97538-3Carbon dioxide [Partial pressure] in Central venous bloodActive

Part Descriptions

LP15150-3   Carbon dioxide
CO2 content is a measurement of total CO2 in the blood. Most of it is in the form of bicarbonate (HCO3) controlled by the kidney. A small amount (5%) of CO2 is dissolved in the blood as insoluble carbonic acid (H2CO3). Changes in CO2 content generally relate to metabolic issues, renal function and unusual losses (diarrhea). Respiratory disease can ultimately effect CO2 content, but only slightly and only if prolonged.

LP422982-1   BldCV
Central venous blood is blood found in the interior jugular or subclavian vein sampled via a central venous catheter. The composition of central venous blood is different from mixed venous blood, found in the pulmonary artery and also sampled via catheter, and peripheral venous blood, sampled via venipuncture. Central venous blood contains blood from the upper body, whereas mixed venous blood contains deoxygenated blood from the entire body. Source: LOINC
