Indd 47 6/16/10 6:37:40 AM 48 | CHAPTER 3 Physiologic Monitoring ■■ Gas Exchange The equations in this section express the relationships that exist during gas exchange in the steady state. They are based on the following two assumptions: 1. that there is no carbon dioxide in the inspired gas, and 2. that the net exchange of nitrogen is negligible because of its very low solubility. All fractional gas concentrations are calculated on a dry gas basis. Oxygen Uptake The rate at which oxygen is removed from alveolar gas by the blood.

Transpulmonary pressure is typically calculated using esophageal pressure as a surrogate for pleural pressure. 5 L taken as a standardized portion of the pressure–volume curve to report as representing lung compliance.
