PDF | An elevated physiological dead space, calculated from measurements of arterial CO2 and mixed expired CO2, has proven to be a useful. BACKGROUND: Anatomic dead space (also called airway or tracheal dead space) is dead space equals the exhaled volume up to the point when CO2 rises. Dead space of the respiratory system refers to the space in which oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) gasses are not exchanged across the.
Why clinicians are slow to implement advances in diagnosis and treatment from well-designed clinical trials is a continuously debated question in critical care. For instance, prone positioning significantly improves mortality in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS , but the usefulness of recruitment measures in this population is still under debate. Nevertheless, a recent observational study in intensive care units in 50 countries found that prone positioning was used in only Similarly, despite the established usefulness of measuring physiologic variables such as dead space in mechanically ventilated ARDS patients, this practice is not widely employed. Dead space refers to lung areas that are ventilated but not perfused.
Nuckton et al.
Other groups found similar results in early and intermediate phases of ARDS [ 6 ] and in patients with ARDS according to the Berlin definition undergoing lung-protective ventilation [ 7 ]. Finally, Siddiki et al. Other studies, however, found no effect [ 13 ].

This discrepancy could occur due to the different effect of PEEP in patients with various degrees of lung injury or, in positive PEEP responders, the reduction in alveolar dead space compensated for the concurrent increase in airway dead space [ 13 , 14 ]. Experimental studies clearly suggest that dead-space variables, in particular the ratio of alveolar dead space to VT and the gradient between arterial and end-tidal CO 2 , might become a useful bedside tool for implementing a lung protective ventilation strategy in the context of recruitment and a PEEP titration procedure [ 14 ].
In the clinical setting, variations in PaCO 2 in conditions of unchanged CO 2 production, respiratory rate, and VT might be a surrogate of variations in dead space.
Gattinoni et al. By contrast, in patients who do not respond to recruitment maneuvers, decreased alveolar ventilation and increased PaCO 2 probably reflect a worsening of lung injury. In summary, volumetric capnography could provide powerful breath-by-breath physiologic information about the efficiency of alveolar ventilation and perfusion in patients with ARDS.
Improved efficiency of alveolar ventilation is an important marker of patients who will survive ARDS, and can be determined at the bedside by a decreased ratio between physiologic or alveolar dead space and VT.

Alveolar dead space typically is negligible in a healthy individual. At the end of expiration, the dead volume consists of a gas mixture high in CO2 and low in O2 compared to ambient air. Furthermore, capnography can be used for periodic monitoring of thrombolysis treatment in pulmonary embolism by trending changes in dead space measurements.
Clearance of the anatomic dead space is believed to play a significant role in the use of nasal high flow cannulas. To access free multiple choice questions on this topic, click here.

Inspired air is raised or lowered to body temperature, increasing the affinity of hemoglobin for O2 and improving O2 uptake. Particulate matter is trapped in the mucus that lines the conducting airways, allowing it to be removed by mucociliary transport.

Dead space in acute respiratory distress syndrome: more than a feeling!
End-expiratory dead volume: Respiratory Cycle: Inhalation leads to increases in bronchial diameter and length, effectively increasing the anatomic dead space. Likewise, exhalation decreases the amount of anatomic dead space by "deflating" the bronchial tree. Dead space decreases with the supine position and increases during a sitting position. Variation also can occur in patients with maxillary defects or those who have undergone maxillectomy procedures.
These patients have an increased anatomic dead space due to communication between the nasal and oral cavities, which can ultimately affect respiratory function. Clinical Significance Dead space can be affected by various clinical scenarios: Lung Disease: However, it is poorly understood if these portions of the lung are ventilated sufficiently to be considered dead space. Mechanical Ventilation: Tubing from the ventilator increases dead space volume by adding volume to the effective space not participating in a gas exchange.
