Volumetric Capnography

Volumetric Capnography vs Time-based Capnography

Volumetric and time-based capnography are two techniques for measuring carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in exhaled breath, particularly in medical settings. They serve different purposes and provide unique insights into a patient’s respiratory status. Conventional (time-based) capnography allows only qualitative and

How does a capnometer help in Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique performed through small incisions with the aid of a camera and specialized instruments, a capnometer plays a crucial role in monitoring the patient’s respiratory status and ensuring their safety throughout the procedure. In

What capnography waves say about your patients?

What capnography waveforms say about your patients?

Capnography waveforms say different things about your patient. Based on that, you can diagnose and treat your patients accordingly. Here are some different capnograms that help you to identify your patient’s conditions. Normal Capnogram Bronchospasm/Asthma/COPD Increasing EtCO2 (Hypoventilation) Decrease in

Cardia output

How is EtCO2 used to measure Cardiac Output?

Cardiac output can be predicted using an EtCO2 (capnography) monitor because they are linearly related. In other words, Cardiac Output rise with increased EtCO2 and fall with decreased EtCO2 levels. Hence, it is beneficial in critical care and operation theatre

Benefits of EtCO2 over PaCO2

Benefits of EtCO2 over PaCO2

Carbon dioxide levels in the body are measured using two different methods: end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) and partial pressure of carbon dioxide in arterial blood (PaCO2). Noninvasively, EtCO2 is measured via exhaled breath, typically capnography, whereas PaCO2 is measured via

How does Sodalime affect the EtCO2 graph?

How does sodalime affect capnograph?

Sodalime is a chemical absorbent commonly used in anaesthesia systems to absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from exhaled breath. It is often used with mechanical ventilation to maintain a proper balance of gases during surgery. The EtCO2 (end-tidal carbon dioxide) graph

inaccuracy in capnography due to moisture

Inaccuracy in Capnography due to moisture

Yes, you heard it right. Capnography Monitors show inaccurate results due to moisture. Nowadays, the majority of capnometers use NDIR-based sensors. It has light-transmitting and light-absorbing properties that allow it to accurately measure the concentration of CO2 in a patient’s

Curare Cleft Detection using Capnometer

Curare Cleft – Patient’s effort to breathe

Curare cleft is an indicator for anesthesiologists that helps them to detect manual breathing in ventilated patients during anaesthesia. When Curare Cleft is detected? During General Anesthesia, the patient is connected to a ventilator, which controls their breathing. In other
