Evaluation of variables to describe the shape of volumetric capnography curves during bronchoconstriction in dogs.


The aim of the study was to investigate changes in volumetric capnography (V(C)) variables during bronchoconstriction in dogs and compare it with total respiratory resistance (R(L)) measured with a Fleisch pneumotachograph. Six dogs were challenged with increasing concentrations of carbachol until obvious signs of bronchoconstriction were seen. All V(C… (More)
