EMS Virtual Peer-to-Peer Capnography Training
Our PACE team engages clinical speakers dedicated to patient care and educating others on safe and effective use of respiratory monitoring and airway management products. Our EMS Virtual Peer-to-Peer Capnography Training program is designed to provide an interactive forum for you to discuss and exchange information on the use of capnography monitoring in the prehospital setting.
Faculty members review topics that may impact clinical decisions and product choices based on published clinical evidence, economic data, and personal experience. Programs can be held at a local venue or in a training facility or institution.
We’ll work with you to identify training and educational needs related to our technology and patient monitoring solutions. And provide the right resources to fulfill those needs.
