ABSTRACT Objectives: Normal delivery is the process of an expelled fetus from the uterus through the vagina. Caesarean section is the use of surgery to deliver one or more babies. Blood Gas analysis (BGA) is an important test to monitor the equilibrium conditions and the basic parameters for gas concentration, gas control, and breathability control. Methods: heparin tubes (2 ml) of blood for measurement of (PH, PCO2, PO2, Hct, SO2(est), tHb(est), Na+, K+, Ca++, Ca++(7.4), Cl-, HCO3-act, HCO3-std, BE(ecf), BE(B), BB(B), ctCO2, AnGap, CH+, mOsm, Glu, Lac). Results: significant increases were appearing in the level of sodium (Na+) in the caesarean section (C.S.), but the other parameters did not have any significant effect on the labor type. (2 ml) Were used to measure blood gas analysis. I wonder why this woman was entered to the Operations Hall. Conclusion: we conclude that the blood gas and serum electrolytes except Sodium had no effect on the type of delivery.
