, catheterization and extraction of 0.05 mL of blood from the left ventricle for basal gas analysis with I-Stat[R] (Abbot Laboratories, USA) were performed.
Own breath sensor allows not only for novel applications of traditional breath analysis technologies (including flow measurement and gasometry
), but also breath-based emotions detection, and affective computing (automated emotion recognition and shaping) applied using own pulmonary biofeedback system .
was satisfactory with the partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood of 94 mmHg, an oxygen saturation of 97.7% with the disappearance of cyanosis and dyspnea.
Respiratory efficiency was monitored using standard gasometry
. The patients with abnormal gasometric readings were excluded from the studied group.
and electrolyte values (pH, HC[O.sub.3-], BEecf, AnGap, Na, K, and Cl) were within the reference interval for rabbits by Ardiaca et al.

showed systemic metabolic acidosis (pH, 7.08; pCO2 28; HCO3, 7.6; BE-27) with high anion gap and high osmolar gap (40 mEq/L).

: pH, partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2), partial pressure of oxygen (pO2), bicarbonate ion (HCO3), total carbon dioxide (CO2Total), base excess (ExBase), oxygen saturation (SatO2), sodium ion (Na), potassium (K) ion and lactate, measured on different moments [before preanesthetic medication (M0), immediately prior to pneumothorax induction (M1), after introducing the trocar (M3) and after draining the cavity and restoring negative pressure (M5)] in the transdiaphragmatic paraxiphoid (GI) and cervical (GII) thoracoscopies.
During the PICU stay, patients were assessed for prognostic factors of worse evolution on MPV by calculating the ventilation index (VI = peak inspiratory pressure x mechanical respiratory rate/1000) and partial oxygen pressure/fraction of inspired oxygen (Pa[O.sub.2]/FI[O.sub.2]), and by examining the worse gasometry
value of the first day of MPV.
It is with some hesitation that we include the technique of gasometry
into this list of important breakthroughs in technology.
