Transcript of 10 equations
PAO2 = (760-47)FiO2 - PaCO2 (1.2)
therefore, at sea level on room air:
PAO2 = 150 - PaCO2(1.2)
Delivery O2 = Cardiac output (Hgb x SaO2)
Mean arterial pressure = cardiac output x systemic vascular resistance
Metabolic need = Cardiac output x (SaO2 - SvO2)
Flow = K[P(in)-P(out)] - [Onc(in)-Onc(out)]
Wall tension = [Pressure x radius^4]/wall thickness
The 10 Equations
AKA: everything you really need to know about internal medicine
Alveolar gas equation: air to the alveoli
Diffusion = [pressure gradient x area] / wall thickness
Fick's Law of Diffusion: alveoli to blood
blood to tissues
How much is enough?
Spigots & Drains
Fluid across a membrane
How does the body handle
fluid in its chambers?
Assuming a normal PaCO2, what would the PAO2 be?
PAO2 = 150 - 40(1.2)
PAO2 = 150 - 48
PAO2 = 102
What's the A-a gradient?
ABG (room air) @ sea level: pH 7.40, PaCO2 40, PaO2 90

PAO2 = [(760-47)(0.21)] - [(40)(1.2)] = 102
PaO2 on ABG = 90
A-a gradient = PAO2 - PaO2
Normal ~ (1/3 pt's age, minimum of 10)
A-a gradient = 12
CaO2 = (SaO2 x Hb (g) x 1.34 (mL/g)) + .003(PaO2)
Cardiac output =
stroke volume x heart rate
Why do I get more short of breath running in humid weather?
PAO2 = (760 - Vapor Pressure H2O)(0.21) - (PaCO2)(1.2)
Why do I get more short of breath running at altitude?
PAO2 = (Barometric pressure - Vapor Pressure H2O)(FiO2) - (PaCO2)(1.2)
As humidity increases, vapor pressure increases
As altitude increases, barometric pressure decreases
FiO2 does NOT change
Stroke volume = preload x contractility
% metabolic need being met
Delivery of O2 = CO x Hb x SaO2

Metabolism = the facuet
Minute ventilation = the drain
Ventilation and perfusion are not equal across the lung
Illness or exertion drive up metabolism
PaCO2 = CO2 production - minute ventilation
Minute ventilation = (respiratory rate)(tidal volume)(1-deadspace %)
