Capnography and Circulation
An in-depth discussion of the interrelations between haemodynamics and capnography is not possible without mentioning the numerous factors that affect capnographic waves. An incomplete knowledge of these factors might induce us to attribute to haemodynamic variations the capnographic changes related to other events, thereby leading to erroneous interpretations and treatments.
