Abstract

A method is presented to estimate parameters describing ICU patients’ ventilatory, circulatory, and metabolic state from simultaneous solution of models of O2 and CO2 transport. This method is shown to provide a consistent and reasonable picture of data from 5 ICU patients even without a pulmonary arterial catheter.
