Abstract

Objective: To optimize CO2 removal in a child with a single ventricle. Design: Case report. Setting: A ten-bed pediatric intensive care unit in a universityaffiliated hospital. Patient: A 6-yr-old boy with a single ventricle who underwent a Fontan procedure. Interventions: Addition of a membrane oxygenator to a venovenous hemodialysis circuit. Measurements: Patient respiratory variables were measured. Main Results: A clinically significant improvement in CO2 removalwas achieved. Conclusions: Addition of a membrane oxygenator to a dialysis circuit facilitates CO2 removal.
