Capnography, the continuous analysis and recording of the concentration of CO2 in respiratory gas (1), is an integral part of monitoring for a ventilated patient (2). There are two types of capnographs: mainstream and sidestream (2).
In part one, Lluís Blanch M.D., PhD will discuss:
- The concepts and application of capnography for monitoring a ventilated patient
- Capnograph waveforms - CO2 as a function of time and volume, sidestream and mainstream capnography, volumetric capnography and its application in the ICU
- Ventilation and perfusion, measure of dead space and effect of PEEP
