Oxygenator exhaust capnography for prediction of arterial carbon dioxide tension during hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass.

Abstract

Continuous monitoring and control of arterial carbon dioxide tension (P(a)CO2) during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is essential. A reliable, accurate, and inexpensive system is not currently available. This study was undertaken to assess whether the continuous monitoring of oxygenator exhaust carbon dioxide tension (PexCO2) can be used to reflect P(a)CO2… (More)
