Unformatted text preview: Stays the same The total oxygen content of blood? Decreases 4, Which will carry more oxygen in his blood : A with Hb of 15g/dL and an arterial Po 2 of 80 torr or B with a reduced Hb of 12g/dL and a normal arterial Po 2 of 100 torr. Give actual numbers A. Will carry 19.5 mL/dL oxygen in his blood B. Will carry 16 mL/dL of oxygen in his blood 5. An anemic patient has a Hb of 10g/dL. Which will be the more effective treatment : giving her 100% oxygen to breath, causing Po 2 to go to 120 torr, or giving her a transfusion that raises her Hb to 11g/dL? 100 torr = 13.4mL/dL 120 torr = 13.5mL/dL Hb 10g/dL = 13.4mL/dL Hb 11g/dL = 14.7mL/dL 6. According to the computer program, at what Po 2 does Hb first reach 100% saturation? Po 2 = 648...
