Abstract

Arterial blood gas (ABG) measurements are one of the most frequently requested laboratory examinations in critically ill patients. ABGs include measurement of pHa, PaCO2, PaO2, and oxyhemoglobin saturation. These measurements allow for assessment of the nature, progression, and severity of metabolic and respiratory disturbances.
