Capnography is defined as a monitoring tool for examining the concentration or partial pressure of CO2 in expiratory gases. Capnography is mainly used during sedation procedures, and for constant monitoring in intensive care units. The technology is also used for diagnosis of respiratory diseases. Capnography machines generate information about CO2 production, alveolar ventilation, pulmonary perfusion, respiratory patterns, and elimination of CO2 from the ventilator and anesthesia breathing circuit. The shape of the capnogram curve generated by measuring above mentioned parameters are used for diagnosis of asthma, emphysema and bronchitis, in which the composition of gases within the lung is strongly affected.
