Can anyone explain or give references to alveolar arterial ratios on blood gas results in babies.

I understand the higher the "number" the worse it is & it indicates the infant has a right to left shunt.

So, is it that significant, especially when one gas the ratio is normal & 3 hours later it is elevated?????
