What would you look at if you wanted to determine the oxygenation status of a patient? Pao2
An increase in CO2 cause the PH levels to become? Acidic
An increase in HCO3 is Alkalotic
Patient comes in with a PH of 7.52 a PaCo2 of 25 a HCO3 of 25 and a BE +1. What would be your interpretation of this blood gas? Respiratory Alkalosis
patient has a PH of 7.10 Co2 of 20 HCO3 of 10 and BE of -20 what is your interpretation of this blood gas? Metabolic Acidosis
What do you look at in a blood gas to determine ventilation? PaCo2
What is the normal range for B.E.? -2-(+2)
What is the normal HCO3 value? 24
You would add ____ or _____ to improve oxygenation? O2 or PEEP
True or False: A blood gas would be considered normal if the BE was NOT within the normal limits False. Everything must be within normal limits for the blood gas to be considered normal
You get a blood gas and the values are PH 7.28 CO2 is 48 HCO3 is 32 and BE is +10 what would you assess the problem to be? ( include whether is is fully compensated or partially). Partially Compensated Respiratory Acidosis
You get a PH and the ABG reads PH is 7.44 CO2 is 26 HCO3 is 23 and BE is -1 what would you assess the problem is? (include whether it is compensated or uncompensated) uncompensated respiratory alkalosis
If you get a gas and the PH is within normal range and CO2 and HCO3 are moving in the same direction then how would u first classify the gas? Fully compensated
If you get a ABG and it reads PH is 7.56 co2 is 42 HCO3 is 34 and BE is +5. Then how would you name this gas? Acute or uncompensated metabolic alkalosis
At what PH should we intubate the patient 7.2
Severe hypoxemia is is classified and PaO2 less than ___ mm Hg? 40
What is a normal range for PaO2 on room air? 80-100 mm Hg
If CO2 and HCO3 are moving in opposite directions then what first name would you give the gas? Acute or uncompensated
What is the range of moderate hypoxemia 40-59 mm Hg
You get an ABG and it reads: PH is 7.42 CO2 is 43 HCO3 is 25 and BE is +2. How would you classify this gas? Normal
If PH decreases below 7.35 then it is? Acidic
A PH above 7.45 is? Alkalotic
True or false: the FIO2 a patient is on is also shows up when reading a ABG True
If you are hypoventilating the your CO2 will increase
If you were hyperventilating then your CO2 would? decrease
