Routine arterial blood gas analysis
and electrolyte analysis measurements were performed at the post-extubation period.
A blood gas analysis
of the cavernosal blood was conducted, and it showed normal oxygenation with no signs of an acid-base imbalance, as shown in Table 1.
Normal respiratory function tests, echocardiography and arterial blood gas analysis
held us from earlier intervention even though patient's subjective complaint was impressive.
In conclusion, adequate correlation and agreement between ABG/pVBG, ABG/cVBG, and pVBG/cVBG comparisons were found for pH but not for other variables included in the blood gas analysis
in severe sepsis and septic shock.
Capillary blood gas analysis
can be used to estimate the pH and Pa[O.sub.2], but may not be of value for calculating pC[O.sub.2] or bicarbonate.
Although our diagnosis focused on methemoglobinemia because of the characteristics of the surgical procedure, the diagnosis was made definitive after blood gas analysis
showed no abnormality in Pa[O.sub.2] saturation, an increase in methemoglobin, and a remarkable change in skin color.
We thought that the lower re-hospitalization rate in the IV nitrate group may also be explained by the effect of IV NTG on blood gas analysis
results as well as its lowering effect of serum BNP level.
The results of routine hematological tests and arterial blood gas analysis
Arterial blood gas analysis
was performed at induction through an arterial line inserted in radial artery, 15 minutes after performing pneumoperitoneum and each 20 minutes after that until the end of operation.
Blood sample was taken for blood gas analysis
, and invasive monitoring was performed for confirming the arterial placement.
The number of patients in which main indication for arterial line insertion was continuous arterial blood gas analysis
and continuous blood pressure monitoring were same between the two groups (Table 1).
