Transcutaneous CO2 tension (PtcCO2) was measured with heated and nonheated transcutaneous carbon dioxide electrode sensors during hypercarbia and standardized hypovolemic shock in anesthetized dogs. The 95% response times of the PtcCO2 electrode, measured during step increases in FICO2 at four electrode temperatures: 37, 39, 41, and 44 degrees C, were 15, 7.5, 5, and 3.5 min, respectively. During experiments with normal cardiac output, the PtcCO2 correlated well with PaCO2 (r = 0.96). Three… CONTINUE READING
