A system of classification for the clinical applications of capnography
- 183 Downloads
We have attempted to list all the clinical applications of capnography described to date and classify them into categories. From an extensive Pubmed search 46 clinical applications of capnography were listed. To classify these we used six categories- Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Anesthetic Delivery Apparatus, Homeostasis and Non-perioperative. This list collates the described uses of capnography and this system of classification provides an aide-de-memoir in anesthesia education and simulation.
