OBJECTIVE To compare the time spent within a predefined safe range of CO2 (30-60 mmHg) during conventional ventilation between infants who were monitored with distal end-tidal CO2 (dETCO2, or capnography) and those who were not. STUDY DESIGN For this randomized, controlled multicenter study, ventilated infants with a double-lumen endotracheal tube were(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE High-frequency ventilation (HFV) is a powerful tool for CO2 elimination, and thus requires careful monitoring of CO2 . Our aim was to assess the diagnostic accuracy (correlation, agreement, and trending) of continuous distal capnography (dCap) with PaCO2 in infants ventilated with HFV. DESIGN This was a prospective, observational,(More)
