Blood gas status plays a key role in evaluating the condition of critically ill patients. Evaluation of blood gas parameters can be divided into subgroups of oxygen status, related metabolic parameters and acid-base status. Because each subgroup consists of several parameters, the amount of data to interpret may be overwhelming.
The Radiometer Blood Gas app is an easy-to-use guide to assist you with this task.
The app offers guidance to the evaluation of arterial oxygen status based on comprehensive blood gas analysis (i.e., including oximetry) and a closely related metabolic parameter, lactate.
You can add and edit your own reference intervals as well as notes for individual parameters.
In addition, the Radiometer Blood gas app provides a description of the parameters available on Radiometer‘s blood gas analyzers, including blood gas and acid-base parameters, metabolic parameters and electrolytes, as well as guides to evaluating them.
The app supports the following languages: Danish, English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
Specific choice of language can be made through the Settings App.
Although such a guide always has to be used with caution, as not every possible detail or condition can be covered, it can help the clinician make decisions with regard to the need for further tests and therapeutic interventions.
