Research program: Multi-parametric model for estimation of arterial CO2 tension via oxygenator exhaust capnometry in extracorporeal lung support devices

Capnometry is the measurement of carbon dioxide concentration in respiratory gases. Even if the traditional use of capnometry is related to respiratory monitoring field, the use of this measurement in extracorporeal blood circulation devices for cardiopulmonary bypass has been proved. In particular, a capnometer can be placed in the exhaust port of an extracorporeal oxygenator [...]
