NCLEX Review: Blood Gases
On the NCLEX exam, you will be tested on how well you know acid-base balance and blood gases. Acid-base balance is critical in maintaining homeostasis in the body, and an imbalance can lead to illness or death. In this NCLEX review video, you will learn: how to tell when blood is acidic or alkaline, what causes acidosis and alkalosis, what arterial blood gas (ABG) is, how pH is the most important component of ABG analysis, what normal values you will need to memorize, how to analyze ABG values (shown through examples), and “ROME” for acid-base imbalances.
