The use of capnography in the procedure setting has been discussed both in the literature and educational programs in recent years. While the majority of ARIN members surveyed have implemented capnography in their departments, ARIN’s Board of Directors empaneled a task force to thoroughly research a position statement. ARIN’s position statement addresses the recommendations for appropriate and optimal patient monitoring as a vital component of safe patient care.
