Summary
    Developed specifically for student nurses and based on the author's over thirty years of teaching experience, Interpreting Arterial Blood Gases the Easy Way teaches students a step-by-step method for interpreting blood gases and helps them learn how to apply the interpretations.

    The booklet is divided into two parts. Part I teaches students to differentiate between acidic and alkaline states, identify respiratory or metabolic changes in blood gases, and recognize compensated, partially compensated, and uncompensated states. In Part II students apply what they have learned in order to recognize signs and symptoms of abnormal blood gases, identify appropriate interventions, and understand the meaning and significance of specific oxygenation levels.

    Clear and well-organized, the material features quizzes for self-evaluation, critical thinking questions, and tips that may assist with the National Council Licensure Examination. Knowledge of basic physiology and acid-base balance is recommended before using the booklet, but the information is also reviewed. Interpreting Arterial Blood Gases the Easy Way is an excellent choice for nursing programs. It can also be used in training respiratory therapists and emergency medical technicians.

    Cheryl Miller is a registered nurse who earned both her M.S.N. and her Ed.D. at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Dr. Miller is a professor of nursing at Chattanooga State Community College where she teaches medical-surgical nursing specializing in critical care, and serves as the chair of the nursing program effectiveness committee, and as liaison with area hospitals for student clinical placement.
