prolonged hypercapnea in chronic lung disease


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Are there any studies looking at long term effects of hypercapnea in chronic lung disease ?

I am looking after a baby (corrected gestational age - term) who is beginning to cycle on CPAP. PCO2 remains around 16 - 19 kpa. However, pH is compensated around 7.31 to 7.32.
