Interpretation Of Arterial Blood Gases

Values measured directly: PaCO2, PaO2, pH PaO2 and PaCO2 must be corrected for temperature variations from the 37 degrees of the analyzer. Increased temperature decreases gas solubility and falsely increases the gas tensions. The opposite is true for lowering temperature. Sampling syringes should be glass or otherwise capable of limiting diffusion of the gases. Added heparin prevents blood from clotting. Samples should be free of air bubbles that allow equilibration of gases between the bubble and the blood sample, thereby lowering the measured gas tensions. Samples not analyzed immediately should be placed on ice to prevent metabolism of oxygen by platelets and leukocytes present in the blood sample. Room-temperature samples should be analyzed within 15 minutes. Iced samples can be analyzed up to an hour after acquisition. PaO2 is directly measured by a Clark electrode and can be used to assess oxygen exchange through a few relationships. Estimated normal PaO2 = 100 mmHg (0.3) age in years The PaO2 rises with increasing FiO2. Inadequate or decreased oxygen exchange decreases the ratio. Approximate PaO2 by multiplying FiO2 by 5 (eg, FiO2 = 21%, then PaO2 = 100 mmHg) PaO2 is depend Continue reading >>

    My teeth look awesome because I brush 10-15 times a day. Listerine breath strips don't touch it. Neither gum nor mints help. I don't even want to be in public.
    Nothing is worse than catching a whiff of my own breath and wondering what died and then realizing it's my innards slowly rotting and wafting out of my mouth.
    How long does this rotting corpse smell last and what can I do?

  2. Bufflehead

    I don't know how long it lasts but I hear you. I'm glad I'm not seeing anyone right now because the only creature alive who could want to kiss me (and does) is my dog.

    Ketosis breath is typically "sweet" smelling.....similar to juicy fruit gum, oddly enough. If you truly have ketosis breath....eat some carbs, you really shouldn't be in ketosis if you're getting 20g of carbs a day. This isn't the Atkins diet we're doing here.
    However....I see you're recently sleeved and your body is going to be in upheaval..."Cleaning house" so to speak...it's common to have a bit more bacteria living in the oral region than usual causing some rank breath. Try a tongue brush and attempt to get waaaay back on your tongue without gagging yourself....you'd be amazed by how much gunk can live back there....also, a good mouthwash swish and gargle will help. This too shall pass...hang in there and best of luck.

This video shows you how to find or calculate the mass of a single atom of carbon and the mass of a single molecule of carbon dioxide.

Lab Test: Carbon Dioxide, Co2 (blood) Level

Lab Test: Carbon Dioxide, CO2 (Blood) Level Total carbon dioxide content (TCO2) measurement is the sumof the bicarbonate, carbonic acid, and dissolved carbon dioxide (CO2) inplasma, serum or whole blood. In the peripheral venous blood this is used toassist in evaluating the pH status of the patient and to assist in evaluationof electrolytes. Adults, plasma, at sea level: 21-30 mEq/L (21-30 mmol/L) Adults, capillary (heparin) plasma: 22-28 mEq/L (22-28 mmol/L) Adults, whole blood, arterial: 19-24 mEq/L (190-24 mmol/L) Adults, whole blood, venous: 22-26 mEq/L (22-26 mmol/L) Adults over 60 years, plasma or serum, venous: 23-31 mEq/L (23-31 mmol/L) Adults over 90 years, plasma or serum, venous: 20-29 mEq/L (20-29 mmol/L) Premature, 1 week, capillary (heparin) plasma: 14-27 mEq/L (14-27 mmol/L) Newborn, capillary (heprin) plasma: 13-22 mEq/L (13-22 mmol/L) Infant, capillary (heparin) plasma: 20-28 mEq/L (20-28 mmol/L) Child, capillary (heparin) plasma: 20-28 mEq/L (20-28 mmol/L) Suspected metabolic acidosis - the TCO2 concentration isreduced in both metabolic acidosis and respiratory alkalosis. A reduced blood pH measurement confirms thediagnosis of metabolic acidosis. Suspected metabo Continue reading >>

    Hey All!! Happy Fourth!
    I was wondering if anyone has any advice or insights on a keto carb up day? Been seeing it a lot on some pages I follow.

    I was wondering if anyone has any advice or insights on a keto carb up day?

    I've never heard that phrase before, could you explain what it means?

    Wait. What?

    Have no clue what that is. What is the purpose of a carb up on a low carb way of eating? I don't get it.

Bicarbonate Blood Test & Carbon Dioxide (co2) Levels In Blood

Bicarbonate is a form of carbon dioxide (CO2), a gas waste left when your body burns food for energy. Bicarbonate belongs to a group of electrolytes , which help keep your body hydrated and make sure your blood has the right amount of acidity. Too much or too little bicarbonate can be a sign of a number of conditions, including diarrhea , liver failure , kidney disease , and anorexia . A bicarbonate test measures how much carbon dioxide is in your blood. Its usually part of a larger electrolyte test that tells your doctor how much sodium, potassium , and chloride is in your body. They may do this test as part of a regular checkup, or to try to find out why you dont feel well. Your doctor might check the CO2 levels in your blood if you have: If youre being treated for liver , lung , or digestive conditions, your doctor might check your bicarbonate levels regularly to see if your therapy or medication is working. A doctor or nurse will take a sample of your blood from your arm with a needle. Let your doctor know if you take any medications or supplements , because they can affect the results. So can eating grapefruits, tangerines, and other fruits high in acid. The test uses only th Continue reading >>

    I'm trying keto for the second time and I've been moving through my first week just fine when some friends wanted to get something from sonic. Its a gross place and I had a hard time finding something that I thought I could eat. I figured chicken strips and a coke zero would be fine, completely forgetting they bread those things before they fry them. I looked them up as 5 pieces being 42 grams of carbs and I'm wondering if that would be enough to kick me out (I havent been able to find a pharmacy with ketostix yet)

  2. Jazistico

    It could be and ketostix won't necessarily tell you one way or another. Just put it behind you, do better and keto on.

    alright, thank you
