The arterial and mixed venous carbon dioxide tension gradient has been shown to increase when there is a decrease in cardiac output.
When the cardiac output is inadequate relative to the oxygen consumption and production of carbon dioxide in the peripheral tissue, the mixed venous oxygen saturation will decrease and the mixed venous carbon dioxide tension will increase(4,5).
Because the relationship between venous carbon dioxide tension gradient and cardiac index is likely to be curvilinear (i.
The experiment will include the use of Novametrix monitor which will provide a continuous assessment, non-invasively, of an astronaut's hemoglobin oxygen saturation and lung carbon dioxide tensions.
