- Hypoxia is a condition where either all (generalized hypoxia) or a specific part of the body (regional hypoxemia) does not receive or is not able to use adequate oxygen for aerobic metabolism.
- Hypoxemia is a reduction in the concentration of oxygen in arterial blood.
- A PaO2 of <80 mmHg is strictly classed as hypoxaemia, but some classify mild hypoxaemia as PaO2 80–90 mmHg; moderate as 60–80 mmHg; and severe as <60 mmHg.

- Arterial blood gas analysis helps determine: blood pH, blood oxygenation, and blood CO2 carriage
- Venous blood gas analysis can also tell about acid-base status.
- Regulation of pH is required because most biochemical (metabolic) reactions can only occur efficiently within a narrow pH range.
- Understand the difference between total and ionised calcium
- Understand the role of the key hormones involved in the calcium homeostasis
- Be able to interpret calcium, phosphorous, PTH and vitamin D levels in different clinical situations
