Abstract: Measurement of oxygen uptake by indirect calorimetry was compared with the reverse Fick method in a series of patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Oxygen uptake measurements for indirect calorimetry were made using a calibrated measurement system utilizing the Haldane transformation in a simple semiclosed breathing system based upon a modified Bain circuit. Pulmonary blood flow for the reverse Fick method was measured using bolus thermodilution. The results were (mean [standard deviation]): indirect calorimetry 167[26] ml.min(-1), and reverse Fick 148[27] ml.min(-1). Indirect calorimetry overestimated the reverse Fick value by 11.3% (p < 0.001). These results are consistent with the findings of previous studies in similar patient groups and are explained by lung tissue oxygen consumption.
