Proper precautions need to be taken during hypotensive anaesthesia like protection of pressure points by padding, monitoring of ECG especially V5 lead with ST segment analysis to detect cardiac ischaemia, maintaining normocapnia, avoidance of hypothermia as it decreases the effectiveness of vasodilators, maintaining adequate perfusion to all vital organs.
Akin to human infants, a very high level of plasma copeptin (a part of pro-AVP) is seen following asphyxia but, notably, the copeptin levels remain low with graded restoration of normocapnia.
Tracheal intubation was done, and mechanical ventilation using air and oxygen was started to maintain normocapnia.
Ventilation rate and tidal volume were adjusted to maintain normocapnia (35–45 mmHg, 1 mmHg = 0.
5 mg intravenous and put on the ventilator in pressure mode to maintain normocapnia.
Lungs were ventilated with an air-oxygen mixture, and normocapnia was maintained.
Relative normocapnia or slight hypocapnia consistent with the safe conduct of positive pressure ventilation should be maintained unless intracranial pressure is a concern.
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.
