Airway dead space is a functional surrogate of anatomic dead space and is calculated from Phase II of the C[O.sub.2] volume curve from a capnograph (10).
Anatomic dead space is air contained in the upper airway and the intrathoracic conducting airways that does not take part in gas exchange, and is approximately 2 ml/kg, or roughly 150 ml, in an average-sized adult (22).
Phase I is a flat, low C[O.sub.2] phase and corresponds to exhalation from the anatomic dead space. Phase II is a steeply rising phase and corresponds to the exhalation of mixed air.
