PCO2


Also found in: Acronyms.

Pco2

Symbol for partial pressure (tension) of carbon dioxide. See: partial pressure.

pCO2

Symbol for the negative decadic logarithm of the CO2 concentration.

PCO2

Partial pressure of CO2 in blood, expressed in kilopascals

PCO2

, pCO2
Abbreviation for partial pressure (tension) of carbon dioxide.
See: partial pressure

PCO2

The concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood. This is a sensitive indication of the efficiency or level of ventilation of the lungs. Hyperventilation causes a drop in PCO2; underventilation causes a rise.

Their personal information such as gender, age, body weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), sNSE, pack-years, forced expiratory volume in 1second (FEV1), the potential of hydrogen (pH), PO2, PCO2 were collected.
Regarding the neonatal outcomes, the Apgar score at 5 minutes (p = 0.001), pO2 (p = 0.007), and umbilical cord arterial pH (p < 0.001) were lower, and pCO2 (p < 0.001) was higher in macrosomia group than in normal group.
As seen in Table 3, at six hours, PCO2 and HCO3 improved in patients using TFM, although there were no differences in VBG alterations between the two groups (P > 0.055).
Diagnostically, ischemic priapism will have a PO2 < 30 mmHg, PCO2 > 60 mmHg, and a pH < 7.25.
A corporal blood gas was taken, with the values consistent with a high-flow state: pCO2, 47 mmHg (normal = 32-43); pO2, 106 mmHg (normal = 83-108); pH 7.27 (normal = 7.37-7.44); and 98% 02 saturation.
The beauty of this method is that a linear relationship has been shown to exist between the minute ventilation (VE) and PCO2 changes of arterial blood and medillary chemoreceptor tissue.

Fe drier concentration has no impact on pore resistance; however, they did exhibit higher coating film pore resistance than the PCo2 and PCo3 samples.
Arterial gasometry showed systemic metabolic acidosis (pH, 7.08; pCO2 28; HCO3, 7.6; BE-27) with high anion gap and high osmolar gap (40 mEq/L).
