Purpose:

To calculate the alveolar oxygen tension.

Specialty:

Pulmonary Disease

Objective:

other testing

ICD-10:

J00-J99

Description:

The alveolar oxygen tension refers to the partial pressure in the alveolar gas. This is less than the oxygen tension in the inspired air, due to removal of oxygen by passing blood and the addition of carbon dioxide.
