SPONTANEOUS HYPOCAPNIA AFTER CARDIAC ARREST IS ASSOCIATED WITH 60-DAY MORTALITY

Background: Hypocapnia exposure after successful resuscitation from cardiac arrest has been previously demonstrated to be associated with poor clinical outcomes. During mechanical ventilation after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) it is unclear if spontaneous hyperventilation, as opposed high prescribed minute ventilation, is a common cause of hypocapnia. The objectives of this study were to determine the incidence of hypocapnia induced by spontaneous hyperventilation (spontaneous hypocapnia) among patients successfully resuscitated from cardiac arrest and to test...
