Despite the frequency of measurement and physiologic importance of oxygen, laboratorians often are not familiar with how these measurements are used to calculate oxygen-related parameters, such as O2 delivery and consumption, A ? a gradient, paO2/FIO2 ratio, pulmonary ventilation and perfusion, and how the clinician uses them to evaluate and monitor hypoxemia in critically ill patients. This session will be presented by a laboratory director and a practicing physician to provide clinical, pathophysiological, and practical information that will allow the participant to understand and interpret how oxygen and oxygen-related calculations are utilized to diagnose and manage the patient in critical care settings.
