Guidelines for clinical use a. Low-cost, disposable devices that produce a color change in the presence of CO2 are commercially available. 6. 6 mL/kg/min). Note that the area under the curve represents carbon dioxide elimination, which equals carbon dioxide production during steady-state conditions.

In this case, transpulmonary pressure (difference between Pplat and Peso) is targeted at <27 cmH2O. e. Currently, our practice is to measure esophageal pressure for hypoxemic patients who weigh more than 120 kg. f. An alternative to esophageal pressure to assess changes in pleural pressure is respiratory variation in the central venous pressure waveform. C. Gastric Pressure 1. An alternative for measuring gastric pressure is measuring bladder pressure. The change in esophageal pressure required to trigger the ventilator is the level of auto-PEEP.

At high altitude). 5. The PaO2 also increases with hyperventilation. 6. Effect of FIO2 (fraction of inspired oxygen) a. For example, a PaO2 of 95 mmHg breathing 100% oxygen is quite different from a PaO2 of 95 mmHg breathing air (21% oxygen). 7. Arterial partial pressure of CO2 (PaCO2) a. The PaCO2 reflects the balance between carbon dioxide production ( CO2) and alveolar ventilation ( A): PaCO2 = K × CO2 / A where K is a constant. 8.
