Depends: If there is sepsis, the oxygen goes down and there could be acidosis (low ph). Otherwise, the carrying capacity of oxygen goes down due to lysis of cells but the oxygen seen, the saturation, may be the same. If there is fever, a person breaths faster and the ph goes up and co2 goes down. In short, there is nothing specific attributable to dengue fever in abg.
