Capnography: An Overview

Green Clock Hours: 1.00 - 1.50

Capnography captures end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) in all four breathing phases, making it a valuable measurement for healthcare professionals practicing in emergency, acute, operative, post-operative, and ICU settings. ETCO2 is sometimes referred to as the “other” vital sign.
