Anaesthesiologists have traditionally been consulted to help design breathing circuits to attain and maintain target end-tidal carbon dioxide (P(ET)CO2). The methodology has recently been simplified by breathing circuits that sequentially deliver fresh gas (not containing carbon dioxide (CO2)) and reserve gas (containing CO2). Our aim was to determine the roles of fresh gas flow, reserve gas PCO2 and minute ventilation in the determination of P(ET)CO2. We first used a computer model of a non… CONTINUE READING
