Indications for hyperventilation (PaCO2 30 to 35 mmHg)1 The cerebral blood vessels constrict when the arterial CO2 is lowered, leading to decreased cerebral blood volume in the cranium, lowering ICP. After intubation, ventilate with tidal volume of 8 ml per kg, 10 breaths per minute, 100% oxygen. Arterial blood gases should be measured after 15 minutes of initiating mechanical ventilation, and the PaCO2 should be maintained between 35 to 40 mmHg. With transtentorial herniation or progressive neurological deterioration, the minute ventilation should be adjusted to maintain PaCO2 at between 30 to 35 mmHg.
