Description

Measurement of blood gases is vital to assess gas exchange function of the lungs, to titrate oxygen therapy and to assess metabolic state of the patient. A basic understanding of the working principles of the equipment used in measuring blood gases, their limitations and sources of error is essential for interpretation of blood gas results. This session describes the components of a blood gas analyser along with principles of measuring partial pressure of oxygen, partial pressure of carbon dioxide and pH. This session also enables you to understand the practical problems and sources of error in the results obtained.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Identify the components of a blood gas analyser and the working principles of oxygen electrodes
• Describe the principles of measuring pH
• Evaluate the principles of measuring partial pressure of carbon dioxide in a given blood sample
• Recognise the problems associated with measurement and interpretation of arterial blood gases
