This helpful, practical book begins with a clear explanation of acid-base balance, followed by a straightforward six-step approach to arterial blood gas interpretation. The authors then apply this approach to a wide range of realistic case studies that resemble situations readers are likely to encounter in practice.
With a strong focus on patient care pathways and including the most up-to-date information on arterial blood gas interpretation, this book will be invaluable to nurses, junior doctors and biomedical scientists as well as students and trainees in all these areas.
