Cerebral venous PCO2 and hypoxic ventilatory decline

  • Cees N. Olievier


The measurement of the PCO2 has always been an important issue in the study of the control of the ventilation. In gas the PCO2 can easily be assessed with a capnograph, but in blood or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) it is more complicated. Mostly is this performed by taking samples and analyzing them in a gas analyzer, consisting of membrane covered electrodes.
