1

Acid-Base Blood Gas Information

pH, PCO2, and HCO3

2

Oxygenation Information, oxyhemoglobin and pulse oximeter

PO2 and SO2, PaO2 and SaO2, a= arterial

3

blood gas

represents the acid/base status of entire body and provides information of lung function drawn on whole blood, venous or capillary blood; performed STAT

4

ABG

preferred sample for blood gas (radial, femoral or brachial)

5

air bubbles

causes increased PO2 and pH and decreased PCO2

6

clots

can not be run on instrumentation

7

glycolysis

causes decrease in pH and PO2 and increase in PCO2

8

temperature

effects pH; increase causes pH decrease

9

1 degree increase

causes 0.015 unit decrease in pH
