Tutorial: Pulmonary Function--Dr. Bhutani Clinical Case 695 g male neonate with RDS, treated with surfactant and on ventilatory support @ 18 hours age: Settings: 18 / 5 cm H 2 0 x 45 breaths / min; FiO 2 = 0.65 Driving Pressure: 18-5 = 13 cm H 2 0 Arterial Gas: pH = 7.3; PaO 2 = 74 ; PaCO 2 = 55 mmHg Is this baby a candidate for permissive hypercapnia?

Normocapnia varies? Maternal : 32 - 34 mmHg (progesterone effect) Fetal: 40 - 42 mmHg At birthing: 45 - 65 mmHg First day : 34 mmHg (progesterone effect) After first week : 35 - 42 mmHg Term PCA: 35 - 42 mmHg (RR = 40-60/min) 52 wks PCA: 35 - 42 mmHg (RR = 20-30/min)

Strategies to Prevent Non-Permissive Hypercapnia Define optimum P a CO 2 levels Level to at which you will intervene Level to at which you will wean Ventilate at optimal FRC Continuous monitoring of tidal volume Use least pressure for maximal tidal volume Facilitate spontaneous breathing Consider “dual wean” of driving pressures Consider pseudo-adaptive strategies

Alveolar Algebra: Ventilation Alveolar Ventilation inversely correlated to PaCO 2 Alveolar Ventilation is (V T -V D ) x rate Provided dead space is constant: proportional changes in V T or rate will lead to proportional changes in alveolar ventilation and PaCO 2. Based on Pulmonary Gas Law: in a steady state, when inspired CO2 is negligible, then PACO2 = 863 (VCO2 / VA); where, VCO2 is CO2 production; PACO2 is partial pressure of carbon dioxide; 863 is body temp. x std. pressure / standard temperature ( 310 X 760/273 = 863 )

Clinical Case 695 g male neonate with RDS, treated with surfactant and on ventilatory support and is now about 18 hours age and has stable vital signs, normotensive and is normoglycemic: Settings: PIP:18 cm H 2 0; PEEP: 5 cm H 2 0; SIMV: 45 br / min; Arterial Gas: pH = 7.3; PaO 2 = 74 ; PaCO 2 = 55 mmHg Is the Alveolar Ventilation compromised? If so, by how much?

Circuit Airflow Airflow that is set, at operator’s discretion, to flow from inspiratory to expiratory circuits. Magnitude dependent on patient’s minute ventilation Excessive circuit airflow can lead to turbulence and may impede expiratory flow from the patient Low flow may limit inspiratory airflow Optimal circuit flow is about 5 to 8 fold minute ventilation

Clinical Case PaCO 2 = 55 torr at 18/5: IATROGENIC HYPERCAPNIA secondary to ventilation at “flattened” portion of the P-V relationship After Dual Wean, PaCO 2 will be lowered provided ventilation is occurring closer to total lung capacity. Subsequent weaning to 14/4 may result in a PaCO 2 = 55 torr PERMISSIVE HYPERCAPNIA
