Abstract

This article examines acid-base balance and the interpretation of arterial blood gases (ABG). The
article begins with a brief revision of related physiology, followed by a description of the primary
disorders associated with acid-base imbalance. The normal ranges and the significance of
abnormal ABG results are explored. The article concludes by providing an easy to follow four-step
guide to ABG interpretation with practice examples presented in the CPD task section.
