Analysis and Monitoring of Gas Exchange

QuestionAnswer
Which of the following is false about invasive versus noninvasive monitoring? Laboratory analysis of gas exchange is usually noninvasive in nature.
If patient pain or anxiety occurs during arterial puncture, which of the following will probably occur? Hyperventilation
When conducting ABG analysis in the laboratory, obvious signs of preanalytical error include all of the following except: unmixed sample.
Which blood gas analyzer electrode uses a separate reference electrode? pH
What is a normal end-tidal PETCO2 range? 35 to 43 mm Hg
Continuous SpO2 monitoring (versus a spot check) is indicated in all of the following situations except. O2 therapy
During capnography monitoring of a mechanically ventilated patient, you note that the PETCO2 has dropped to 0 mm Hg. All of the following are possible causes of this finding except. Increased cardiac output
What is a normal level for CaO2? 18 to 20 ml/100 ml
Statistically derived limits for internal quality control of blood gas samples are usually set at what appropriate level? 2 standard deviations from the mean
Why is the radial artery the preferred site for arterial blood sampling? I. It is near the surface and easy to palpate and stabilize. II. The ulnar artery normally provides good collateral circulation. III. The radial artery is not near any large veins.
What is the greatest hazard of pulse oximetry? False results leading to incorrect decisions.
After obtaining an arterial blood sample, what should you do? I. Apply pressure to the puncture site until bleeding stops. II. Place the sample in a transport container with ice slush.IV. Mix the sample by rolling and inverting the syringe.
A mixed venous blood sample obtained from a pulmonary artery catheter sample has a PO2 of 85 mm Hg and a hemoglobin saturation of 95%. Which of the following is likely? I. The pulmonary artery catheter balloon was not deflated. III. The blood sample was withdrawn too quickly.
Treatment parameters that should be assessed as part of arterial blood sampling include all of the following except. Time of last incentive breathing exercise.
Under ideal conditions, pulse oximeter readings patients usually fall in what range of those obtained with invasive hemoximetry? 3% to 5%
What is the normal range for end-tidal CO2 as measured by capnography? 5% to 6%
An alert outpatient awaiting bronchoscopy has an SpO2 reading of 81% breathing room air. The patient appears in no distress and exhibits no signs of hypoxemia. Which of the following would be the best initial action to take in this situation? Switch sites or replace the sensor probe.
Possible complications of capillary blood gas sampling include all of the following except: hypotension.
How long should you wait before drawing an ABG on a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patient whose FIO2 has just been changed? 20 to 30 minutes
Warming a capillary bed to 42° C has which of the following effects? II. It increases blood flow well above tissue needs. III. It "arterializes" the capillary blood.
All of the following are common sites for transcutaneous blood gas electrode placement except the. Thigh
All of the following factors determine the volume needed for an arterial blood sample except. Site used for sampling
Factors contributing to imprecision (random) errors during blood gas analysis include all of the following except. Contaminated buffers
All of the following are advantages of mainstream capnometry except. No bulky sensor
The equipment necessary for capillary blood sampling includes all of the following except. 1-ml syringe
The advantage that point-of-care testing has over traditional laboratory testing is that point-of-care testing: reduces turnaround time.
Which of the following is FALSE about the galvanic fuel cell O2 analyzer? It requires an external power source (alternating current line or batteries).
Which of the following should be monitored during the sampling of arterial blood? II. Presence of pulsatile blood return. III. Presence of air bubbles or clots in sample. IV. Appearance of puncture site.
Precautions and/or possible complications of arterial puncture include which of the following? I. Arteriospasm II. Embolization III. Infection IV. Hemorrhage
A PaO2 below what value would be considered severe hypoxemia? 40 mm Hg
A practitioner forgets to ice an ABG sample and leaves it at room temperature for 45 minutes. Which of the following parameters can you predict will increase in this sample during that period? I only
You are asked to provide continuous monitoring of the FIO2 provided by a humidified O2 delivery system using a galvanic cell analyzer. Where would you install the analyzer's sensor? Proximal to the heated humidifier.
What is the process of testing a new blood gas analyzer to confirm a manufacturer's claims? Performance validation
Capillary puncture should NOT be performed at or through what location? I. Inflamed or edematous tissue II. Localized areas of infection III. The fingers of neonates IV. Previous puncture sites
To avoid the dilution effects caused by too much sodium heparin during ABG sampling of an adult, what should you do? I. Ensure a sample volume greater than 2 ml. II. Use dry heparin instead. III. Fill the needle dead space only.
An outpatient scheduled for an arterial blood sample enters the pulmonary lab 20 minutes late and out of breath, having run up four flights of stairs. What should you do? Wait 5 minutes before taking the sample.
Factors contributing to bias (systematic) errors during blood gas analysis include all of the following except. Statistical probability
Through which pulmonary artery catheter port would you obtain a mixed venous blood sample? Distal (catheter tip) port
What is the quality control procedure of analysis and reporting on externally provided control media with unknown values? Proficiency testing
Precautions and/or possible complications of arterial puncture include which of the following? I. Arteriospasm II. Embolization III. Infection IV. Hemorrhage
To validate patient readings obtained from a transcutaneous blood gas monitor, what should you do? Compare the monitor's readings to those obtained with a concurrent ABG sample.
Which of the following are TRUE about a blood gas analyzer's waste fluids? I. A strong disinfectant should be added to waste fluid containers. II. Waste fluids should be handled as if they were blood samples. III. Waste fluids should be treated as potentially infectious.
Which of the following is FALSE about transcutaneous blood gas monitoring? Transcutaneous blood gas monitoring is most accurate when used with older adults.
All of the following sites are used for arterial blood sampling by percutaneous needle puncture except: Carotid
Why is the radial artery the preferred site for arterial blood sampling? I. It is near the surface and easy to palpate and stabilize. II. The ulnar artery normally provides good collateral circulation. III. The radial artery is not near any large veins.
How often should blood gas calibration verification by control media take place? At least two levels of control media should be analyzed every 8 hours.
