Normal Results The normal range is 23 to 29 milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L) or 23 to 29 millimoles per liter (mmol/L).
What is eco2 in blood test?
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an odorless, colorless gas. It is a waste product made by your body. Your blood carries carbon dioxide to your lungs. You breathe out carbon dioxide and breathe in oxygen all day, every day, without thinking about it. A CO2 blood test measures the amount of carbon dioxide in your blood.
What is a normal CO2 rate?
Carbon dioxide levels and potential health problems are indicated below: 250-350 ppm: background (normal) outdoor air level. 350-1,000 ppm: typical level found in occupied spaces with good air exchange. 1,000-2,000 ppm: level associated with complaints of drowsiness and poor air.
What is a good CO2 reading?
Normal values in adults are 22 to 29 mmol/L or 22 to 29 mEq/L. Higher levels of carbon dioxide may mean you have: Metabolic alkalosis, or too much bicarbonate in your blood.
What is an unhealthy level of CO2?
400–1,000 ppm: typical level found in occupied spaces with good air exchange. 1,000–2,000 ppm: level associated with complaints of drowsiness and poor air. 2,000–5,000 ppm: level associated with headaches, sleepiness, and stagnant, stale, stuffy air.
What is the normal anion gap?
Normal results are 3 to 10 mEq/L, although the normal level may vary from lab to lab. If your results are higher, it may mean that you have metabolic acidosis. Hypoalbuminemia means you have less albumin protein than normal. If you have this condition, your expected normal result must be lower.
What is normal CO level in house?
Average levels in homes without gas stoves vary from 0.5 to 5 parts per million (ppm). Levels near properly adjusted gas stoves are often 5 to 15 ppm and those near poorly adjusted stoves may be 30 ppm or higher.
