19218-7Oxygen content in Arterial bloodActive

Term Description

Be very careful about mapping to this term. We cannot confirm that anyone reports it in this manner - perhaps as number of molecules of oxygen in a given volume. We also cannot confirm that there is a method for measuring oxygen content directly (rather than as the calculation given under the term 59274-1). Likewise we cannot prove that such an approach does not exist. However, all of the usages that we know about are based on calculations. So be very careful about mapping to oxygen saturation terms that are not derived from calculations, e.g. this term and LOINCs 34163-6 and 19219-5.

Part Description

LP30884-8   Oxygen content
Oxygen content is a component of a blood gas analysis test that helps to evaluate acid-base balance, gas exchange, and voluntary respiratory control. In the blood gas analysis test, blood is drawn from an artery and analyzed in the lab for pH, partial pressure of carbon dioxide, partial pressure of oxygen, bicarbonate content per 100 mL of blood, oxygen saturation, and oxygen content. Oxygen content is the sum of the oxygen that is combined with hemoglobin and the oxygen dissolved in the plasma. The calculation for oxygen content is the following: arterial oxygen content = (Hgb x 1.36)(Oxygen saturation/100)+(partial pressure of oxygen x 0.0031).[PMID:24665166][http://www.scymed.com/en/smnxpr/prgdb276.htm] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
