In order to standardize the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and simultaneous monitoring certain mechanical or physiological parameters are considered.12Discovery of positive relationship between the cardiac output and end-tidal carbondioxide pressure (PetCO2) has led to use of capnography during cardiopulmonary resuscitation.34 During cardiac arrest the partial pressure of end-tidal carbon dioxide falls to very low levels reflecting the very low cardiac output achieved with cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
A significant increase in the mean corrected blood flow velocity (at PETCo2 = 40 mmHg) of the BA was observed after ST36 acupuncture treatment.
With the ventilatory equivalent, the AT is defined as the VO2 at which VE/VO2 and Pulmonary end-tidal O2 (PetO2) reach a minimum and thereafter begin to rise consistently, coinciding with an unchanged VE/VCO2 and Pulmonary end-tidal CO2 (PetCO2).
