This CD-ROM program uses an interactive format to teach the principles of arterial blood gases, sampling techniques, and gas transport concepts. Further it reviews potential errors that may occur in sampling, handling, storing, and transporting specimens that may result in altered blood gas results and discusses methods to help avoid pre-analytical problems.
There is also a comprehensive, in-depth section that provides learners the opportunity to apply theory to practice by presenting data and case studies for the learner to analyze and interpret arterial blood gases. A 50-question test, which may be used for self-assessment or application for continuing education credit, follows the educational segment.
This is a highly graphic CD-ROM program that uses an interactive approach to present the essential principles of arterial blood gases, sampling techniques, and gas transport concepts. The students and faculty can appreciate the logical organization of the material, as well as the clear presentation of complex concepts in a dynamic multimedia experience!
