VBG Policy and Procedure


Does anyone have a policy and procedure for venous blood gas drawn from central lines? Most of the literature we found didnt focus on the accuracy of the VBG results based on how its drawn i.e. with or without clave, order of drawn, sample size, time of draw, temparature etc.  Any advice or referrals would be appreciated. 

Venous blood gases are only

Venous blood gases are only common when you are trying to rule out arterial placement of the CVAD. I have never seen information regarding your questions.
