IMPLICATIONS: We investigated intrapulmonary oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange during moderate hypothermia (32 degrees C) in eight patients. If oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water vapor pressure were corrected to actual body temperature, the alveolar-arterial oxygen tension difference was increased during hypothermia. The carbon dioxide tension difference and the respiratory quotient were unaffected by hypothermia.
