Moreover, the dead space may be decreased in pregnancy because of increased cardiac output and better perfusion in the apices, so the ratio of dead space volume to the tidal volume becomes even more advantageous.
2 This mode uses a constant flow to deliver tidal volume but can result in higher airway pressures especially during laparoscopic procedures due to pneumoperitoneum.
It is a mode of ventilation controlled by tidal volume and respiratory frequency as constant parameters, with variable inspiratory pressures.
Tidal volume, airway compliance, and pulmonary vein oxygen partial pressure (PaO[sub]2) were measured during the perfusion.
