Sample text

May occur with intracranial pathology, dementia, metabolic disturbances, alcoholism and psychological disturbances. May be caused by head injury and drugs. Patients who recover from critical illness may have poor recall of events afterwards. Retrograde amnesia (between the causative agent/ event and the last memory beforehand) is common after head injury. Anterograde amnesia (loss of memory for the period following the causative agent/event) may occur after head injury, and is common after admini­ stration of certain drugs, typically benzodiazepines and hyoscine.

Technique used in patients receiving IPPV, aiming to recruit collapsed alveoli. Typically, CPAP of 30–40 cmH2O is applied for 20–40 s; alternatively, three ‘sighing’ breaths at a pressure of 45 cmH2O may be given. May result in improved oxygenation, although evidence of outcome benefit in patients with acute lung injury is inconsistent. May result in reduced cardiac output and hypotension due to reduced venous return. Alveolar ventilation. 5 l/min. Equals (tidal volume minus dead space) × respiratory rate; thus rapid small breaths result in a much smaller alveolar ventilation than slow deep breaths, even though minute ventilation remains constant.

Alveolar PO2 is estimated using the alveolar air equation; arterial PO2 is measured directly. 0 kPa (30 mmHg) in the elderly. e. normally up to 15 kPa (115 mmHg) breathing 100% O2. Alveolar gases. Normal alveolar gas partial pressures and intravascular gas tensions are shown in Table 5. g. during anaesthesia. See also, End-tidal gas sampling Alveolar gas transfer. Depends on: ◗ alveolar ventilation. 5 µm). ◗ solubility of gases in blood. ◗ cardiac output. g. CO2, and anaesthetic vapours during recovery, the same factors apply.
