Fundamentals Unit 6

SPC Fundamentals Unit 6 Exam 3

What is oxidation? Electron Loss Occurs @ the anode of the E/C Analyzers Electrolyte solution supplies ions for oxidation reaction
What is reduction? Electron Gain Occurs @ the cathode of the E/C Analyzers O2 is reduced forming OH- (Hydroxide Ion)
Polorgraphic Analyzer Classified as electrochemical type of analyzer 0.6 volt charge is applied to the anode to drive the REDOX reactions Found in Blood Gas Machines/TCO2 monitors Ventilator circuits/Oxygen Analyzers
Galvanic Fuel Cell Classified as electrochemical analyzer No voltage needed for REDOX reactions Found in Ventilator Circuits/Oxygen Analyzers
P/G (Polorgraphic Analyzer) Components Silver Anode Platinum Cathode Battery KCI Electrolyte Solution Polypropylene Membrane
GFC (Galvanic Fuel Cell) Components Lead Anode Gold Cathode KOH or CsOH Electrolyte Solution Teflon Membrane
Clinical Applications Pressure effects readings (High ALT=low readings)(PEEP=high readings) Water vapor effects readings (low)
P/G Response Time <30sec
GFC Response Time Up to 60sec
E/C stands for? Electrochemical
REDOX Reduction-Oxidation
