Dr Simon Laing, Emergency Medicine Consultant, based at Heartlands Hospital, discusses this paper, End Tidal CO2 as a predictor of survival in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Simon’s hope is that these podcasts will encourage listeners to look at the evidence themselves and think about their practice. End tidal carbon dioxide levels may influence how long one will continue resuscitation.
You might also want to look at Kolar‘s paper.
Meducator01 has done a whole series on capnography if you want more detail.
Hoping to see a whole series of these reviews.
