Abstract

The i-STAT PCA can be used as a blood analyzer in critical avian patients, although single values must be interpreted carefully. The study of the acid-base status in companion birds is still in its infancy. Further research is needed to establish normal reference values in arterial blood gases, compare them with venous blood gas, and to determine if the formulas that deviate from small animal medicine are or are not applicable.
