⁠Simplified approach to ABG’s

Arterial Blood Gases (ABGs) provide critical information about a patient's respiratory and metabolic status, guiding clinical decision-making. A simplified approach to ABGs involves assessing three key parameters: pH, partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2), and bicarbonate (HCO3-). The pH value indicates the acidity or alkalinity of the blood, with a normal range of 7.35 to 7.45. PaCO2 reflects the respiratory component, and an elevated level indicates respiratory acidosis, while a decreased level suggests respiratory alkalosis. HCO3- represents the metabolic component, and abnormal levels indicate metabolic acidosis or alkalosis. Evaluate the patient's clinical presentation, medical history, and concurrent laboratory results to interpret ABG values in a holistic context. Regularly reassess ABGs to monitor the effectiveness of interventions and guide ongoing management of respiratory and metabolic disturbances.
