|Data Element (edit)|
The acidity or basicity of the patient's arterial blood.
It is an element of the Arterial blood gas (APACHE).
Arterial blood gas (APACHE) instructions
There are special collection instructions for Arterial blood gas (APACHE), refer there for further info.

This value is used to generate the APACHE Score.
Collecting Apache physiological variables
There are some specific rules to follow in choosing which one of several lab results to collect.
See APACHE physiological variable collection for details.
Rules described in APACHE_physiological_variable_collection#Exceptionally_high_or_low_values are implemented by Check APACHE physiological variable high low.
There have been different collection practices used when selecting the PH value, the original APACHE II user manual (version 1.0) is as above and that is how it should be collected.
