Understanding Arterial Blood Gases (ABG’s)
The purpose of this course is to give healthcare professionals an outline of the function, meaning, and importance of testing for Arterial Blood Gases (ABG). Arterial Blood Gases (ABG’s) are something nurses working with critically ill patients will almost immediately and frequently encounter. The results can be complicated, but this course will seek to make ABG’s more understandable. All of nature is an incredible series of balancing acts.
