Arterial Blood Gas Interpretation Made Easy

This poster offers a basic level of understanding of ABGs for medical students. I have also made an ID-card-sized version which can be easily used on the ward. Students can work around the table, looking at pH, then CO2 and then HCO3- and find the answer in the correct box.

Under "Respiratory Alkalosis - Signs" should it not read "... vasoconstriction from DECREASED Co2".

All the key ABG interpretation points on a single page - very useful both for revision as well as on clinical attachments. Thank you for sharing.
