PURPOSE OF REVIEW Volumetric capnography (VCap) measures the kinetics of carbon dioxide (CO2) elimination on a breath-by-breath basis. A volumetric capnogram contains extensive physiological information about metabolic production, circulatory transport and CO2 elimination within the lungs. VCap is also the best clinical tool to measure dead spaces allowing a detailed analysis of the functional components of each tidal volume, thereby providing clinically useful hints about the lung's efficiency… CONTINUE READING
