New EMergucate Section: LAB CASES

With the start of the New Year we are commencing a new section of regular cases: Lab Cases.

In this section we’ll present clinical cases based on various lab results with special focus initially on blood gases.

The following week on a Wednesday we’ll publish our interpretation.

We hope you enjoy our new cases and welcome any and all feedback.

We’ve posted our first case already below as well as some general topics on the interpretation of blood gases and causes of acid base disorders.
