Effects Of Uncompensated And Compensated Metabolic Acidosis On Canine Diaphragm.

Effects of uncompensated and compensated metabolic acidosis on canine diaphragm. We investigated the effects of metabolic acidosis and compensated metabolic acidosis on force of contraction of the diaphragm in anesthetized dogs. Mechanically ventilated animals were prepared with an open thorax. A balloon was positioned beneath the diaphragm to measure transdiaphragmatic pressure (Pdi), and a plaster cast was placed around the abdomen to maintain length and geometry of the diaphragm. The force of contraction was evaluated by measuring Pdi during supramaximal phrenic stimulation at different frequencies and also during spontaneous inspiratory efforts. In 13 dogs with an arterial pH (pHa) of 7.38 and arterial PCO2 (PaCO2) of 36.5 Torr, metabolic acidosis was produced by infusion of HCl until pHa equaled 6.98 and PaCO2 equaled 36.4 Torr. Pdi at all frequencies greater than 10 Hz was significantly reduced (P less than 0.05). The dogs were then hyperventilated until pHa was 7.34 and PaCO2 was 12.8 Torr. Pdi was significantly reduced again at all frequencies (P less than 0.05) except 5 Hz. The percent reduction in Pdi by compensated acidosis was significantly greater at low-frequency sti Continue reading >>

    Oh, Livestrong. Their articles constantly contradict each other (well, with multiple authors and questionable references it's to be expected), so I've learned to take everything I read there with a bag of salt.
    With that said, I DO have trouble sleeping ever since I started keto, but not due to exhaustion and/or stress like the article says. Rather, I'm too energetic at night. It could be ass o'clock in the morning and I'm still bouncing off the walls. I seem to be able to function fine on less sleep too, but I try to get my ~8 hours of sleep as much as possible. YMMV, of course.

    I have actually been waking up about 3 times in the middle of the night for the past few days. I just started keto 2 weeks ago. I wonder if that's why..

    Same for me. I re-started keto about a week and a half ago and have trouble staying asleep. My work schedule has changed from 7am-6pm x3 days to 3:30-10pm x5 days so I just attributed it to that. Perhaps not!

Partially compensated vs fully compensated abgs (arterial blood gas) interpretation NCLEX review for nurses. Learn how to distinguish partially or fully compensated arterial blood gas results using the tic tac toe method. The tic tac toe method can be used to interpret the arterial blood gas problems you will encounter on nursing lectures exam along with the NCLEX exam. After setting up the ABG problem with the tic tac toe method, you will be able to tell if the disorder is a respiratory or metabolic issue, alkalosis or acidosis, and fully, partially, or uncompensated.

Compensated Acidosis | Definition Of Compensated Acidosis By Medical Dictionary

Compensated acidosis | definition of compensated acidosis by Medical dictionary Also found in: Dictionary , Thesaurus , Encyclopedia . Related to compensated acidosis: acidotic 1. the accumulation of acid and hydrogen ions or depletion of the alkaline reserve (bicarbonate content) in the blood and body tissues, resulting in a decrease in pH. 2. a pathologic condition resulting from this process, characterized by increase in hydrogen ion concentration (decrease in pH). The optimal acid-base balance is maintained by chemical buffers, biologic activities of the cells, and effective functioning of the lungs and kidneys. The opposite of acidosis is alkalosis. adj., adj acidotic. Acidosis usually occurs secondary to some underlying disease process; the two major types, distinguished according to cause, are metabolic acidosis and respiratory acidosis (see accompanying table). In mild cases the symptoms may be overlooked; in severe cases symptoms are more obvious and may include muscle twitching, involuntary movement, cardiac arrhythmias, disorientation, and coma. In general, treatment consists of intravenous or oral administration of sodium bicarbonate or sodium lactate solutions and cor Continue reading >>

    I recently (couple weeks ago) started weights and also taking some protein powder (low carb - 1,8g per serving).
    As suggested I raised my protein intake and I'm somewhere around 1 to 1.2 protein ratio. Last couple days I used ketostix to test my ketones and it was negative. I'm sure I didn't exceed 20g carbs per day because I track all my food.
    Could that higher protein intake kick me out of ketosis?

