Abstract

Twenty patients were ventilated with continuous positive pressure breathing (CPPB) during anesthesia for surgical operations. paO2 changes varied widely. Arterial blood pressure (BP) fell slightly in most patients but markedly in a few. There was no correlation between changes in paO2 and BP. Caution is recommended when administering CPPB during anesthesia, and blood gases and BP should be monitored closely, especially in the elderly.
