Medical - Medical (general)
Spanish term or phrase: Pco2, p O2, Bic, EB
Abbreviations taken from a GAB - a blood gas analysis, I believe.

The results show:
pH 7.51, Pco2 27.6, p O2, 66.9, Bic 22, EB 0.6 Sat de O2 94.7%
The first and the last one are clear enough, but what are all the middle ones?

Thanks
