PaCO2

Paco2

Partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the arterial blood; arterial carbon dioxide concentration or tension. It is usually expressed in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).

PaCO,

n partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the blood. Critical in regulating breathing levels and maintaining body pH.

Paco2

symbol for partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the arterial blood. See also blood gas analysis.

Maniobras que influencian la PIC como PaCO2 o manitol, tienen poco efecto sobre la PIE y PPM; sin embargo, los inotropicos por efecto sobre la PAM si han demostrado un aumento neto en la PPM (2).
The authors also noted that "the data used in this study were only collected in situations of stable and normal respiration under general anesthesia," and "that the limitations affecting the prediction of the PaCO2 values are in accordance with the condition of the patient.
Se debe aclara que no reemplaza la gasometria y se diferencia de ella por ser tecnica invasiva y dolorosa, dando lugar a hiperventilacion, lo que puede llevar a error; la pulsioximetria no informa sobre el pH ni la PaCO2.
There are many causes of respiratory acidosis, for example: depression of the central nervous system by drugs, airway obstructions, laryngospasm and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), all of which will cause an increase in PaCO2.
