ABG Tic Tac Toe

  I remember the first time I was presented with ABG's, I nearly cried. I could figure out the pH part, acid vs alkaline was pretty simple I had been testing the acidity of pool water for a long time by them. But the metabolic vs respiratory boggled my mind and hurt my head, and forget compensation. No way!


  Obviously I figured it out, I wouldn't have graduated if I hadn't. And now I specialize in ventilators, so it's kind of second nature. But I realize how intimidating it is, and after a little digging I found this work sheet that an instructor handed out in class. 



 I hope it helps!
