Have you ever wondered, “Is my ET tube in the right place?” “Are those really epigastric sounds or just the sound of the engine?” “Is there a way to continually monitor my patient’s condition without taking vital signs every minute?”
If so, we have a webinar for you! Join us for a lively discussion on why and how we use capnography as a tool for early detection and early intervention of patient conditions which may compromise metabolism, perfusion and ventilation.
Our webinar discussion will cover many topics including:
- The process of CO2 production
- Reasons for measuring CO2
- The difference between pulse oximetry and capnography
- The benefits of using capnography in the prehospital setting
- The difference between mainstream and sidestream capnography
- Capnography waveforms for various pathologies
This webinar is ideal for all EMS medical directors, EMS and fire service chiefs and all EMS and fire service providers.
