Percutaneous extracorporeal arteriovenous carbon dioxide removal improves survival in respiratory distress syndrome: a prospective randomized outcomes study in adult sheep.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Arteriovenous carbon dioxide removal (AVCO(2)R) uses a simple arteriovenous shunt for CO(2) removal to minimize barotrauma/volutrauma from mechanical ventilation. We performed a prospective randomized outcomes study of AVCO(2)R in our new, clinically relevant model of respiratory distress syndrome. METHODS Adult sheep (n = 18) received an LD(50… (More)
