capnometry

capnometry

 [kap-nom´ĕ-tre]
the determination of the end-tidal partial pressure of carbon dioxide.

cap·nom·e·try

(kap-nom'ĕ-trē),
Measurement of CO2 in the proximal airway during inspiration and expiration. End tidal CO2 (or CO2 at the end of exspiration) is particularly useful clinically.

capnometry

(1) Capnography, see there
(2) The science of measuring atmospheric concentrations of smoke—e.g., in smoke plumes or in flue gas.

cap·nom·e·try

(kap-nom'e-trē)
The process of measuring and recording the carbon dioxide concentration of exhaled air at the patient's airway using a capnometer.

The object of the assignment concerns the delivery of devices for percutaneous capnometry, including disposables and any maintenance contract.
Electrocardiogram, blood pressure, pulse oximetry and capnometry were monitored during the anaesthesia period.
Patient was successfully intubated with 7.5 number RAE cuffed ETT (Ivory North Pole) through left nostril, which was confirmed with auscultation and capnometry. Throat packing was done.
Correct endotracheal tube placement is verified based on clinical findings, such as tube fogging, chest rise, and auscultation, with secondary confirmation by capnometry performed at the discretion of the attending physician.
Sublingual microcirculation has been considered as a surrogate measure for gut mucosal microcirculation because the lingual region is an embryonic derivate of the digestive tract and correlates with sublingual capnometry and gastric tonometry in spite of different vascularization [7].
