*Permissive hypercapnia is a ventilation strategy in which oxygenation is prioritized over expired carbon dioxide. Higher than normal carbon dioxide levels are allowed because of low ventilation that preserves the lungs.
AV = atrioventricular, BOAS = brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome, CO = cardiac output, HR = heart rate, IPPV = intermittent positive pressure ventilation, MABP = mean arterial blood pressure, PEEP = positive end-expiratory pressure, SIRS = systemic inflammatory response syndrome, SV = stroke volume, SVR = systemic vascular resistance
