An Arterial Blood Gas Test Quiz! - Quiz

An Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) is a blood test that is used to measure a few vital things is the body, such as the levels of oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), acid, or pH from an artery. This test is used to check the function of the lungs, and how well they are able to move oxygen into the blood and eliminate carbon dioxide. Now, answer these questions and see how many you can hit right.
