Arterial Blood Gases (abg) Calculator

Enter the Partial Pressure of Carbon Dioxide (PaCO2): The arterial blood gases calculator calculates whether an individual is in metabolic acidosis, metabolic alkalosis, respiratory acidosis, respiratory alkalosis, or is normal. The calculator also determines whether the state is compensated or uncompensated. Arterial blood gases are blood taken from an artery, normally the radial artery, which determines how well oxygenated a person's blood is. Arterial blood gases determine the pH of the the person's blood, the bicarbonatelevel of a person's blood, and the amount of carbon dioxide in a person's blood. It can also tell the amount of oxygen in a person's blood, but we don't use the level of oxygenation to determine the state the person is in. So the first thing an arterial blood gas can tell is the pH of the blood. This is huge and alone determines whether the person is in an acidotic state or an alkalotic state. Normal blood pH ranges from 7.35 to 7.45. If the person's pH is below 7.35, the person is in an acidotic state. If the person's pH is above 7.45, the person is in an alkalotic state. So the pH is the first thing we look at to determine what state- acidotic or alkalotic- a Continue reading >>

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24012088 interesting study on biotin levels in keto mice. i just started supplementing, but i'm not sure how it will effect me.

    Supplementation is hit and miss, mostly miss. Avoiding stuff that fucks with biotin uptake is a gazillion times more effective than adding more of it. Think of the whole Vit C bullshit.
    Conclusion doesn't make sense to me, can't see the full text but willing to bet the ketogenic diet used was the usual shitty plant oil with incomplete protein profile stuff that typically shows up in any study where a keto diet demonstrates a deficiency.

    To quote from the full text:
    In Japan, the version of this diet given to infants with drug resistant epilepsy is called the ketone formula. However, we determined that the biotin content of the ketone formula is 0.07 mg/100 kcal,which is lower than the recommended dietary amount (1.50 mg/100 kcal)... Thus, infants who consume the ketone formula are expected to suffer from biotin deficiency. Therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the effects of the ketogenic diet on biotin status in mice.
    The components of the KBD diet (g/kg) were as follows:
    egg white, 476;
    cysteine, 3.6;
    sucrose, 55;
    soybean oil, 20;
    lard, 330;
    non-nutritive cellulose, 66.1;
    mineral mixture, 35;
    and vitamin mixture (excluding biotin), 10.
    Egg white is the sole protein source. And egg white doesn't have biotin, it's all in the yolk.
    There's enough biotin in meat (especially organ meats like liver and kidneys), fish, eggs (egg yolks) and cheese, to forget about any sort of deficiency.
    EDIT: And to quote from wikipedia article on Biotin:
    The first demonstration of biotin deficiency in animals was observed in animals fed raw egg white. Rats fed egg white protein were found to develop dermatitis, alopecia and neuromuscular dysfunction. This syndrome, called egg white injury, was discovered to be caused by a glycoprotein found in egg white, avidin. Avidin denatures upon heating (cooking). This protein binds extremely well with biotin, making it unavailable for use in enzymatic reactions.
    So yeah, when your sole protein source lacks in biotin and actively prevents the body from getting any biotin, you may be in trouble.
