Blood gas analysis is generally done to check the function of the pulmonary organs into which red blood cells carry oxygen and carbon dioxide from and throughout the body. In addition, this test can be done to check the condition of the heart and kidney organs, as well as symptoms caused by disturbances in the distribution of oxygen and carbon dioxide, or pH balance in the blood, such as nausea, shortness of breath, and decreased consciousness. This test is also done on patients who are using breathing aids to monitor their effectiveness.
