End Tidal CO2 Monitors

We have some new toys in the ER, end-tidal CO2 monitors. The 2010 ACLS Guidelines incorporates these so we better learn how to use them. In this video, Tess shows us how to hook them up (and just how tachypneic she is).

In the second half of the video, we look at the waveforms. Namely, for use in

  • asthmatics,
  • during procedural sedation monitoring, and
  • during resuscitations.
