Adduction during expiration is not obligatory, as tracheotomy bypasses the larynx with apparently no effect on alveolar gas exchange.
Mithoefer et al[9,10] reported that the breath-holding time is affected by the alveolar gas composition, including the partial pressure of inspired [O.sub.2] and hyperventilation.
At 15 seconds into the study, PC[O.sub.2] equilibrium has been established between the alveolar gas and the mixed venous blood.
Fi[O.sub.2] was calculated from the measured [F.sub.E]C[O.sub.2] and [F.sub.E][O.sub.2] by rearranging the alveolar gas equation (5) assuming that: [F.sub.E][O.sub.2] is equal to alveolar oxygen fraction ([F.sub.A][O.sub.2]), [F.sub.E]C[O.sub.2] is equivalent to alveolar carbon dioxide fraction ([F.sub.A]C[O.sub.2]) and the respiratory quotient (RQ) for each participant =0.8 (Figure 2).
