Interpreting Abgs | Ausmed | Tips For Nurses

Arterial blood gasses, or ABGs, may be among the most complex and confusing parts of nursing practice. Everyone can read an electrolyte level, but when faced with a list of ABGs, most nurses wilt. Fortunately, there are some easy ways to remember how to decipher these important lab results. Without knowing them, your patient could easily go downhill when the answer was in front of you all along. These easy questions are all you need to know in order to interpret ABGs effectively and help your patient, should a problem arise. Firstly, it is important to know what values you are looking at and what is considered normal. The first value is the pH, which measures how many hydrogen ions are in the sample. This determines if the blood is acidotic or alkalotic. Normal values for pH range from 7.35 to 7.45. The next value is the carbon dioxide level, and this will tell you if the problem is a respiratory one. Normal range for CO2 is 35 to 45mmHg. Finally, bicarbonate ions, or HCO3-, will tell you if the problem is related to metabolic changes in your patient. Normal is considered to be from 22 to 26mmol/L. When the numbers fall out of these ranges, you use them to determine what type of p Continue reading >>

    I've been philosophizing about this whole thing with ketosis. We all realize that when you are entering ketosis, your body experiences a lot of stress, since it practically imitates starvation. So maybe you feel your best being in ketosis for survival reasons. 20,000 years ago, when you didn't have food around for a long time, your body would be in this highest performance state possible to give you an opportunity to hunt more efficiently. I don't know What do you think?

Acid-base Disorders - Endocrine And Metabolic Disorders - Merck Manuals Professional Edition

(Video) Overview of Acid-Base Maps and Compensatory Mechanisms By James L. Lewis, III, MD, Attending Physician, Brookwood Baptist Health and Saint Vincents Ascension Health, Birmingham Acid-base disorders are pathologic changes in carbon dioxide partial pressure (Pco2) or serum bicarbonate (HCO3) that typically produce abnormal arterial pH values. Acidosis refers to physiologic processes that cause acid accumulation or alkali loss. Alkalosis refers to physiologic processes that cause alkali accumulation or acid loss. Actual changes in pH depend on the degree of physiologic compensation and whether multiple processes are present. Primary acid-base disturbances are defined as metabolic or respiratory based on clinical context and whether the primary change in pH is due to an alteration in serum HCO3 or in Pco2. Metabolic acidosis is serum HCO3< 24 mEq/L. Causes are Metabolic alkalosis is serum HCO3> 24 mEq/L. Causes are Respiratory acidosis is Pco2> 40 mm Hg (hypercapnia). Cause is Decrease in minute ventilation (hypoventilation) Respiratory alkalosis is Pco2< 40 mm Hg (hypocapnia). Cause is Increase in minute ventilation (hyperventilation) Compensatory mechanisms begin to correct t Continue reading >>

    Hi All,
    Here I go again, bouncing back out of bed...can't sleep... wide awake and full of energy...
    This started when I went into ketosis 4 or 5 days ago and nothing is helping at night.(Love my new found energy during the day but not at 10:00p!) I barely have any caffeine in my diet, perhaps 1/4 c coffee in the morning, so that's not it. Tried melatonin, doesn't work for me. I even tried an Ambien (which is my last resort) and even that didn't make me bat an eyelash.
    That's a bad case of insomnia.
    The biggest problem is that after tossing and turning all night I finally fall into a deep sleep at about 4:00am and then my confused body wants to sleep to 9:00am. This isn't working out so well with the rest of my life and family :help: any ideas?

    I'm not personally affected by this, but I did a Google search and it seems that insomnia is a normal side effect to being in ketosis. It does however appear to only last until your body is used to being in ketosis. It doesn't say how long that's for, but my guess is that it depends on the person - unfortunately.
    Good night! I hope you get some sleep :)

    Thanks for your research, I saw a bit of that too. Also seems like quite a few people sleep better with ketosis :confused:
    Tonight I tried the age old trick of warm milk - only this time it was warm unsweetened Almond Milk. That at least got me into a light, fitful tossing / turning sleep by midnight, only to be awakened at 3:15 by a 3.9 Earthquake in Montana 800 miles away. :rolleyes: Small slam(!) and a shake was all it took - popped right up on that one, wide awake once again.
    So, here I am 4:10am. 2 ounces of turkey later (Tryptophan anyone? :lol: ) starting to get a little sleepy....can't sleep in till 9 today unfortunately.
    night night for now :yawn:

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.

    I'm a 48 year old male. 240 pounds, 6' 1", between 20 and 25% body fat.
    I'm somewhat active, no health issues, big frame, decent muscle development. I've always watched my carbs and generally eat lower amounts of carbs compared to a regular diet.
    My goal is to reach 200 pounds, 10% bf.
    Last week I started a semi serious keto diet. I'm not counting my calories or carbs, I just eliminated as many carbs as was convenient. I was consuming way more than 20grms a day. Probably 50-60 grams.
    I don't know whether it was the diet change or it would have happened otherwise, but I developed a sore inflamed throat and fever (keto flu ?) that persisted for 5 days. I'm just getting over it now.
    I also developed a terrible metallic taste in my mouth. So bad that I lost my appetite entirely. The metallic taste was so bad that I couldn't eat anything. Normally I like a beer with my dinner as a treat, but I could barely tolerate even a sip.
    I also developed severe cotton mouth. My mouth was severely dry at night and drinking water frequently didn't seem to help. I think this is how I developed the sore throat.
    I was also peeing excessively. Like every hour, though sometimes the volume wasn't large.
    After a few days of these symptoms I had no choice but to increase my carbs. It has been 2 days now since I increased my carbs. I feel better but the metallic taste still lingers. My throat is now much better, though I seem to have some swelling on the lymph glands in my neck.
    So... is the keto diet the cause of any of this ? Am I doing something wrong ? Is there a way to get rid of the metallic taste ? Is there a way to prevent the cotton mouth ?

    I don't know if you already knew about this, but this sub has a Wiki page:
    Metallic Taste/Breath
    Keto Flu and Electrolytes
    Everything you're describing is normal if you're not tracking your macro- and micro-nutrients. I'd recommend tracking your intake and supplementing electrolytes as necessary.
