In conclusion, variations in body temperature significantly affect the results of important and frequently used monitoring techniques in intensive care, anesthesia, and emergency medicine. The knowledge of physical and technical changes during hypothermia or hyperthermia is necessary to avoid pitfalls in monitoring of blood gases, SO2, and etCO2. Ignoring these effects may lead to harmful and incorrect conclusions derived from our measurements in the clinical setting as well as for scientific purposes.

Conceptually, as suggested by Riley and V˙A/Q Cournand [4], alveolar gas exchange can be simplified to occurring within three types of alveoli: those with ˙ (ideal), those with no Q ˙ (dead space), and matched V˙A/Q those with no V˙A (shunt). This “three-compartment” simplification is attractive because it allows one to quantify gas exchange abnormalities by the proportion of gas exchange units in each compartment. Although “ideal” alveolar zones contribute to minimizing alveolar-to-arterial differences, blood from shunt perfusion zones joins blood coming from alveolar regions with gas values identical to mixed venous ones, thus increasing both alveolar-to-arterial O2 differences and arterial CO2 levels.
