Transcript of ABG Presenation
Blood Gas Result
pH = 7.3
O2 Sat= 80%
R = Respiratory
O = Opposite
M = Metabolic
E = Equal
Acidotic: <22 (Low Value)
Alkalotic: >26 (High Value)
3. Label your pHCO3 Acidotic (Low), Alkalotic (High), or normal
Normal: 7.35 - 7.45
Acidotic: < 7.35 (Low Value)
Alkalotic: >7.45 (High Value)
1. Label your pH Acidotic (Low) or Alkalotic (High)
Alkalotic: <35 (Low Value)
Acidotic: >45 (High Value)
2. Label your pCO2 Acidotic (High), Alkalotic (Low), or normal
Just a few more steps...
Putting it all together...
What does all this mean??
4. Match either the pCO2 or the pHCO3 to the pH
5. Apply *ROME
R=Respiratory, O=Opposite, M=Metabolic, E=Equal
7. Are the pO2 or the O2 Sat out of range?
6. The metabolic & respiratory systems are the only two that work to maintain pH
Therefore, ABG values are either:
1. Fully Compensated
2. Partially Compensated
(pH normal & pCO2 et. pHCO3 out of range)
(When 2 values out of range [pH, pCO2, or pHCO3])
(All three values out of range)
*pH was low
*pCO2 was high
*pHCO3 was normal
Uncompensated Respiratory Acidosis
*pO2 was low (hypoxic)
*O2 Sat was low (hypoxic)
Uncompensated Respiratory Acidosis with Hypoxia
O2 Sat= 92%
O2 Sat= 95%
