Arterial Blood Gas Procedures and Interpretation

Respiratory Care > COMING SOON
RC - Coming soon
This module provides knowledge in the proper steps to perform an arterial blood gas test and how to interpret the results.

Arterial blood gas tests are used to test the function of the lungs to move oxygen into the lungs and remove carbon dioxide. This process is accomplished by obtaining a blood sample from an artery and measuring the oxygen, carbon dioxide, and pH levels. This module provides knowledge in the proper steps to perform an arterial blood gas test and how to interpret the results. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator will test your ability to perform an arterial blood gas test. Practice the steps of the procedure as often as you want until you are confident.

You’ll learn

  • pre-procedure considerations
  • indications for arterial blood gas sampling
  • how to demonstrate the procedure for interpreting an Allen test
  • how to perform a blood gas procedure
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)

The SIMTICS modules are all easy to use and web-based. This means they are available at any time as long as the learner has an internet connection. No special hardware or other equipment is required, other than a computer mouse for use in the simulations. Each of the SIMTICS modules covers one specific procedure or topic in detail. Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
