Note: Beginning June 1, 2013, the Oridion Knowledge Center will be closed and all online training for capnography will be offered through the Covidien Professional Affairs and Clinical Education (PACE) website: www.covidien.com/PACE.
These comprehensive learning modules explain the use of etCO2 monitoring (capnography) in various clinical settings, and how it may increase patient safety in these clinical environments.
Choose from the self-paced courses listed below. Please note, in the US, some courses may be used to meet or accumulate contact hour requirements for re-licensure.
The purpose of this educational activity is to provide an overview of capnography monitoring. This activity includes a review of capnography, including key terms; description of the physiology surrounding its application; a discussion of normal end tidal CO2 values, as well as a review of normal and abnormal waveforms. The activity will
Respiratory depression is a widely recognized possible complication of sedation and analgesic administration. Ventilation monitoring using capnography has been determined to be the earliest indicator of hypoventilation and episodes of no-breath. This lecture will discuss ventilation monitoring using capnography during procedural sedation. The activity will:
The purpose of this educational activity is to provide an overview of capnography monitoring in the management of critically ill patients. This activity includes:
During the past few years, organizations such as the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) and the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) have indicated a need to increase patient safety for patients receiving opioids by monitoring ventilation. Although pulse oximetry is known to monitor oxygenation it does not deliver information on the adequacy of ventilation. Capnography has been determined to be the fastest indicator of ventilatory depression. This lecture describes ventilation monitoring using capnography to detect hypoventilation in patients receiving PCA or neuraxial opioids in the postoperative period.
The purpose of this educational activity is to provide an overview of capnography monitoring during noninvasive ventilation (NIV). This activity includes an overview of NIV, including the goals of and indications for NIV. It also contains results of current studies that show ease of use, comfort and reliability of capnography during NIV. The activity will
