Before we dive into the analysis of blood gas values, it's important to take a few moments to review some of the basics of gases in a mixture. In this video from our Blood Gas Analysis Essentials course, we'll take a deep dive in fractional concentration of gases and how to calculate this important value.
Master arterial blood gas analysis based on an understanding of relevant physiologic principles. You’ll cover crucial factors that determine oxygenation of blood in the lungs, and oxygen transport and delivery to peripheral tissues. Learn about the interplay between blood gas and acid-base analysis and how carbon dioxide affects arterial pH. This course complements our Acid-Base Essentials course.
