Lungs were ventilated with an air-oxygen mixture, and normocapnia was maintained.
2010) observed a significant increase of osmotic capacity in Palaemon elegans and Palaemon serratus exposed to hypercapnia after 14 days, but after 30 days values were similar to normocapnia.
Depending on the stage, arterial blood gas data range from hypoxemia and normocapnia in mild chronic bronchitis to worsened hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and acidemia in the severe form.
2] monitor had a higher incidence of normocapnia than those in situations where the anesthetist was blinded.
Randomised controlled trial of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) for nocturnal hypoventilation in neuromuscular and chest wall disease patients with daytime normocapnia.
A return to normocapnia will then result in an increase in ICP.
Towards the goal of developing enhanced neurophysiological monitoring techniques used in the intensive care management of patients with head-injury, parametric model estimation using an autoregressive moving average model and a recently proposed method to extract an index of intracranial compliance from the intracranial pressure recording were employed to characterize differences in cerebrovascular state induced by normocapnia and hypercapnia.
Recommendations on carbon dioxide levels for the brain-injured patient are to maintain normocapnia between 35 and 40 mm Hg.
The ICU protocol aimed to maintain adequate sedation, normocapnia (30 to 40 mmHg), normglycaemia (6 to 8 mmol/l), serum sodium between 145 and 150 mmol/l, euvolaemia (central venous pressure between 10 to 15 mmHg and a neutral daily fluid balance) and a cerebral perfusion pressure greater than 60 mmHg for all patients who were at risk of intracranial hypertension.
2 Ensure adequate oxygenation and if ventilated, ensure normocapnia and normoxia.
