The pH of blood is normally kept constant by a series of buffers and by the bodys ability to excrete excess acid through the lungs and kidneys. The main buffering system is the bicarbonate-carbonic acid buffer, which is described by the following reaction: Normal ABG values for the pH, PaCO2, and HCO3- are as follows: The following steps are followed in working out acid-base problems. Also there are nomograms, and PDA programs (medmath) that calculate and interpret these problems. Pt. has vomiting (metabolic alkalosis), diarrhea (metabolic acidosis), renal failure (metabolic acidosis), toxic ingestion (metabolic acidosis), respiratory failure (respiratory acidosis), hyperventilation (respiratory alkalosis) or a combination of these?

What is ALKALOSIS? What does ALKALOSIS mean? ALKALOSIS meaning - ALKALOSIS pronunciation - ALKALOSIS definition - ALKALOSIS explanation - How to pronounce ALKALOSIS? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Alkalosis is the result of a process reducing hydrogen ion concentration of arterial blood plasma (alkalemia). In contrast to acidemia (serum pH 7.35 or lower), alkalemia occurs when the serum pH is higher than normal (7.45 or higher). Alkalosis is usually divided into the categories of respiratory alkalosis and metabolic alkalosis or a combined respiratory/metabolic alkalosis. Respiratory alkalosis is caused by hyperventilation, resulting in a loss of carbon dioxide. Compensatory mechanisms for this would include increased dissociation of the carbonic acid buffering intermediate into hydrogen ions, and the related excretion of bicarbonate, both of which lower blood pH. Hyperventilation-induced alkalosis can be seen in several deadly central nervous system diseases such as strokes or Rett syndrome. Metabolic alkalosis can be caused by rep

Ep9: Acidosis Alkalosis And Ph

Grab My Cheatsheet! Ready to Make Lab Values Quick and Easily Accessible? Use Skeletons! Alkalosis has a K, therefore it is Kicking the pH UP! Acidosis has a D, therefore it is dropping the pH DOWN! Ready to Make Lab Values Quick and Easily Accessible? Use Skeletons! Alright so this next memory device is to help you remember the location on the pH scale for alkalosis and acidosis. And it can be hard to remember in picture which one is on which side of that little scale. So, if you can remember that alkalosis has a K in it. Therefore, its kicking the pH up. So, alkalosis has a K in the word, therefore, its kicking the pH up. And then, if you can remember, acidosis has a D in it. Therefore, its dropping the pH down. So, lets go over that again. Alakalosis has a K, therefore, its kicking the pH up. Acidosis has a D, therefore its dropping the pH down. Alkalosis, K, kicking the pH up. Acidosis has a D, therefore, it is dropping the pH down.

    I adopted a low glycemic diet after a friend saw such positive results. In the beginning my purpose was to try gluten free, but my picky diet turned out to comply with the atkins diet and I lost some weight during the process. I’m a slender person and didn’t intend to lose weight. Anyway…after I figured out the diet better and started including lots of raw vegetables and fruit with my protien I began to feel better than I did in my early twenties (I’m 40 now). Needless to say I am a changed man and will never go back to my old diet.

    but now I have a question. I think my adopted diet sometimes puts me in ketosis. A few weeks ago my urine looked orange and I googled it. Google said that ketosis could cause orange urine and it seemed like a real possibility so I assume that’s what it was. Yesterday I ate an apple for breakfast, 10 oz sirloin with fries and green beans for lunch, and then 20 oz of great greens juice at jamba juice around three o’clock. At 7pm I urinated and it smelled sweet and fruity, not the usual “urine smell”. So I googled that and all my results mentioned ketoacidosis and diabetes. I’m a little unnerved about it. Should I be? Does ketosis change urine odor like this?

  2. 4dml

    Urine in ketosis may smell different. Though it’s not usually a different color. Non diabetics cannot get into ketoacidosis via diet. No how, no way. But many folks are diabetic and don’t know it. If you have any doubt, get tested. ASAP.

  3. infromsea

    Some sources state that only those with type I diabetes can suffer ketoacidosis.
    Other sources state that those with type II diabetes can suffer ketoacidosis but it’s rare.
    Are you a diagnosed diabetic? They used to diagnose diabetes via “sweet urine” (they would taste it).
    If you had that many carbs early in the day, I’d highly doubt you are in suffering from ketoacidosis. When I’m in heavy ketosis (say fasting for several days) my urine does NOT smell fruity, honestly, it stinks, but that’s just ancedotal evidence for me, not a hard and fast rule for anyone else.

    Sometimes it’s best to go on how you feel, not what DR Google worries you about.

Medicowesome: Approach To Acid Base Disorders: Metabolic Alkalosis Notes

Approach to acid base disorders: Metabolic alkalosis notes In suspected metabolic alkalosis, always check urinary chloride levels. Metabolic alkalosis associated with a reduction in the ECV (Vomiting, diuretics): There will be a stimulus for Na and Cl reabsorption to replenish extracellular volume. Administration of NaCl and water leads to correction of the metabolic alkalosis. Such causes of metabolic alkalosis are said to be saline responsive. Metabolic alkalosis associated with an expanded volume state (Mineralocorticoid excess, Barrters, Gitelman syndrome): There is no stimulus forNa and Cl reabsorption. The urinary Cl will be high ( > 40 meq/L). Administration of saline would not correct the alkalosis. Such causes of metabolic alkalosis are said to be saline resistant. Check blood pressure in saline resistant metabolic alkalosis: Mineralocorticoid excess states tend to be associated with hypertension. Exogenous alkali load, Barrters and Gitelman's syndrome are associated with normal blood pressure. I had an interesting practice question about an anorexic bulimic patient, the tough part was differentiating alkalosis due to vomiting and alkalosis due to laxative abuse. They can Continue reading >>

    For the past week I've been on a Keto diet and my net carbs stay under 20 g, and I tested my urine on a KetoStick and got dark colors, showing that there's traces of ketones in their which is great.
    I read online that the first two weeks should be strict keto with no cheat meals, etc. BUT after two weeks, is it okay to have a meal or day with more carbs than I'm eating now?
    For those of you on Keto, do you have cheat meals once a week or load up on carbs every two weeks?
    Please let me know! I am new to this and am eager to learn. Thank you to all that reply.

  2. kiramaniac

    I don't. Your body has an immediate reaction to those carbs - you add back weight (yes, mostly water) and get kicked out of ketosis. For me, I just haven't had an occasion that it seemed worth it to me.
    After re-reading your post - "is it okay to have a meal or day with more carbs than I'm eating now?". So the answer there is probably more firmly yes. I think for most people, they can have up to 50 g carbs with limited impact.
    So I think it all depends on how crazy you get on that cheat day.

  3. iDustball

    I would say no. Here's how I've come to understand it. When your body is in Ketosis, fat stores are going to be your primary source of energy. When you reintroduce carbs back into your system and you're just starting out keto, your body had to break them down separately and restarts itself on using sugar/carbs as fuel.
    People that have been in Ketosis for a while usually hop right back into Ketosis after a intended or accidental carb day pretty quickly, but the best practice is to avoid it entirely. Carbs were the main cause for being overweight in the first place, no reason to let them back in.

    This patient's elevated blood pH and decrease in PaCO2 is consistent with acute respiratory alkalosis. Respiratory acid-base disorders are caused by primary changes in PaCO2, whereas metabolic acid-base disorders are due to primary changes in the concentration of HCO3-. A primary rise in PaCO2 or a fall in plasma HCO3- reduces the pH (acidemia), whereas the opposite increase the pH (alkalemia). Patients suffering from pneumonia can have tachypne ...
