Abstract

A typical instrument for determining blood gases and acid-base balance is a blood gas analysis. In order to monitor lung function and gas exchange with body cells, it detects the amounts of oxygen and carbon dioxide ina arterial blood. In this study, which looked at variables impacting the severity of COVID-19, 150 older men who worked in chemical plants in southern Jordan participated. The length of the shift, chemical exposure, smoking, and long-term conditions like diabetes affect symptom severity. Elderly COVID-19 patients frequently have lower amounts of oxygen and greater levels of carbon dioxide, which strains the lungs and increases the generation of red blood cells. In situations of hypoxia, underlying diseases may have an impact on hemoglobin levels. this study aims to provide valuable insights into the factors contributing to the severity of COVID-19 in elderly individuals, particularly those exposed to chemical environments, and the physiological responses involved in these cases
