The effect of changing the mode of ventilation on the arterial-to-end-tidal CO2 difference and physiological dead space in laterally and dorsally recumbent horses during halothane anesthesia
Objective - To evaluate the effect of changing the mode of ventilation from spontaneous to controlled on the arterial-to-end-tidal CO2 difference [P(a-ET)CO2] and physiological dead space (VD(phys)/VT) in laterally and ...
Noninvasive monitoring of lung recruitment maneuvers in morbidly obese patients: the role of pulse oximetry and volumetric capnography
(Lippincott, Williams, 2013-08-29)
BACKGROUND: We conducted this study to determine whether pulse oximetry and volumetric capnography (VCap) can determine the opening and closing pressures of lungs of anesthetized morbidly obese patients. METHODS: Twenty ...
Capnography reflects ventilation/perfusion distribution in a model of acute lung injury
Background Changes in the shape of the capnogram may reflect changes in lung physiology. We studied the effect of different ventilation/perfusion ratios (V/Q) induced by positive end-expiratory pressures (PEEP) and lung ...
Cardio-respiratory studies in chronic mountain sckeness (Monge's syndrome)
(INTERPRINT PUBLICATIONS, 1975)
SUMMARY Comparisons with 14 normal, younger, male native residents of La Paz showed that 20 patients with Monge's syndrome have significantly higher mean body surface areas, hemoglobin, resting tidal volumes [VT (BTPS)], ...
Cardiopulmonary Effects of Matching Positive End-Expiratory Pressure to Abdominal Pressure in Concomitant Abdominal Hypertension and Acute Lung Injury
(LIPPINCOTT WILLIAMS & WILKINS, 2010)
Background: To evaluate the cardiopulmonary effects of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) equalization to intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) in an experimental model of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and acute lung ...
