The partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood; arterial oxygen concentration, or tension; usually expressed in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).

In the present study, decreased arterial oxygen pressure (PaO2), increased venous carbon dioxide pressure (PvCO2), decreased blood pH and bicarbonates were noted in calves suffering from neonatal diarrhea.
33, partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2): 54.4 mmHg, partial pressure of arterial oxygen (PaO2): 30.6 mmHg, HCO3: 28.3 mmol/L, and oxygen saturation was 74%.
True (A) or false (B)--fill in only block A or B: The PaO2 at sea level should not be below 70 mmHg if the patient is not to become dyspnoeic during a flight.
Much of the fatigue symptoms in COPD patients may be partly due to disturbed sleep due to alveolar hypoventilation and resulting hypoxemia with REM PaO2 levels being reported in some COPD patients at 20 mmHg.
In a healthy individual, as the pressure of oxygen in the alveoli of the lungs rises or falls, the pressure of oxygen in the blood (PaO2) will follow.
Las respuestas fisiologicas que ocurren en crustaceos expuestos agudamente al cobre entre el rango de 0,1 a 10 mg de cobre son: permeabilidad aparente del agua (AWP), actividad cardiaca (CA), actividad enzimatica (AZY), concentracion de hemocianina (HCY), consumo de oxigeno (M02), Presion parcial arterial de oxigeno (PaO2), tasa ventilacion/perfusion (V/Q, mientras que una exposicion cronica a dosis menores de 0,1 [mg.l.sup.-1] de cobre produce ultraestructuracion de branquias yestres proteico (Helbel et al., 1997 in Lara, 2003).

There is a method of estimating what this means in terms of how much oxygen pressure (PaO2) is in the blood.
Patients with pneumonia, pneumothorax and other comorbidities were excluded from the study because patients with concomitant conditions respond differently to treatment and have higher mortality rates compared to patients with only AECOPD.1,15 The current study also identified two individual variables with statistical significance in predicting in-hospital mortality, namely oxygen saturation and Partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2).
The level of arterial partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) was detected to grade hypoxia; the level of PaO2 < 7.69 kPa was determined as mild hypoxia, the level of PaO2 between 5.29 kPa and 7.69 kPa was determined as moderate hypoxia, and the level of PaO2 < 5.29 kPa was determined as severe hypoxia.
The indications for putting a baby on mechanical ventilation included gasping or poor respiratory effort, oxygen saturation of less than 88% despite supplemental oxygen through non invasive techniques, recurrent episodes of apnea and findings on capillary blood gases consistent with type 2 respiratory failure (PaO2 less than 50 mmHg along with a PaCO2 levels of more than 60 mmHg).
