms of shock
  • Discuss how can we not only determine the presence of bronchospasm but 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
