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 arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis, requiring a blood sample.

  • Detection of Ventilation Changes
  • Less risk and discomfort
  • Useful in CPR

EtCO2 outweighs PaCO2 in many situations and helps critical care specialists, Intensivists and Anesthesiologists to quickly and effectively monitor/diagnose their patients.
