The determination of minute oxygen consumption (VO2) for metabolic studies on patients using either the Beckman Metabolic Cart (MMC) or the Respiratory Monitoring System (RMS) requires a stable fractional inspired oxygen concentration (FIO2). Measurement of VO2 on mechanically ventilated patients using the Bourns BEAR 1 and the Engstrom 311 and 312 was unsuccessful due to FIO2 variations greater than the acceptable limits. The inspiratory and expiratory O2 and CO2 waveforms were studied using… CONTINUE READING
