The protocol design allowed for collection of blood gas
samples within a 48-hour window of admission to the MICU.
Capillary blood gas
analysis can be used to estimate the pH and Pa[O.sub.2], but may not be of value for calculating pC[O.sub.2] or bicarbonate.
A question was raised in our institution as to whether or not an arterial blood gas
sample might see a change in partial pressure of either oxygen or carbon dioxide if the sample is placed into a pneumatic tube system with or without a bubble.
compared arterial blood gas
analysis with oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry in the assessment of acute asthma.
independently of storing blood gas
samples on ice or in the fridge, the Pa[O.sub.2] rose significantly at 30 min, 1 hr and at 2 hr.
The computerized blood gas
evaluation tool could be valuable to anyone who needs to quickly calculate A-a gradients or bicarbonate dosing.
Many of today's automated blood gas
(ABG) instruments now have internal onboard QC.
P102 = FIO2 (PB-47) = 0.21 (760-47 = 0.21 (713) = 149.7 PIO2 = partial pressure of inspired O2 FIO2 = fractional concentration of inspired O2 PB = barometric pressure 47 = partial pressure of water vapor If air bubbles are present in a blood gas
sample, equilibrium of gases between the sample and air occurs, but no matter how large the bubble or no matter how much mixing is done, the combined PO2 and PCO2 can not exceed 150 mmHg at sea level and at normal barometric pressure.
The common parameters included in arterial blood gas
The initial blood gas
drawn from the infant was actually venous gas, and did not reflect the child's true metabolic state.
Summary: Looking at the current market trends as well as the promising demand status of the "Blood Gas
and Electrolyte Analyzers Market", it can be projected that the future years will bring out positive outcomes.
