Carbon dioxide single breath tests (SBT-CO2) were obtained during anesthesia and controlled ventilation in 42 children about to undergo thoracic surgery. The tests were obtained with a computerized system based on the Servo ventilator. The system made on-line corrections for compressed volume, apparatus deadspace, and rebreathing. Children with normal pulmonary circulation had excellent gas exchange with high PaO2 values, a mean alveolar deadspace fraction (VDalv/VTalv) of 0.10, and a gently… CONTINUE READING
