English term or phrase: blood gas test
Definition from healthline:
A blood gas test measures the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood. It may also be used to determine the pH of the blood, or how acidic it is. The test is commonly known as a blood gas analysis or arterial blood gas (ABG) test.

Example sentence(s):
  • The RapidPoint 500e Blood Gas Analyzer is an essential instrument supporting COVID-19 response efforts, where blood gas testing plays a critical role in managing infected patients and monitoring their respiratory distress.
  • Doctors recommend for blood gas test if symptoms such as shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing, confusion, and nausea are witnessed. The pH value of blood, serum, or plasma is an indicator of the balance between the blood, renal (kidney), and lung (respiratory) systems, that is, depending on acidic or basic blood sample of the patients, the functioning of these vital organs of the body can be determined. Allied Market Research
  • On admission we performed arterial blood gas test on room air and found mild hypoxia and respiratory alkalosis with metabolic compensation Nature

Definition from Terveyskirjasto:
tiettyjen vereen liuenneiden kaasujen osapaineen (ja pH:n) mittaus, tavallisesti hapen ja hiilidioksidin osapaineen mittaus valtimoverestä ja hiussuoniverestä

Example sentence(s):
  • Vastasyntyneen voinnin ja napavaltimon verikaasuanalyysin välillä on joskus epäsuhta, kun lapsen vointi on hyvä mutta napavaltimon pH ja emäsylimäärä viittaavat hapenpuutteeseen. - Duodecim  
  • Verikaasuanalyysilla (Astrup) voidaan mitata ja tutkia elimistön happo-emästasapainoa sekä kaasujen vaihtoa. ---Verikaasuanalyysin oikeanlainen tulkinta on sairaanhoidossa tärkeää, jotta osataan arvioida ja hoitaa happo-emästasapainon häiriöistä johtuvia oireita, potilaan tilaa ja alkuperäissairautta. - Metropolia  
  • Verikaasuanalyysi on tärkein laboratoriotutkimus anestesiologiassa ja tehohoidossa. Potilaan happeutumisen ja ventilaation riittävyyden arviointi perustuu toistettuun verikaasuanalyysiin. Toinen keskeinen tehtävä verikaasuanalyysillä on elimistön happo-emästasapainon respiratorisen ja metabolisen komponentin arviointi. - Finnanest
