Acid-Base Disturbances

HideShow resource information
What inputs are there that contribute to PCO2?
CO2 from tissues
1 of 7
What inputs are there that contribute to [HCO3-]?
Net renal bicarbonate regeneration
2 of 7
What outputs are there that contribute to PCO2?
CO2 excreted at the lungs
3 of 7
What outputs are there that contribute to [HCO3-]?
Bicarbonate lost buffering endogenously produced acid
4 of 7
What type of acid-base disturbances are there?
Metabolic alkalosis, metabolic acidosis, acute respiratory alkalosis, chronic respiratory alkalosis, acute respiratory acidosis and chronic respiratory acidosis
5 of 7
How come with chronic respiratory acidosis the pH doesn't change too drastically from normal?
There's more time for renal correction so pH isn't too low
6 of 7
How come with acute respiratory acidosis the pH changes a lot?
It's a short term problem so there is no correction from the kidney
