INTRODUCTION Continuous noninvasive monitoring of the partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2) in ventilated neonates would help clinicians to reduce arterial blood sampling. Our objective was to determine the correlation and agreement between end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) and PaCO2 in newborns ventilated for various clinical situations. METHODS This prospective study was undertaken over 15 months in a teaching hospital. Simultaneous end-tidal and arterial CO2 pairs were… CONTINUE READING
