The effect of assisted ventilation on arterial carbon dioxide.

Abstract

The effect on the arterial carbon dioxide tension of assisting spontaneously breathing patients under halothane anaesthesia has been studied. A reduction in PaCO2 is usually seen, but it was reduced below 40 torr in only 30 per cent of cases, while a rise was recorded in 20 per cent.
