OBJECTIVES : To compare the agreement, precision and repeatability of end tidal carbon dioxide () and transcutaneous carbon dioxide () with partial pressure of arterial CO(2) () in postoperative neonates. PATIENTS: Fifty mechanically ventilated neonates without lung disease, and with no contraindications for either or monitoring. INTERVENTIONS: Paired and values were recorded with three consecutive measurements within the first 48 h of surgery. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: , and triplets were compared using Bland-Altman plots. RESULTS: One hundred thirty-two triplet measures of CO(2) were recorded with mean 43.5 (7.3) mm Hg, 38.8 (6.4) mm Hg and 43.8 (8.8) mm Hg (p<0.0001 for against ; paired t test). The - bias±2SD was 4.1±9.0 mm Hg and -0.8±13.0 mm Hg for -. 56.1% of , and 60.6% of values were within ±5 mm Hg of paired . CONCLUSIONS: In postoperative neonates, and demonstrated a clinically acceptable agreement with .
