Capnography: Key Measure for Proper Airway Placement, Return of Spontaneous Circulation, and Advanced Airway Displacement
Capnography, in the measurement of end-tidal carbon dioxide, provides an immediate assessment of ventilation adequacy, which is particularly helpful when treating patients who are in cardiac arrest or who have an advanced airway in place – supporting Patient Safety.

How to Better Detect Opioid-Induced Respiratory Depression Without Turning Every Unit Into an ICU
Postoperative patients are predisposed to episodes of respiratory depression, which if not detected and treated can lead to apnea, anoxic brain injury, cardiac arrest, and death. By continuously monitoring the patient’s end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2), respiratory rate (RR) and fractional inspired CO2 (FiCO2) through capnography, clinicians can more accurately assess ventilation adequacy and predict the onset of declining cardiovascular and respiratory conditions.
