Popis Ventilatory efficiency (Math Eqe/Math Eqco2 slope [minute ventilation to carbon dioxide output slope]) has been shown to predict morbidity and mortality in lung resection candidates. Patients with increased Math Eqe/Math Eqco2 during exercise also exhibit an increased Math Eqe/Math Eqco2 ratio and a decreased end-tidal CO2 at rest. This study hypothesized that ventilatory values at rest predict respiratory complications and death in patients undergoing thoracic surgical procedures.
