Hi, Im a Respiratory therapy student what does it mean when PH IS NORMAL, PCO2 IS NORMAL AND Pa02 IS 150mm/hg at room air. Why do you think Pa02 is high, I was asked this by my instructor and didn't know the answer and still don't, please help.
If the pO2 exceeds 100mmHg, the patient is probably on supplemental oxygen. It is possible to get an elevated pO2 from hyperventilation, but most often it will be from O2 therapy.
