End-Tidal CO2 in CPR

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), is one of the important topics in the field of First Aid.

CPR refers to cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which is a technology that combines chest compressions and artificial respiration to give first aid when breathing stops and heartbeat stops. The rescue objects of CPR are sudden and nonviolent deaths. The rescue executor is the first witness. Once cardiac arrest occurs, if there is no immediate and timely rescue and resuscitation, after 4-6 minutes, the patient's brain and other important human organs and tissues will be irreversibly damaged. Therefore, after cardiac arrest, cardiopulmonary resuscitation must be carried out immediately on site.

At present, the commonly used means for cardiopulmonary resuscitation in clinic are mainly hand assisted therapy, including chest compression, artificial respiration, etc. However, due to the fact that cardiopulmonary resuscitation under this mode is easily affected by different external factors such as the physical strength of the rescuer, the final effect of cardiopulmonary resuscitation cannot be judged in a timely manner, which also affects the follow-up treatment to a certain extent.

ETCO2 is a non-invasive monitoring method, which can help doctors and nurses better judge the effect of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and improve the "visibility" of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. At the same time, this technology can also reflect patients' metabolic indicators, blood flow, etc., effectively follow up patients' ventilation indicators, and provide effective assistance for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Portable capnography monitor by Kingst can realize the above functions.

During CPR, PetCO2 (End tidal carbon dioxide partial pressure) can be used to judge whether the position of the tracheal tube is correct and the ventilation condition, help doctors judge the circulation and metabolism status of patients, assist in judging the mechanical failure of ventilators and anesthesia machines, and is an important monitoring means to evaluate the effect and prognosis of CPR. Continuous monitoring of PETCO2 during cardiopulmonary resuscitation can provide a more intuitive reflection of the effect of external chest compression during cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and can predict the effect of recovery of spontaneous circulation after cardiopulmonary resuscitation in advance, it is helpful for timely replacement of rescue measures and judgment of rescue effect, so as to improve the success rate of rescue. In short, the higher the level of PETCO2, the better the CPR treatment, and the better the prognosis. The position of endotracheal tube can be determined through ETCO2 monitoring, and used to monitor the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and as an early indicator of ROSC.

According to the AHA CPR guidelines in 2015, for the CPR patients who have been intubated, after high-quality CPR, the ETCO values monitored immediately after intubation and 20 minutes after intubation are less than 10 mmHg, indicating a poor prognosis. For non-intubated patients, it is not recommended to use the ETCO2 value to judge the prognosis.

A large number of studies show that PETCO2 is closely related to the quality of resuscitation, the success rate of resuscitation and the survival rate. Therefore, PETCO2 monitoring can be used as an effective indicator to evaluate the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and clinical prognosis.
