Excess CO2 causes the pH of blood and other bodily fluids to decrease, making them too acidic. Normally, the body is able to balance the ions that control acidity. This balance is measured on a pH scale from 0 to 14. Acidosis occurs when the pH of the blood falls below 7.35 (normal blood pH is between 7.35 and 7.45).Rinku Chaudhary NSG officer AMU ALIGARH https://www.facebook.com/rinkutch/ Respiratory acidosis is typically caused by an underlying disease or condition. This is also called respiratory failure or ventilatory failure. Suctioning https://youtu.be/hMJGkxvXTW0 Normally, the lungs take in oxygen and exhale CO2. Oxygen passes from the lungs into the blood. CO2 passes from the blood into the lungs. However, sometimes the lungs cant remove enough CO2. This may be due to a decrease in respiratory rate or decrease in air movement due to an underlying condition such as: asthma COPD pneumonia sleep apnea TYPES Forms of respiratory acidosis There are two forms of respiratory acidosis: acute and chronic. Acute respiratory acidosis occurs quickly. Its a medical emergency. Left untreated, symptoms will get progressively worse. It can become life-threatening. Chronic respiratory acidosis develops over time. It doesnt cause symptoms. Instead, the body adapts to the increased acidity. For example, the kidneys produce more bicarbonate to help maintain balance. Chronic respiratory acidosis may not cause symptoms. Developing another illness may cause chronic respiratory acidosis to worsen and become acute respiratory acidosis. SYMPTOMS Symptoms of respiratory acidosis Initial signs of acute respiratory acidosis include: headache anxiety blurred vision restlessness confusion Without treatment, other symptoms may occur. These include: https://www.healthline.com/health/res... sleepiness or fatigue lethargy delirium or confusion shortness of breath coma The chronic form of respiratory acidosis doesnt typically cause any noticeable symptoms. Signs are subtle and nonspecific and may include: memory loss sleep disturbances personality changes CAUSES Common causes of respiratory acidosis The lungs and the kidneys are the major organs that help regulate your bloods pH. The lungs remove acid by exhaling CO2, and the kidneys excrete acids through the urine. The kidneys also regulate your bloods concentration of bicarbonate (a base). Respiratory acidosis is usually caused by a lung disease or condition that affects normal breathing or impairs the lungs ability to remove CO2. Some common causes of the chronic form are: asthma chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) acute pulmonary edema severe obesity (which can interfere with expansion of the lungs) neuromuscular disorders (such as multiple sclerosis or muscular dystrophy) scoliosis Some common causes of the acute form are: lung disorders (COPD, emphysema, asthma, pneumonia) conditions that affect the rate of breathing muscle weakness that affects breathing or taking a deep breath obstructed airways (due to choking or other causes) sedative overdose cardiac arrest DIAGNOSIS How is respiratory acidosis diagnosed? The goal of diagnostic tests for respiratory acidosis is to look for any pH imbalance, to determine the severity of the imbalance, and to determine the condition causing the imbalance. Several tools can help doctors diagnose respiratory acidosis. Blood gas measurement Blood gas is a series of tests used to measure oxygen and CO2 in the blood. A healthcare provider will take a sample of blood from your artery. High levels of CO2 can indicate acidosis.

Prevent Respiratory Acidosis In Calves

Plan ahead to ventilate a newborn calf's lungs and keep it healthy during birth. As soon as a newborn calf is delivered, focus on establishing respiration. Cattle producers expecting a calf crop should take time now to review procedures to combat respiratory acidosis in newborn calves . Calves with respiratory acidosis are unable to rid their lungs of excess carbon dioxide its body produces and are less able to obtain nutrients from colostrum . Every baby calf born is in a situation where there is a build-up of carbon dioxide and its byproduct, lactic acid, during the delivery process, says Glenn Selk, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension cattle reproduction specialist. Delayed passage through the birth canal in the face of uterine contractions that pinch off the umbilical cord compromises oxygenation of the calf. Although the calf is able to breathe as soon as its nose passes the lips of the vulva, expansion of the calfs chest is restricted in the narrow birth canal. Continuous forced traction can seriously aggravate the situation, Selk says. As soon as the calfs head has passed the lips of the vulva, traction should be interrupted, the nostrils cleared of mucus and co Continue reading >>

    Hi- Wondering if anyone has tried a Ketogenic diet while breastfeeding. I've done a little sleuthing online and haven't found a whole lot of info on if it affects the quality of the breast milk. I did read in a forum however, that Ketones do not actually make it into the breast milk.
    For what its worth, I am nursing an 11 month old about 3 or 4 times a day and he eats 3 solid meals a day plus snacks. I have about 50 lbs that I need to lose (I am in the obese category), and I feel totally unhealthy. While I was pregnant, I ate strictly Paleo (plus potatoes) for just a month and felt fantastic but felt uncomfortable about the amount of meat you are supposed to eat.
    (Before you tell me that I just need to eat healthy and count my calories, I have tried all that before and it is just too tedious for me to count and measure for a sustained period of time and gets me very little results, if any. I will lose about 1 or 2 lbs in a month, and then plateau. I already know that doesn't work for me. I need something that will give me results to help motivate me to stick with it)
    The plan I am considering is this one, based on a whole foods diet: http://www.healthfulpursuit.com/shop/the-keto-beginning/

    I worry that a ketogenic diet is hard on your kidneys, and this diet plan doesn't seem any easier than any other sort of plan to me.

‘dummy Calf’ May Be Suffering From Acidosis

Most people who have dealt with beef cows at calving time have occasionally had to deal with a weak, dopey calf. These calves may be unable to stand or have difficulty standing without assistance. They have poor muscle tone and seem to have no idea where to put their feet or how to stand or move. Most of them seem dopey and are unable to suckle, even when given a bottle or having a teat placed in their mouths. These “dummy calves,” also called “weak calves,” require a great deal of care and attention to get through the first few days of life and are often a major inconvenience at a busy time of year. A variety of conditions can make a newborn calf appear weak, including selenium deficiency, hypothermia, infectious disease and trauma, such as being stepped or laid on. Weak calf syndrome has also been associated with cows in poor body condition in late pregnancy that are being fed inadequate protein or energy. However, a common cause for the weak “dummy calf” is a condition known as acidosis. It refers to a drop in the pH of the blood, which can be triggered by a lack of oxygen that might occur during a difficult calving. Calves under normal calving conditions go through Continue reading >>

Rumen Acidosis In Calves: Part Iii

A new Calf Note (#173) has been posted at Calf Notes.com. In previous Calf Notes (#170, #172), Dr. Jim Quigley proposed the idea that subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA) is prevalent in young calves during the rumen development process and this phenomenon reduces fiber digestion, increases risk of diarrhea, and possibly, contributes to increased risk of health problems. He also suggested that physical form of the diet and choice of ingredients in starters and exclusion of forage might contribute to SARA. The new Calf Note looks in depth at research to determine effects of form of ration (pelleted vs. mash) and amount of fiber (low, high) on rumen development and incidence of rumen acidosis. "Producers can improve the digestive efficiency of calves fed highly fermentable starters by ensuring regular consumption throughout the day (i.e., make sure feed is always available), providing an adequate supply of free water, sufficient bunk space (if calves are housed in groups), and ensuring that calves have sufficient passive immunity to avoid disease and get off to a good start," Quigley says. For more information, read Calf Note #173 "Effects of rumen acidosis on digestion in calves." A fut Continue reading >>

    Here is the formula for anion gap:

    I would think that the doctor would be monitoring the glucose level (not the agap) to determine when to stop the insulin drip. Anyone else have an idea?
