With the increased sophistication of laboratory instrumentation, physician and nursing staffs are being presented with large amounts of clinical data which they are expected to interpret in order to formulate proper therapy for their patients. One of the recent advances has been the development of arterial blood gas analysis. This test now provides reliable, accurate data on the blood gas status of patients, thereby presenting information to clinical staffs which was not available before. Accompanying these improvements in technique has been a steady increase in knowledge and studies performed on various blood gas disorders.<R>1-8</R>
