pco2 is partial pressure of o2 in the capillary and paco2 is partial pressure of co2 in the arteries. So, one is a measurement of O2 and the other is CO2
mm Hg (mercury)
Yes. pH measures the acidity or the level of hydronium ions, and pCO2 measures the level of cabron dioxide. They are not mutually exclusive.
what is difference between exhaustible and inexhaustible
35-45 mm Hg --- The normal PaCO2 (arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the blood) is 40mmHg. There is a normal range, which is 35-45mmHg. For those with COPD 60 or below is good.
It is part of the anatomic dead space calculation. PaCO2 (arterial carbon dioxide) minus PeCO2 (end tidal CO2) The formula for calculating anatomic dead space (the space where there is ventilation without perfusion in the respiratory system, between mouth and terminal bronchi) PaCO2-PeCO2/PaCO2. Accurate values for calculation need to be obtained from an ABG (arterial blood gas)
The PaCO2 range is 35 to 45 mmHg
No, it is higher or the CO2 would not move out of the lungs.
