The first nationally presented course on capnography is an eye opening experience where participants learn the incredible benefits gained from full ETCO2 monitoring and waveform assessment. In this exciting and informative session Bob Page, BAS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P, NCEE reviews the related A&P of the respiratory system and explains, through the use of multi-media and audience involvement, the role of capnography in trauma. From cases of cardiac arrest to airway and ventilation, assessment and management; from closed head injury to tension pneumothorax to shock; from triage of any patient to the ongoing monitoring of the patient. In fact, anyone with a problem with ABC’s should have continuous monitoring of ETCO2 and waveform. Come and learn how to integrate this session into your practice and utilize it to its fullest potential! Capnography: It’s not just for confirming tube placement!
