Test Details
Test Code:PL0220
Test Name:Blood Gases
Test Details & Preparation
Blood gas measurements are used to evaluate a person's lung function and acid/base balance. They are typically ordered if someone is having worsening symptoms of a respiratory problem, such as difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, and a condition such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is suspected. Blood gases may also be used to monitor treatment for lung diseases and to evaluate the effectiveness of supplemental oxygen therapy.

Blood gases are used to detect an acid-base imbalance, such as can occur with kidney failure, heart failure, uncontrolled diabetes, severe infections, and drug overdose. They may be ordered along with other tests, such as electrolytes to determine if an electrolyte imbalance is present, glucose to evaluate blood sugar concentrations, and BUN and creatinine tests to evaluate kidney function.

A blood gas analysis is ordered when someone has symptoms of an oxygen/carbon dioxide or pH imbalance, such as difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, nausea, or vomiting. It may also be ordered when someone is known to have a respiratory, metabolic, or kidney disease and is experiencing respiratory distress.

When someone is ventilation, blood gases may be measured at intervals to monitor the effectiveness of treatment. Other treatments for lung diseases may also be monitored with blood gases.

Blood gases may also be ordered when someone has head or neck trauma, which may affect breathing, and when someone is undergoing prolonged anaesthesia - particularly for cardiac bypass surgery or brain surgery - to monitor blood gases during, and for a period after, the procedure.

Results from an arterial blood gas analysis are not diagnostic they should be used in combination with the results of other tests and exams to evaluate someone for a respiratory, metabolic, or kidney problem. Abnormal results of any of the blood gas components may indicate a person is not getting enough oxygen a person is not getting rid of enough carbon dioxide or there is a problem with a person's kidney function.

A low partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) suggests that a person is not getting enough oxygen, while results that are within normal range usually mean that oxygen intake is sufficient. All other components of the blood gas analysis (pH, PaCO2, HCO3-) are interrelated and the results must be considered together. Certain combinations of results, if abnormal, may indicate a condition that is causing acidosis.
