CO2 breathing of children

Abstract

In 20 co operative paediatric patients without cardiopulmonary disease, 2 and 4% CO2 in air was given to breathe and the ventilatory response as well as end tidal CO2 were recorded. A rise of ventilation concomitant with a rise in alveolar CO2 was seen in most cases. The amount of ventilatory responses was less that previously reported with tube rebreathing for any given rise in alveolar Paco2. It appears therefore, that in addition to the absolute level of Paco2, the mode of presentation of the CO2 signal to chemosensitive areas also serves as an important determinant for the amount of the ventilatory response.
