    Background: Exercise intolerance (EI) in systemic sclerosis (SSc) is difficult to manage by the clinician. The peripheral chemoreflex drive compensates for metabolic acidosis during exercise and may be related to EI.Aim: To assess the global peripheral chemoreflex drive (GPCD) in patients with...

    Background Mixed venous partial pressure of carbon dioxide has often been estimated in anaesthesia, usually by rebreathing techniques. This assumes equilibrium between respired gas and mixed venous blood before significant recirculation can occur, and requires vigorous rebreathing and precise...

    Cardiac output (Q) is a primary determinant of blood pressure and O2 delivery and is critical in the maintenance of homeostasis, particularly during environmental stress. Cardiac output can be determined invasively in patients; however, indirect methods are required for other situations. Soluble...
