ABG Champion!

So he was asked to demonstrate as ABG is needed for one patient.
He took the needle, inserted it to patient’s wrist at an obviously wrong site for radial artery, and obtained nothing but some air. (Specialist and MO frowned, thought he was going to withdraw and re-attempt).

Surprisingly, he pulled out the needle like ending a procedure, passing it to the nurse, “Go and analyze this in the ABG machine…”

Specialist stopped him, “What are you going to analyze there? It’s just air!”

And he said, “Ya, you asked me to take arterial blood GAS right? I got it!”
