    Capnography is one of the best tools available. It amazes me how little some people use it. What amazes me even more is how little hospitals use it.

    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.

    ED’s in my area don’t use it at all, as far as I can tell. I’ve even seen pt’s 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.

    The only good reason I can think of to carry narcan would be fentanyl exposure (to a responder)

    Funny thing, a few needle dispensers are giving dopers narcan so their battle buddy can bring them back from the light. Convenient.
