The most versatile tool in the trauma nurses toolbox is ETCO2 and waveform capnography. This "Swiss Army Knife" of trauma care can be utilized in all specialties that provide care along the entire trauma continuum, and provides the ability to assess for respiratory and metabolic derangements. This session will review the use of ETCO2 as a means to obtain accurate, real time information as to patient status and using the technology to guide resuscitation and patient care.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the utility of waveform capnography and end tidal CO2 in trauma assessment and resuscitation.
  • Relate waveform capnography readings to the underlying pathophysiology in hemorrhagic shock and trauma.
  • Utilize waveform capnography and end tidal CO2 values as part of a multifactorial assessment in order to quickly assess for and diagnose occult shock in trauma patients.
  • Discuss the application of monitoring waveform capnography and end tidal C02 in other trauma populations.

Trauma is an acute injury that presents a challenge in care, especially in complex cases. The complexity of the case is not necessarily related to the severity of the injury. Trauma patients requiring blood products present a unique challenge. Calcium should be included in your mass transfusion protocol and in the overall process of Trauma resuscitation.

Objectives:

  • Describe the role that calcium plays during trauma resuscitation.
  • Discuss calcium administration as related to mass transfusion and overall critical trauma resuscitation.
