If you’ve taken the time to open Arterial Blood Gases Made Easy, you must believe that arterial blood gases (ABGs) are important, but not entirely straightforward. We certainly agree on the first point: ABG analysis now plays an indispensable role in the assessment and management of patients with a huge range of acute medical and surgical problems. On the second point, we hope our book can be of assistance.

For this second edition of Arterial Blood Gases Made Easy we have remained true to our original principles of avoiding extraneous detail and focusing on the aspects of ABG analysis that are practical and useful. In this spirit we have been sparing with our additions to Part 1 of the book but have added 5 new clinical scenarios to Part 2 and included a new video showing how to obtain an arterial sample. We continue to believe that many medical and nursing students, junior doctors and specialist nurses will benefit from a clear, concise guide to performing and interpreting ABGs.

We are indebted to Dr J K Baillie for his advice, suggestions and constructive criticism. We would also like to thank Heather Milne for allowing us to film her wrists for the demonstration video. Finally, we are grateful to Laurence Hunter and Helen Leng for their unfailing support and patience.
