Normal Values ::


      Normal Values and Acceptable Ranges of the ABG Elements

      ABG Element Normal Value Range
      pH 7.4 7.35 to 7.45
      Pa02 90mmHg 80 to 100 mmHg
      Sa02 93 to 100%
      PaC02 40mmHg 35 to 45 mmHg
      HC03 24mEq/L 22 to 26mEq/L


    Remember: Definitions

    Acidosis (acidemia) occurs when pH drops below 7.35

    Alkalosis (alkalemia) occurs when the pH rises above 7.45

    A primary respiratory problem is determined if the PaC02 is less than 35mmHg(alkalosis) or greater than 45 mmHg(acidosis).

    A primary metabolic problem is when the HC03 is less than 22mEq/L (acidosis) or greater than 26mEq/L(alkalosis).
