Acid-Base Balance and Blood Gas Interpretation

  • M. Fareed Azam

Abstract

Disorders in acid-base balance and oxygenation present some of the most challenging problems in the postoperative care of surgical patients. Proper management of these disorders is not possible without the understanding of basic blood gas interpretation and acid-base balance physiology.
