Question


  1. What is the clinical effectiveness of mainstream and sidestream capnography in patients requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)?

  2. What is the clinical effectiveness of mainstream and sidestream capnography in patients who require continuous CO2 monitoring?

  3. What is the cost-effectiveness of mainstream and sidestream capnography in patients requiring CPR?

  4. What is the cost-effectiveness of mainstream and sidestream capnography in patients who require continuous CO2 monitoring?

  5. What are the evidence based guidelines associated with the use of mainstream and sidestream capnography in patients requiring CPR?

  6. What are the evidence based guidelines associated with the use of mainstream and sidestream capnography in patients who require continuous CO2 monitoring?


Key Message

One systematic review, seven randomized controlled trials, five non-randomized studies, and one economic evaluation were identified regarding the clinical and cost-effectiveness of mainstream and sidestream capnography. In addition, nine evidence-based guidelines associated with the use of mainstream and sidestream capnography were identified.
