What is the normal range for ABG Test?
An arterial blood gas test or ABG test measures the acidity (pH) and levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood. The normal ranges vary from lab to lab and depend upon the range a lab uses. A doctor evaluates the results based on the health and other factors of the patient. The reports are genuinely quite complex for a non-doctor to understand as there is so much information in it. But there is a certain standard reference range that helps to evaluate the results. Typically normal values include:
Arterial blood pH: 7.38 to 7.42
Bicarbonate: 22 to 28 milliequivalents per liter
A partial pressure of oxygen: 75 to 100 mm Hg
A partial pressure of carbon dioxide: 38 to 42 mm Hg
Oxygen saturation: 94 to 100 percent
What is the procedure for ABG Test in Delhi?
The procedure for ABG Test is simple and takes 5-10 minutes approximately. Your phlebotomist (medically trained to draw blood) will insert a needle into your artery to draw blood. Usually, the blood is drawn from a vein but for ABG test, your technician will choose an artery. As an artery carries oxygenated blood away from the heart to the body whereas a vein carries de-oxygenated blood back from the body to the heart. The blood will be collected in a labelled test tube. After the blood sample collection process is done, you might feel slight bruise or pain on the puncture site. Your technician will cover the affected area with a medical patch. The sample will be sent to a laboratory for an analysis and ensure accurate results.
You must inform your health care provider if you consume blood thinner pills such as aspirin or warfarin or any other medications. Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns regarding the test or the report.
Who is recommended to get an ABG Test done?
Your doctor may order an ABG test if your body shows an imbalance of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and PH levels. The symptoms may include shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, tensed and confused and nausea. Your doctor may also suggest the test if he finds any sign of lung disease, kidney disease, metabolic disease, head or neck injuries that affect the respiratory system.
What are the possible interpretations of ABG Test Result?
Your test can be affected if you have an abnormal body temperature, anemia, smoked recently or indirectly inhaled the smell of any varnish remover, paint or carbon monoxide. If you receive an abnormal result then it may be caused due to lung, kidney, or metabolic diseases. Head or neck injuries or other injuries that affect breathing can also lead to abnormal results. Typically Arterial blood gas values are most helpful when they are studied with other examinations and tests.
