Hypocapnia Measured by End-Tidal Carbon Dioxide Tension During Anesthesia Is Associated With Increased 30-Day Mortality Rate

Boogaerts, J. G., Dony, P., Dramaix, M.
(Abstracted from J Clin Anesth, 36:123–126, 2017) The negative effects of hypocapnia are well documented, including a decrease in cerebral blood and cognitive function, an increase in airway resistance and pulmonary cellular dysfunction, vasoconstriction and an increase in myocardial oxygen demand, hypercoagulopathy, and dysrhythmias. However, there has been no study documenting an association between hypocapnia during anesthesia and postoperative mortality.
