Blood is a liquid found in all higher animals whose main function is to supply the tissues with nutrients and oxygen and to remove waste products.
Human blood is a liquid tissue; its major function is to transport oxygen necessary to life throughout the body.
Blood also transports metabolic waste products, drugs and other foreign chemicals to the liver to be degraded and to the kidney to be excreted in urine.

 Blood Gas Text
There are four good reasons for obtaining blood gases: 1) to assess the oxygenation capacity of the lungs for diagnostic reasons, 2) to assess the oxygen pressure in the blood for therapeutic reasons, 3) to assess respiratory adequacy, and 4) to assess acid-base status.
And of course, blood gases are used to monitor the therapy of acidosis in the unstable patient.

 Blood Gases: The Test
Blood gas measurements are used to evaluate your oxygenation and acid/base status.
Blood gas measurements may be ordered if you are known to have a respiratory, metabolic, or kidney disease and are experiencing respiratory distress to evaluate your oxygenation and acid/base balance.
A pH imbalance, blood that is either too acidic (state of acidosis) or alkaline (state of alkalosis) will be primarily due to a condition or disease that affects either respiration (breathing, your lungs) or your metabolic processes.

 Critical Care | Full text | Equipment review: Continuous assessment of arterial blood gases
Because clinical decisions need to be made on the basis of trends in blood gases as well as with the rapid detection of an acute event [6,7], continuous non-invasive monitoring techniques, such as pulse-oximetry and continuous capnography, have been developed.
The light is re-emitted at a lower intensity and the decrease in fluorescence is proportional to the concentration of analyte in the dye [13,14].
Aberrant blood gas values, obtained particularly in cases of hypotension or vascular construction were attributed to the `wall-stress effect' on the sensing element [15,16].

A multiparameter blood-gas monitor system combines fiber optics with specific chemical probes to directly measure blood chemistry and blood gases.
The key component in the instrument is a small invasive probe fitted with three optical-fiber sensors that simultaneously measure CO, and pH and a conventional thermocouple for temperature measurement.
During operation, light from an LED source is launched into the probe from a control unit and then reflected by a small stainless-steel mirror encapsulated in the end of each optical fiber.

Two methodologies for obtaining accurate blood gas and electrolyte values during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are traditional laboratory analyzers, which use an electrochemical technology, and continuous in-line monitoring systems, which use a fluorometric and/or spectrophotometric technology.
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of a new continuous in-line monitor, the 3M (TM) CDI (TM) Blood Parameter Monitoring System 500, which provides continuous in-line measurements of pH, PCO2, PO2, potassium (K+), oxygen saturation, hematocrit, hemoglobin, and temperature, during partial or complete CPB.

 Patient Monitoring Systems
Patient monitoring systems consist of equipment, devices and supplies that measure, display and record human physiological characteristics, including blood pressure, body temperature, heart activity, levels of various bodily substances (e.g., blood gases, cholesterol, glucose, etc.), pulse rate, respiration rate and other health-related criteria.
Among the specific products analyzed in the study are multi-, dual- and single-parameter monitors that function either as independent, stand-alone units or components of integrated patient management networks.
Patient monitoring systems measure physiological characteristics either continuously or at regular intervals over time and thereby differ from diagnostic instruments that detect existing medical conditions through single testing procedures.
