CALCULATING PARTIAL PRESSURE
= TOTAL PRESSURE X GAS FRACTION
IN LUNG: TOTAL PRESSURE = ATMOSPHERIC
PRESSURE
Pgas= Patm x Fgas
AT SEA LEVEL:
Patm = 760 mmHg
PO2= 760 mmHg x 0.2093
=159 mmHg
PCO2= 760 mmHg x 0.063
=0.23 mmHg
On MT Everest
Patm = 250 mmHg
Po2= 250 mmHg *0.2093= 52 mmHg
Lower partial pressure of O2 at altitude
