In their recent paper [1], Dexter et al. demonstrated that low-pressure (7 mmHg) capnoperitoneum was associated with less depression of cardiac output. They hypothesized that the difference lay in reduced vena caval compression. However, there is an alternative explanation. The authors avoided hypercarbia and its attendant effects on cardiac performance by adjusting minute ventilation to a constant end-tidal carbon dioxide (CO2) level. It has been shown that capnoperitoneum at 8 mmHg increases… CONTINUE READING
