4(16 %) patients of A group developed shortness of breath, anxiety, hypercapnia 46.7 mm of Hg(mean) and desaturation of 91%, they were managed by increase oxygenation, ask the patient to deep breath,, rescue fentanyl 50 mcg.
Results of the study regarding the anti-hypoxic properties of SBDE in normobaric hypoxic hypoxia with hypercapnia model demonstrated an increased life expectancy of the mice of 1.3 times compared with the controls (Table 3), indicating a distinct anti-hypoxic effect of the drug.
We also compared the efficacy of auscultation for confirmation of DLT position.The outcomes studied were insertion time, the frequency of DLT malposition (as seen by bronchoscopy), tube migration after positioning, intra-operative hypoxia and hypercapnia.
Extensive subcutaneous emphysema and hypercapnia during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: Two case reports.
Cerebral pial artery responses to hypercapnia and hypotension were obtained before ischemia and 1 h after ischemia as previously described (10).
Consequently, chronic intermittent hypoxia or hypercapnia (chronic intermittent hypopnea or hypercapnia, CIHH) occurs, or even acidosis.
However, the main limitations of this technique are inability to humidify and heat gases, carbon dioxide accumulation resulting in excessive hypercapnia, oxygen atelectasis, patient discomfort, and mucosal desiccation.
Central hypoventilation syndrome (CHS) is characterized by the disruption of integration signals in ventilatory control system resulting in hypoventilation, hypoxemia, and hypercapnia. The congenital form of CHS is linked to genes involved in the neuronal development of autonomic nervous system [1].
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by recurrent upper airway obstruction during sleep and presents as oxygen desaturation, hypercapnia, and sleep fragmentation, which occurs because of complete or partial upper airway obstruction [1].
[14-16] Hypothyroidism is associated with diminished ventilatory drive for both hypoxia and hypercapnia. [17,18] Supporting studies shown no change between the treated hypothyroid group and euthyroid group, explain that hormonal therapy can reverse the respiratory changes.
