Validation of an original mathematical model of CO(2) elimination and dead space ventilation.

UNLABELLED We present an original, mathematical model of ventilation and gas-exchange. Our aim was to validate it using data from previous clinical investigations, allowing our use of it in future investigations. The first previous investigation used a low-dead space, double-lumen, tracheal tube (DLT). We matched the model's PaCO(2) and airway pressures (P… CONTINUE READING
