I would recommend looking up John West's books, like this one:

<Bump>

Is monitoring ETCO2 still mandatory for AASM accredited labs? I can't find anything about it under the current standards.

Can someone please explain why it's important to monitor this channel for pediatrics? What's the treatment if it's abnormal?

Scoring rules call for it.
As for Tx, that is a good question.

My experiences have been that it's a waste of the techs time and a pita for the child. With all due respect for all the techs that work in pediatric labs, I realize that I may be wrong though.

I now see where it's only recommended by the AASM, not mandatory.

Yeah, I think it generally has no value, unless there's other complications that are obvious (developmental issues, obesity, etc).

My understanding is that the recommendation came about because some early studies used ETCO2 as a measure of flow, or something like that.
