Abstract

Objective: Depending on the increase in inspired fractionated nitric oxide fraction (FiN2O), cuff pressures in intubated patients are increased with diffusion into endotracheal cuff during low-flow anesthesia (LFA) with nitrous oxide (N2O). We compared pressures of air- and saline-inflated endotracheal tube cuffs during LFA with N2O in our study.
