Does anyone else have bad ABGs even when not having an exacerbation?
It's been a few months since I had PFTs done, they were good, but at the time I was on prednisolone. Normally w/o pred (couple of year ago anyway) my FEV1 is low 80's and my MMEF is 20's-30's.
Anyway, my recent ABG's were
pH - 7.35
C02 partial pressure - 54
02 partial pressure - 27
Bicarb - 29
Oxygen saturation - 47
Funnily enough, my o2 sat on the pulse ox is ALWAYS 100%. I'll be honest, I do smoke (8 yrs) but d/t nearly always finding that it takes a fair bit of effort to breathe I've started to quit (cutting down and nearly there) ...
So yeah, anyone else have poor ABGs too?
