A patient's mixed SvO2 is measured at 78%. How does the nurse interpret this information?
1. The patient's cardiac cells are not extracting normal amounts of oxygen.
2. Not enough oxygen is being delivered in arterial blood.
3. The patient's cells are likely adequately oxygenated.
4. Too much oxygen is being delivered to tissues.

The answer is 3
Rationales:
1. This is a mixed reading, so it is not possible to make specific statements about cardiac cells.
2. Because this is a normal reading, arterial oxygen supply is likely also normal.
3. Because this is a normal reading, it is likely that cells are being oxygenated normally.
4. There is no way to tell if "too much" oxygen is being delivered.
