  • ETCO2 is a surrogate marker for arterial CO2. If increased, it confirms hypercapnia.
  • ETCO2 changes immediately with changes in the amount of CO2 in the airway (unlike SpO2 that shows a lag)
  • When using waveform capnography, look at the ETCO2 numeric value as well as the waveform.
  • Eliminate pulse checks during CPR, use ETCO2 instead."
