Abstract

This paper is designed for those familiar with arterial blood gases, alveolar-arterial (A-a) oxygen gradients, and their application in the clinical setting. The concept of a gradient is reviewed, and several examples of clinical applications are given. A nomogram of A-a gradients is pr...read more
