    I’m surprised that it’s not in common use where you work. I can’t’ speak to pre-hospital management but in the hospital, it’s pretty much been the standard of care for all ventilated patients and all patients getting moderate or deep procedural sedation for the last 6-8 years.

    EDís in my area donít use it at all, as far as I can tell. Iíve even seen ptís intubated without it.

    Local EMS uses it, as do the local EDs with any ventilated patient or anyone getting procedural/moderate sedation. Some of the units using mod sed like vascular radiology do not use it, though.

    Yea up in NE Indiana it’s barely used. The service I work for uses it aggressively. If it’s anything other than straight BLS, they get Capno on. Such a fantastic tool! Hospitals take it off pretty much immediately.
