1. In patients with severe pulmonary disease causing
hypoxemia, how can altering body position improve such hypoxemia?
2. What effect would anemia that causes a progressive
decrease in Hb from (a) 15 g/dl, to (b) 12 g/dl, to (c) 8 g/ dl, to (d) 4 g/dl,
have on the amount of O2 carried in a patient’s blood? Assume that
PO2 and saturation stay normal at 100 mm Hg and 97%
