After a short theoretical introduction you will be able to recognise the basic artifacts and pathological situations on the capnographic waveform in total of 9 clinical cases. Among other you will be explained the significance of this method during the induction to general anaesthesia and cardiopulmonary resuscitation as well. After mastering this algorithm you can rely on this simple but important monitoring method during you clinical practice.

The algorithm of capnography is excellent education material of todays indispensable patient monitoring modality not only in anesthesia. It brings interactive chance to solve clinical questions (including the cardiopulmonary resuscitation) where capnography plays a vital role in timely diagnosis and therapeutic decision making.The algorythm complies with recent scientific evidence and guidelines. It is suitable for training and adoption of this diagnostic method.
