Becoming the Capnography ‘Champion’ for Capnography during Procedural Sedation

Best practice feedback has indicated hospitals that assign a capnography monitoring ‘champion’ to help spearhead the implementation have experienced more effective utilization and greater clinical adoption. The Covidien Implementation Connection offers information, education and tools for the clinical ‘champion’ to establish a framework for success.

To begin your journey to becoming the capnography ‘champion’, review the Covidien Implementation Connection resources and access Professional Affairs and Continuing Education clinical education and non-clinical education courses for clinicians monitoring patients under procedural sedation. When you have completed all courses in the general care floor curriculum, you will receive a completion certificate. Continuing education credits for nurses and respiratory therapists are available for some courses in the curriculum.

As a capnography ‘champion’ you can also expand your knowledge of capnography monitoring across multiple hospital environments, including critical care, general care floor, emergency/resuscitation and pre-hospital/EMS.
