What is CO2 Total assay used for?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a metabolic waste product of cellular respiration. Elevated levels of CO2 in the blood occur in hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis. CO2 levels rise with decreased alveolar ventilation due to diseases of the lungs or bronchial tree, or breathing CO2-enriched air. Depression of the overall lung capacity by certain drugs may lead to retention of CO2.

Levels of CO2 are regulated by the kidneys, with extreme levels indicating difficulty regulating pH. Elevated levels may be evident in chronic lung problems such as emphysema, whereas low levels may be seen in shock, starvation, kidney failure or chronic diarrhoea.
