Abstract/OtherAbstract:
IMPLICATIONS: Circle circuit inspiratory valve leak will allow CO2-containing expirate to reverse flow into the inspiratory limb, with subsequent rebreathing during the next inspiration. This CO2 rebreathing causes imperceptible lengthening of the alveolar plateau of the capnogram and is detected only by using the CO2 spirogram (PCO2 versus volume).
