Join us while we explore part 2 of a simulation-based approach to end-tidal capnography (EtCO2). Identify the perfusion status and treatment of a non-intubated patient and refresh capnography basics with various scenarios to learn how EtCO2 correlates to a patient’s perfusion status, stability and overall treatment.
1. Obtain a basic understanding of the ability of EtCO2 to aide in the understanding of the patient's perfusion status
2. Obtain a basic understanding of how EtCO2 works and should be considered a key diagnostic monitoring tool in patient assessment and management.
3. Describe various scenarios where EtCO2 would provide useful insight to assist with clinical decision making
