Today every ICU provides rapid and automated blood gas testing twenty-four hours a day.
The emphasis in this handy manual on blood gases is on interpreting readings and wisely using the information derived.
The self-testing questions and glossary make it particularly useful.
The second edition includes patient scenarios, more figures, a revised bibliography, and pertinent internet addresses.
