The physiological principle is that there is little time for oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange in blood flowing through a dilated capillary bed, so the sample drawn has approximately the same acid-base balance as that in the arteries. Oxygen values in capillary samples do not correlate with arterial samples, so the PO2 values in capillary blood gases are of no clinical use (22).
