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.

Respiratory Acidosis

What is respiratory acidosis? Respiratory acidosis is a condition that occurs when the lungs can’t remove enough of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by the body. 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). Respiratory acidosis is typically caused by an underlying disease or condition. This is also called respiratory failure or ventilatory failure. Normally, the lungs take in oxygen and exhale CO2.

    Hello all cat lovers and experts! My daughter is a proud mommy, I'm the proud grandmommy, of 2 8 yr. old brother and sister cats. Our little girl cat was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis about 3 wks ago. We've had our baaad days and we've had our good days. Today we're having a VERY BAD day. She can't hold her head up and wants just to lay. We've been through an overnight stay at a horrible vet clinic, we 'rescued' her from that hell hole and found another vet pronto. We are new to the area so we don't have the luxury that we had, a 7 yr. relationship with a great vet, so we have to 'go with the flow'. now this new vet sees the extent we are willing to go to and has worked with us, instructing us in an array of necessary treatments so we can do many things at home. We did spend 2 wks visiting twice daily before she realized we really are serious, and she had made enough money to meet her
    goal. She eating, drinking water, my daughter has checked her blood sugar, it was 243 on a human meter, but she is still hanging her head, not walking steadliy, and wanting just to lay. She's had her insulin shot and has slept about and hour and a half and is now back up eating but the head is still drooping! Any an all conversation, advice would be warmly welcome. Love Grandmommy Lynn Phillips

    That doesn't sound good at all. If you don't want to take her to an emergency clinic or your vet right now at least get another blood glucose reading. Make sure to get it right away and don't stress her out at all. How is her water intake? What insulin is she on and what amount? Was she treated for the ketoacidosis in the hospital? Is she on Pepcid? What is she eating?
    A droopy diabetic or any cat is not a good thing nor a thing that should wait.

    Please take your cat back to the vet for treatment. There is little you can do at home for your cat. Being lethargic and unable to walk normally is cause for concern. Here is some basic info about ketoacidosis and how it is generally treated: http://www.felinediabetes.com/ketones.htm Go to another vet office if you didn't like the other place.
    Can you test the blood glucose level again? If you can, go to the pharmacy and buy some KetoStix or KetoDiastix to test the urine for ketones. Any amount of ketones needs immediate vet treatment.

Respiratory Acidosis

Respiratory acidosis is a medical emergency in which decreased ventilation (hypoventilation) increases the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood and decreases the blood's pH (a condition generally called acidosis). Carbon dioxide is produced continuously as the body's cells respire, and this CO2 will accumulate rapidly if the lungs do not adequately expel it through alveolar ventilation. Alveolar hypoventilation thus leads to an increased PaCO2 (a condition called hypercapnia). The increase in PaCO2 in turn decreases the HCO3−/PaCO2 ratio and decreases pH. Terminology[edit] Acidosis refers to disorders that lower cell/tissue pH to < 7.35. Acidemia refers to an arterial pH < 7.36.[1] Types of respiratory acidosis[edit] Respiratory acidosis can be acute or chronic. In acute respiratory acidosis, the PaCO2 is elevated above the upper limit of the reference range (over 6.3 kPa or 45 mm Hg) with an accompanying acidemia (pH <7.36). In chronic respiratory acidosis, the PaCO2 is elevated above the upper limit of the reference range, with a normal blood pH (7.35 to 7.45) or near-normal pH secondary to renal compensation and an elevated serum bicarbonate (HCO3− >30 mm Hg).

The i-gel O2 Resus Pack is the new airway management solution from Intersurgical. Designed for use in-hospital, pre-hospital or in emergency medicine, the pack includes everything an EMS professional needs to prepare, insert and secure the i-gel O2: a modified i-gel, sachet of lubricant, airway support strap and a suction tube. We have developed and enhanced the original i-gel design, so in addition to being able to deliver standard ventilation through the main airway channel, the i-gel O2 can also be used to deliver passive oxygenation through its integral supplementary oxygen port as part of a Cardio Cerebral Resuscitation (CCR) protocol. More about i-gel and airways/resuscitation science on our Facebook Page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Inters...

This is an elderly man with vomiting for 3 days, who presents with tachycardia. It would be expected that there be a metabolic alkalosis with loss of gastric contents. His pH shows an alkalosis and he has raised bicarb. He is hypokalaemic and hypocloraemic, with a raised BSL. The Na is low, when corrected for increased BSL it is 134. With this metabolic alkalosis the expected pCO2 is (0.9 x HCO3) + 16 = 43. The actual pCO2 is 28.5. Therefore this is a mixed picture ofMetabolic and Respiratory Alkalosis i.e.,he has his metabolic alkalosis but is also breathing up more than he should. Expected Aa gradient is age/4 +4 = 22.5 so a very high Aa gradient indicating a V/Q mismatch, or diffusion defect. So when we think of causes, take both things into account- the vomiting and the Aa.

    So yeah, throwaway, but I have been on Keto for more than 1.5 years at this point. In total I've lost about 75 pounds, which is great but this post isn't about that.
    Recently I've been more social, which is good as well, but I keep getting the impression that I'm having some body odor issues.
    I shower every day, brush my teeth twice a day, etc. However, I did not use deodorant. I recently started, but it doesn't seem to help (either because I smell that bad, or the deodorant itself smells bad).
    All of this is compounded by the fact that it doesn't smell bad to me, (perhaps a very light smell, but nothing others would be able to detect unless they're literally sticking their nose in my armpit.) and people who I trust not to lie to me don't think I smell bad either. HOWEVER, those people live with me... could they be desensitized to it?
    This is all really frustrating, and it's getting to my head. I have a couple of theories... One, I've actually been less strict lately, so perhaps there have been times where I've slipped out of ketosis and back in again... which might induce odor? I really don't know, but I need help.
    What can I do to combat Keto breath/B.O.?

    Could it be that the reason people are avoiding being close to you is from another reason? Based on the limited information we know from your post, it sounds like you may have not always been a social person and your perception that people are avoiding your close proximity could be true due to another reason such as behavior. I have noticed sometimes people with limited socialization tend to not always pick up on social cues such as proper distancing, ability to converse casually or sometimes have odd mannerisms. I would assume that those who know you and you trust would share with you if you smelled but they themselves be unaware of issues such as these either because they are adjusted to you or vice versa.
    I don't think continuing to improve your hygiene can hurt but honestly if you haven't always been a social person, it may just take practice and time. I would try and focus less on the reasoning why other people do things and just assume that the reasoning they are leaving is unrelated to you unless somebody specifically tells you. People are assholes and if you really smell, someone will tell you.

    I can't tell you that it's impossible that they are reacting to my social awkwardness, but I'm not that bad. I can carry a conversation if I want to do so, I know how to control my reactions, etc.
