When venous oxygen saturation increases as a result of increased blood flow, changes in venous blood PCO2 and carbon dioxide content may differ because of the Haldane effect. The Haldane effect may also explain increases in gastric mucosal-arterial PCO2 gradient despite major increases in splanchnic blood flow. We re-analysed data from 22 patients after… CONTINUE READING
