Correlation between end-tidal and arterial carbon dioxide partial pressure in patients undergoing craniotomy


Background: Both end-tidal carbon dioxide pressure (ETCO2) is used routinely as an indicator of arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2) and thus adequacy of ventilation. Accurate determination of the PaCO2 level in neuroanesthesia is quite important because of its effect on cerebral blood flow and also hyperventilation is often used to reduce… (More)
