I took an awesome class today on capnography. We've had it for about a year, but with no training beyond being required to put it on all intubated patients and get a print out of a wave worm to verify the tube. This class covered intubated and non-intubated patients. Now I know what the numbers mean, what the waves forms mean, and how I can use that to help the patient. Hopefully I will be able to report about my experiences with it in coming days. I'm very anxious to try it on asthmatics and people in CHF.
