Table 1 Ventilatory settings during baseline and for hyperventilation and hypoventilation

From: Is venous blood a more reliable description of acid-base state following simulated hypo- and hyperventilation?

Parameters Baseline Hyperventilation Hypoventilation
Tidal volume (VT) 6 ml/kg 8 ml/kg 6 ml/kg
Respiratory Rate (RR) 15 bpm 20 bpm 6 bpm
PEEP 5 cmH2O 5 cmH2O 5 cmH2O
Criteria for termination   EtCO2 < 1.5 kPa sPO2 < 88%
EtCO2 > 6.5 kPa
