Winning The ABG Game
Arterial Blood Gases (ABGs) provide valuable information to guide patient care decisions. The patient's oxygenation status is easily extracted from the ABG results. Determining the patient's acid-base condition is more challenging.
This course reviews the four acid-base derangements and a simple method of analyzing ABG results will be introduced followed by guided practice.
1. Describe the metabolic and respiratory processes for maintaining acid-base balance
2. Analyze the acid-base component of ABG results
3. Utilize ABG results to determine the plan of care
