INTRODUCTION: Capnography measures end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2) which provides continuous, dynamic assessment of ventilatory status of patients. In patients receiving moderate sedation, respiratory depression is a potential risk. Capnography has been shown to decrease the incidence of hypoxemic episodes during sedation. We present here a novel method of ETCO2 measurement during bronchoscopy.
