End-Tidal CO2 Levels vs. Arterial CO2 Levels in Children with TBI

2019 23 Aug

For patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), the partial pressure of CO 2 , arterial (PaCO 2 ) can be adjusted to help with the regulation of cerebral perfusion. However, this can prove difficult to carry out in children. The non-invasive method of capnography measures end-tidal CO 2 (EtCO 2 ) and is often used for paediatric patients as an alternative...
