Good Morning NC ENA,

Did you know that ENA has several clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) that are evidence-based and help facilitate the application of current evidence into everyday emergency nursing practice?

CPGs contain recommendations based on a systematic review and critical analysis of the literature about a clinical question. CPGs are created following the rigorous process described in ENA’s Guidelines for the Development of Clinical Practice Guidelines.

The purpose of CPGs is to positively impact patient care in emergency nursing by bridging the gap between practice and currently available evidence. 

The CPG that is being shared today is related to the use of capnography in the emergency department.

You may access the CPG using the link above or print the guideline from the attached file.

Have a great week!
