  1. An atrial "class gas trial" was manufactured to appraise oxygen levels.  Explain why the class was charmed from an artery and not a feeling.
  2. In the class gas trial, the oxygen appraisement is reported as saturation.  How is the oxygen carried in the class, and what correspondently is life saturated delay oxygen.
  3. Why does this unrepining feel low oxygen saturation? What is preventing him from having saturation in the usual order?
  4. How does the abusual oxygen saturation appraise tell to the unrepining's cyanotic (blue) apparition?
