Hypercapnia (increase in PaCO2) is the key feature of ventilatory failure. When carbon dioxide production exceeds its removal, respiratory acidosis results. Hypoxemia can be the secondary complication of ventilatory failure. In general, hypoxemia due to hypoventilation responds well to ventilation and low concentration of supplemental oxygen. Without supplemental oxygen, the degree of hypoxemia corresponds to the severity of ventilatory failure. Table 1-5 lists five mechanisms leading to the development of ventilatory failure.
Over time, the respiratory muscles fatigue, resulting in ventilatory failure. This is usually followed by oxygenation failure if ventilatory interventions are unsuccessful (Rochester, 1993). Since intrapulmonary shunting is a result of lack of adequate ventilation due to collapsed or fluid-filled lung units, positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) may be used to open up and ventilate these lung units. Chapter 4 describes the use of PEEP or CPAP in the management of intrapulmonary shunting during mechanical ventilation (PEEP) or spontaneous breathing (CPAP).
Minute alveolar ventilation (VA) is a function of the tidal volume, deadspace volume, and respiratory frequency per minute. Hypoventilation can result when the frequency is too slow or absent (apnea). Hypoventilation due to a reduction in spontaneous frequency can be compensated by increasing the frequency (assist or SIMV) on the ventilator. A patient’s ventilatory status can best be monitored by the PaCO2 measurement. # The equation below shows the inverse relationship between VA and PaCO2. When the minute alveolar ventilation is low (hypoventilation), an elevated PaCO2 is the typical finding in blood gas analysis.
