Acid Base Status In Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Patients

Acid base status in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients 348 patients of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) were studied for their acid base profile using ABL-3 blood gas analyser (Radiometer, copenhagan). 185 patients (53.1%) had simple disorders (respiratory acidosis53%, respiratory alkalosis25.4%, metabolic acidosis11.3%, metabolic alkalosis10.2%). Mixed disorders were present in 131 patients (34.9%) (respiratory acidosis and metabolic acidosis75.2%, respiratory acidosis and metabolic acidosis14%, metabolic acidosis and metabolic alkalosis5.7%, metabolic alkalosis and respiratory alkalosis4.9%). Hypoxemia without other acid base abnormalities was observed in early patients of GOPD (42 patients12%). Chronic respiratory acidosis was the most common finding in advanced cases of COPD (98%). An almost equal number of such patients had a mixed disorder of respiratory acidosis with metabolic alkalosis (91%). Salt restriction, prolonged use of steriods and hypokalemia were often related to metabolic alkalosis in such patients.

    I've been dealing with daily bad insomnia for a while now - waking up with a racing heartbeat in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep. Never had these problems before keto, unwilling to give up the latter. I had my thyroid and hormone levels checked out, and the length and frequency of recurrence ruled out stress as a cause.
    Turns out, once I stopped drinking coffee and tea entirely, the insomnia went away and I've now slept through three full nights of blissful sleep. Posting under a throw-away because I feel a bit stupid for not ruling out such an obvious cause earlier, in the hope that it'll help the occasional other ketoer.

    No reason to feel stupid. If you could drink tea and coffee for years with no problem, why would you suspect they had suddenly "turned" on you? You know how people say their tolerance for alcohol is vastly diminished? I wonder if the same is true for lots of people with caffeine. (I have no science for this, and I offer no explanation, I have just noticed and I wonder.)
    Good for you for figuring it out!

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

Why Does Emphysema Cause Respiratory Alkalosis?

SDN members see fewer ads and full resolution images. Join our non-profit community! Why does emphysema cause respiratory ALKALOSIS? I get that in chronic bronchitis, the mucus plugs up the bronchioles and makes it hard for CO2 to get out, so PCO2 goes up and pH goes down. Since emphysema is also an obstructive lung disease, why does PCO2 not go up there as well? (Goljan pg 304) Easiest way to remember is that Emphysema, Asthma and COPD are obstructive pulmonary diseases which reduce FEV/FVC and thus you retain CO2 because you can't expire it as quickly. That's why the guys with really bad COPD turn blue. As for emphysema, you could theoretically become alkalotic but only because CO2's diffusion rate is limited only by surface area. But I doubt it. I get that in chronic bronchitis, the mucus plugs up the bronchioles and makes it hard for CO2 to get out, so PCO2 goes up and pH goes down. Since emphysema is also an obstructive lung disease, why does PCO2 not go up there as well? Don't remember ever learning this. I've always thought decrease CO2 expired--> chronic respiratory acidosis. May be wrong, but I don't think I am in this case. I believe, emphysema blows out alveoli (not rea Continue reading >>

    I'm going to a wedding next Friday and the dress I bought is a bit tight (curse my boobs!). It zips with a bit of hassle but I'd like to try to lose as much as I can before the wedding to not have to constantly worry about the zipper popping open. The next size up is sold out so that's not an option.
    What can I do/eat to maximize weight loss for these next 7 days? I'm not going to drink anything but water (bye Splenda sweetened iced tea :( ) in hopes that it will help cut down on any bloating.
    Thanks!

    You can look into various types of fasting: intermittent fasting, fat fasting, and water fasting.
    Personally, I cannot recommend fat fasting enough.
    800-1000 calories per day in 4-5 meals. Each meal is 200 calories and about 90% (or as close as you can get) of those calories are from fat. You can google "fat fasting" to find out more and do your own research on whether it would be a good option for you.
    Every time I successfully fat fast, it puts me in heavy ketosis right away and I lose 0.5-1.5 lb for each day of it. I'm around 100lbs and if I slack on my diet and get to 105, a week of fat fasting with minor exercise gets me back to 100. It's not easy to spend a week eating strange meals like straight coconut oil and cream cheese, but it works. (YMMV)

    you're the first keto-er i've ever met so thin! and as i'm a keto-er around your weight, i'm really curious how do you deal with this diet/ and the lack of body fat, at least not a substantial one?

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.

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.

Acid-base balance disturbance from alveolar hypoventilation Rapid production of carbon dioxide Failure of ventilation increases partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2) Respiratory acidosis can be acute or chronic In acute respiratory acidosis: PaCO2 is > 45 mm Hg with accompanying acidemia (pH < 7.35) In chronic respiratory acidosis: PaCO2 is > 45 mm HG with normal/near-normal pH (renal compensation) and serum bicarbonate levels > 30 mEq/L Treatment directed at underlying disorder/pathophysiologic process Caution: too-rapid correction of hypercapnia can result in metabolic alkalemia CSF alkalization can result in seizures Due to alveolar hypoventilation from any cause CNS depression causing impaired ventilation most common cause Lung diseases causing abnormal alveolar gas exchange usually don't cause hypoventilation Stimulate ventilation and hypocapnia 2 degrees to hypoxia Hypercapnia only occurs if severe disease, respiratory muscle fatigue Accompanying acidemia (can be severe) Only acute compensatory response is intracellular buffering CNS: CVA, infection, trauma, tumor Pulmonary: PNA, COPD, PTX, PE.

    Keto insomnia?

    I've been doing this for 5 days now and I had a lot of trouble sleeping unlike before where I had no trouble falling asleep. Have any of you experienced this?

    Yea when I was "adjusting" I kept getting massive headaches and feverish. I woke up every two hours if I was sleeping reasonably well, and sometimes I just drifted in and out of consciousness by the minutes. It's passed now, but I don't remember it taking 5 days.

    How long have you been doing it?
    Maybe it takes longer for me because my metabolism is more screwed up eheh. I've been a mega-sugar addict all my life. This is a HUGE change for me. At least, I don't feel as sluggish now as I did on day 3 so that's pretty good!
