Continuous Measurement of Pulmonary Gas Exchange During Mechanical Ventilation
to give accurate values of oxygen uptake (̇VO2) and carbon dioxide output (̇VCO2) over a long time (at least 24 h);
to be easy to use by the physicians in intensive care units, without interfering with routine nursing care or ventilatory management;
to be able to reject the artifacted respiratory cycles which are frequently observed in ventilated patients, due to cough efforts or tracheal aspirations by the nursing staff.
