    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:02 PaO2 is the partial pressure of oxygen in the alveoli.

    00:07 The normal range for PaO2 is 80-100.

    00:12 The ratio of a PaO2/FiO2 can be used to evaluate the level of impairment of the patient's ability to move oxygen to the arteries.

    00:21 Remember, 300-500 is considered the normal PaO2/FiO2 range.

    00:28 So what are you waiting for, get out there and figure out your patient's PaO2/FiO2 ratio.
