Abstract
Respiratory motion artifact in intubated and mechanically ventilated patients often reduces the quality of helical computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA). Apneic oxygenation is a well established intra-operative technique that allows adequate oxygenation for short periods (up to 10 min) in sedated and paralyzed patients. We describe the use of the apneic oxygenation for elimination of respiratory motion artefact in an intubated patient undergoing CTPA.
