Case 1

In the first oxygen transport study, the patient's Do 2 was only 316 mL. Her Vo 2 was 214 mL. What was her O 2 ER?

Summary Introduction

To review:

The oxygen extraction ratio (O2ER) of the patient.

Introduction:

The oxygen transport study gives us information about the total oxygen delivery (Do2), oxygen consumption (Vo2), and the oxygen extraction ratio (O2ER). Total oxygen delivery is known as the amount of oxygen that can be transported to the peripheral tissues and oxygen consumption is defined as the amount of oxygen extracted from the peripheral tissues.

Please refer to Clinical Application Case-1 for further information.

Explanation
