BACKGROUND Before obtaining results of arterial blood gas analysis in mechanically ventilated patients undergoing neurosurgery, the volume of ventilation is primarily adjusted according to endtidal CO2 (EtCO2). We characterized the impact of various arterial blood pressure changes on arterial PCO2 (PaCO2) to EtCO2 differences (PaCO2-EtCO2) in patients… CONTINUE READING
