Hypoxemia due to inhalation of hypoxic gases has historically been a significant cause of preventable death or morbidity during anesthesia.

Conditions facilitating O2 unloading include acidosis, hypercapnia, hyperthermia, and high 2,3 DPG (hypoxia, anemia, and thyrotoxicosis2). Only a small fraction of the total oxygen content of blood is physically dissolved. 3 ml O2 /100 ml blood at a PaO2 of 100 mm Hg). 18 ml of O2 is delivered to tissues from solution by each 100 ml of blood compared to about 5 ml from Hb. With hyperbaric oxygen therapy, O2 is administered at three atmospheres resulting in a PaO2 of 2025 mm Hg. 075 ml/100ml of blood (see Figure 13-1).

The difference between the pause pressure and the peak airway pressure, normally 4 to 8 cm H2O, is higher with increased airway resistance, because the peak pressure increases without concomitant increase in the pause pressure. An inspiratory pause can be delivered by some anesthesia ventilators or can be delivered manually by occluding the expiratory tubing briefly at the beginning of exhalation. This manual method can only be used if the AP is measured at the y-piece. The expiratory flow rate (EFR) can also help to differentiate resistance from compliance problems.
