Artery (Definition)

Arteries are a type of blood vessels. We can divide blood vessels into 2 categories. Arteries are high pressure vessels which deliver (red) oxygen + blood out into the body. Veins on the other hand or low pressure vessels which return (dark) oxygent - blood from the body ...Read more

Hematoma wrist: its difficult to tell without seeing you, the main concern is that blood leaks enough to cause compression on the nerved and blood supply to the hand. the important things to look at in the speed of progress of the swelling, or development of pain, pain on passive stretch of muscles in the hand.

Arterial blood gas showed my pO2 was HIGH at 103. How is this possible? I'm not on oxygen therapy or anything like that. I was breathing normally.

High PO2 level: It is important to know the rest of the blood gas test results. pH? pCO2? Bicarbonate? Your doctor can put it all in perspective for you. What was the O2 sat? If low, it might point to a methemoglobinemia, perhaps from some meds you take. Best to discuss the entire blood gas study with your provider. Normal PO2 shouldn't be above 102. . ...Read more

Arterial blood gas results: PH- 7.431, pCO2- 40.1, HCO3- 26.1, BE- 1.7. Are these normal or elevated? Could this cause Ventricular tachycardia?

Arterial blood gas results: PH- 7.431, pCO2- 40.1, HCO3- 26.1, BE- 1.7. Are these normal or elevated? Could this cause Ventricular tachycardia?

Normal blood gas ABG: The result you've provided so far seem within the reference range for most blood gas machines - so, "average". One result you didn't list is the pO2, which is a measure of the oxygen content of arterial blood. A low pO2 can cause ventricular tachycardia (VT); however, I suspect the ABG was used as part of a wider panel of tests to help determine cause of VT. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test ...Read more

Can high o2 affinity hemoglobin cause arterial blood gas values of high o2?

Can high o2 affinity hemoglobin cause arterial blood gas values of high o2?

Less O2 delivery: High o2 affinity HGB (leftward shift in o2 saturation curve) means it requires a higher partial pressure of o2 to achieve the same o2 saturation. The HGB is more tightly bound to o2 and less is delivered to the tissues. More o2 will be necessary to adequately deliver oxygen to the tissues. ...Read more

Mearsurment: THe sampling of blood from an artery gives the tester a clue as to how much oxygen your cells are carrying, the level of Co2 to see if respiration and acid base balance is in check.

What ia an ?Arterial blood gas exam?

Blood oxygen test.: An abg is a test that measures the oxygen tension, carbon dioxide, and acidity (ph) of blood taken from an artery. It is used to determine how well the blood is being oxygenated and how well gas exchange is occuring. This information is vital when caring for patients with critical illness or respiratory disease. ...Read more
