INTRODUCTION

Assuring delivery of adequate amounts of oxygen to the tissue level is a central goal in managing the critically ill. Therefore, the ability to assess oxygenation is an advanced skill that should be developed by all critical care nurses and respiratory care practitioners. This seminar presents the physiology of oxygen transport and utilization in detail, and offers participants the opportunity to develop skill and confidence in performing pulmonary calculations. Mechanisms of hypoxemia are clearly described, and an easy-to-use approach to interpreting arterial blood gases is outlined. Designed with a practice perspective, this seminar goes beyond the basics and helps participants develop in-depth knowledge in this vitally important area.
