Classic Shunt Equation - Qs/Qt


Formula:

Qs/Qt = (CcO2 - CaO2) / (CcO2 - CvO2)


Normals:

Qs/Qt normal less than 10%


About:

Qs/Qt: Physiological shunt to total perfusion ration in % CaO2: Arterial oxygen content in Vol% (mL O2/dL blood). CvO2: Mixed venous oxygen content in Vol% (mL O2/dL blood). CcO2: Capillary oxygen content in Vol% (mL O2/dL blood).
