Effect of Corrective or Palliative Procedures on Arterial to End-tidal Carbon Dioxide Pressure Difference in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

DPCO2 decreased after corrective procedures; however, it did not return to normal values at early postoperative period, and may not have any clinical value in monitoring the quality of corrective or palliative procedures.



Good estimation of arterial carbon dioxide by end‐tidal carbon dioxide monitoring in the neonatal intensive care unit

PetCO2 was a valid and reliable method for monitoring PaCO2 in neonates, especially preterm infants and this method decreases blood loss and prevents complications associated with arterial catheters, and is recommend using mainstream capnography to monitor PetCO2 instead of measuring Pa CO2 in the NICU.

End-tidal carbon dioxide measurements in critically ill neonates: a comparison of side-stream and mainstream capnometers

It is concluded that both distal sidestream and mainstream capnometry provide accurate estimates of the PaCO2 in critically ill neonates.

Comparison of a sidestream and mainstream capnometer in infants.

Capnograms obtained from a sidestream and mainstream capnometer during rapid mechanical ventilation in infants are compared to show the mainstream analyzer gives a more accurate representation of the expired CO2 waveform in small children at rapid respiratory rates.

Technical and clinical aspects of capnography in neonates.

Capnometry with capnography is a potentially useful tool to arterial CO2 tension (PaCO2) monitor infants with normal lungs and the critical limitation of their overall accuracy in the presence of lung disease is discussed.

Monitoring of end tidal CO2 in neonatal intensive care.

The use of monitoring end tidal carbon dioxide pressure (PetCO2) in neonatal intensive care was studied in 19 infants with respiratory disease. PetCO2 correlated poorly with arterial pCO2, the

Mainstream end-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring in ventilated neonates.

The correlation between mainstream EtCO2 and PaCO2 is good and neonates with pulmonary disease will have a lower correlation, and Et CO2 monitoring is helpful in trending or screening for abnormal Pa CO2 values.

A Novel Method of Distal End-Tidal CO2 Capnography in Intubated Infants: Comparison With Arterial CO2 and With Proximal Mainstream End-Tidal CO2

Distal end-tidal CO2 measured via a double-lumen endotracheal tube was found to have good correlation and agreement with Paco2, remained reliable in conditions of severe lung disease, and was more accurate than the standard mainstream proximal end-ocean CO2.

Microstream Capnography Technology: A New Approach to an Old Problem

A new technology (Microstream™) is described, based on molecular correlation spectroscopy, which results in a highly efficient and selective emission of a spectrum of discrete wavelengths exactly matching those for CO2 absorption.