    As far as I've been able to discover, there are no absolutely definitive answers to the excess protein => additional glucose => inhibition of ketosis? causal chain question.
    This is a good article: "If You Eat Excess Protein, Does It Turn Into Excess Glucose?" on ketotic.org.
    And here is a recent discussion on "After workout protein needs" on /r/ketogains.
    An important unresolved question is: is gluconeogenesis (the manufacture of new glucose by the liver using proteins and fat) a supply-driven process or a demand-driven process?
    If it is a supply-driven process, then it seems more plausible that excess consumption of protein will lead to higher blood sugar levels.
    But if it's demand-driven, then excess glucose might just be due to the slower removal of glucose from the blood-stream after protein has been eaten, causing a bit of a build-up.
    I think that it might vary a lot from person to person. The best is to measure your own blood ketone concentration before and after eating protein. (The ketostix method is not as reliable, particularly if you've just finished a work-out.)
    Edit: fixed link.

    It can, but it depends on various factors such as weight, activity level, etc.
    I asked the science behind it to to /u/gogge and he gave a very good explanation in another post.
    Fact is, if you are doing strength training you will need to increase your protein intake, otherwise you will not grow muscle. Also protein comes into play if you are eating at a deficit.
    If you are completely sure that protein is taking you out of ketosis, then drop your intake to 1.0 and see if you get back.
    How much do you weight, what % BF do you have, what kind of excercises are you doing and for how long?
    As a side note: don't rely on ketostsix to see if you are in or out of keto.
    *Edited for grammar.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... A clinical pathway, also known as care pathway, integrated care pathway, critical pathway, or care map, is one of the main tools used to manage the quality in healthcare concerning the standardisation of care processes. It has been shown that their implementation reduces the variability in clinical practice and improves outcomes. Clinical pathways aim to promote organised and efficient patient care based on evidence-based medicine, and aim to optimise outcomes in settings such as acute care and home care. A single clinical pathway may refer to multiple clinical guidelines on several topics in a well specified context. A clinical pathway is a multidisciplinary management tool based on evidence-based practice for a specific group of patients with a predictable clinical course, in which the different tasks (interventions) by the professionals involved in the pa

Metabolic Acidosis | Pathway Medicine

Metabolic Acidosis is a pathophysiological category of acidosis that refers to any cause of decreased ECF pH not due to a ventilatory defect (i.e. Respiratory Acidosis). Although the primary metabolic disturbance can cause a significant decrease in blood pH, respiratory compensatory mechanisms can largely correct the pH over several hours. The fundamental primary disturbance in a metabolic acidosis is a decrease in the levels of ECF bicarbonate concentration ([HCO3-]). Decreased bicarbonate results in an misalignment of the Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation for the bicarbonate buffer which largely determines the pH of the extracellular fluid. Mathematically, the reduced ECF pH results from an increase in the ratio between the partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2) relative to the ECF concentration of bicarbonate ([HCO3-]). More colloquially, metabolic acidoses are caused by a pathologic consumption of the weak base form of the bicarbonate buffer, that is bicarbonate (HCO3-), resulting in a decrease in ECF pH. Metabolic Acidoses can be compensated by the actions of the lungs which serve to realign the bicarbonate buffer Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation over a period of hour Continue reading >>

    (edit: it's worth pointing out that "Ketosis " on it's own is not a bad thing, but Diabetic ketoacidosis is. I assume this is the point of the question)
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis comes from High (hyper) Blood Sugar not Low (Hypo). They could happen together, if you had high blood sugar for too long, the Ketoacidosis happened then you over treated the high and it went low. In this case you'd have 2 separate problems. Hypoglaycemia and Ketoacidosis. Low blood sugar will make you pass out and go into a coma eventually. Ketoacidosis is very painful and horrible to be part of. But I wouldn't say they increase each others danger very much.

    Your response is private.

    Are you satisfied with this answer?


  2. Dennis Kitainik

    I'm not a doctor, but from what I know of diabetic conditions, both of these can be dangerous, and especially if they occur together (especially since ketosis would probably indicate serious hypoglycemia).
