abstract

  • We used indirect calorimetry to measure oxygen consumption (VO2) and carbon dioxide production in 29 mechanically ventilated patients. These data were compared to VO2 measured simultaneously by a standard thermodilution technique. A good correlation was demonstrated between the methods, but VO2 measured by indirect calorimetry was 15% higher than VO2 measured by thermodilution.
