How to Read and Interpret End-Tidal Capnography Waveforms
Capnography is a great way to confirm airway device placement and monitor ventilation, but it can do so much more. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a product of metabolism transported via perfusion and expelled through ventilation. End-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) waveform monitoring allows you to measure all three simultaneously, making it the most important vital sign you use.1 To evaluate the metabolism, ventilation and perfusion of a patient through EtCO2 waveform monitoring you need to read the PQRST: proper, quantity, rate, shape and trend. Proper means that you should know the normal readings for quantity, rate, shape and tr...
