-: hemoglobin transports 99% of oxygen to tissues
•Decreased Hb production, increased RBC
destruction, blood loss
Increased Metabolic Rate
-Increased rate increased oxygen demand
-Oxygenation decreased if unable to meet
-Exercise, pregnancy, fever
-Prolonged or high fever
•Protein breakdown & muscle wasting
• RR & depth to rid waste products (CO2)
• chest wall compliance, elastic recoil, functioning alveoli
• cilia function, cough force, immunity
• response to hypoxemia, hypercapnia
Deceased Inspired O2 Concentration
-Upper or lower airway obstruction
-Decreased environmental oxygen
-Incorrect setting on oxygen delivery
in excess of cellular need for oxygen
-Enhances alveolar ventilation & flushes out
-Decreased pCO2 producing alkalosis
-Usually self limiting
-Increases Hb affinity for O2 O2 held onto
