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.

    :] Hello all!
    I've been on ketosis for about 3 days (this being the 4th), and can't quite tell if I'm in Ketosis or not, even after a ton of Googling. I guess I'll start by listing my symptoms..
    No appetite
    Trouble sleeping
    Fruity taste in mouth
    Dizziness the first 2 days
    Slight nausea this morning (4th day)
    My confusion is that I'm not thirsty at all, I maybe don't eat enough fats, and I do have a bit of artificial sweetener in my diet.
    On my first two days I have a craving for sweets, so I ate some sugar-free+aspartame free Jello which worked wonders, and I've been having very small amounts of sugar-free (less than 2% aspartame) Cranberry juice, which has 1 carb per 8 ounces. The most carbs I've had in a day since starting is 5, but I read that sweets could keep you out of Ketosis during induction. Do you think this is the case for me?
    Also, I've definitely been eating more fats than carbs, but I'm worried that I don't get enough fats. I'll say that my average fat intake is 1 egg, 1 piece of bacon, and 1 Salmon patty. Is this enough...or do I need to be gulping down all the fat I can get?

  2. 2B_Healthy

    I use ketone strips, usually find I'm not hungry. I have found that water is very important to weight loss, even if your not feeling thirsty.

  3. killab2oo5

    Hmm, I have been eating a bowl of sugar-free Jello (~2 cups of water) a day along with some pickles. I also drink about 1 cup of sugar-free Cranberry juice a day... You think that's kind of enough? I never could drink 8 glasses of water a day. Also, can I be eating too less fat to go into Ketosis...even if it's more than my carbs?
    Ketostix are on the way. Hoping for positive results.

Respiratory Acidosis

Respiratory acidosis can be defined as a medical condition in which hypoventilation or decreased ventilation leads to an increase in the concentration of blood carbon dioxide and decreased pH or acidosis. CO2 is constantly produced as the cells of the body respire. However, carbon dioxide can rapidly accumulate if the lungs are unable to expel it adequately through alveolar ventilation. Hence, alveolar hypoventilation leads to increased levels of PaCO2, a condition which is referred to as hypercapnia. Increased levels of PaCO2 reduce the HCO3/PaCO2 ratio as well as decrease the pH levels. The ICD-9 Code for this disorder is 276.2. The condition is subdivided into the following two types: In this form, the PaCO2 levels are elevated above 47 mm Hg or 6.3 kPa reference mark along with accompanying acidemia (pH levels less than 7.35). In this type, the PaCO2 levels are elevated above upper limit of reference range, with normal blood pH levels (between 7.35 and 7.45) or near normal pH that is secondary to the renal compensation and elevated levels of serum bicarbonate (HCO3 greater than 30 mm Hg). There are a number of factors which might be responsible for the development of this diso Continue reading >>

    This happens to me frequently. 600 will not kill you. You can go the the ER, and they will push high volumes of IV fluids and give you IV insulin. Doesn’t take long. The sooner you go, the easier it will be on you. Twice in two weeks, my readings were more than 600. You note that 600 is the highest reading available on meters, which is silly. For three days each time, I bolused 25 units in my pump every four hours. The first time, it finally took. The second, I became symptomatic which involved dehydration, lots of urination, etc. I found out that there are certain very simple sugars that will drive my glucose up very rapidly and very high. Now, no more problems

Nur 200 1.4 Review: Respiratory Acidosis

Priority assessments for a client suspected of respiratory acidosis would be skin color and temperature, appearance of the optic nerve (assessing for papilledema), and rate and depth of respirations. The nurse would be less concerned with the external appearance of the eye and the presence of sinus pain. The nurse is monitoring the input and output of a client with respiratory acidosis. The nurse understands that this intervention addresses which potential problem in the client? Clients with respiratory acidosis are at risk for dehydration, so monitoring the input and output of a client addresses this potential problem. Monitoring input and output does not address the risk for mental status changes, potential for compromised airway, or risk of injury. The nurse is administering sodium bicarbonate to the client with respiratory acidosis. The nurse understands that which is the primary goal of treatment for this client? The primary goal of treatment for respiratory acidosis is to remove excess acids and increase pH to normal levels. Increasing carbon dioxide in blood will only decrease pH further. Opening the airways is another method of returning blood pH to normal, but is not the Continue reading >>

    A couple of weeks back I decided to do a ketogenic experiment, I've been eating pretty low carbs for a while seeing as I'd removed grains from my diet (I occasionally had potato and rice) and got my carbs from veggies and some fruit. Thanks to /r/keto I managed to prep and plan everything properly and the first week I dropped all of the fruit, starchy vegetables, rice and upped my fat intake considerably. And felt terrible. BUT that is all part of the journey and I knew I'd going through that before I started so I just pushed on.
    By the end of the first week I cut my carbs further and upped my fat intake more. Towards the middle of the week I started to become "fat adapted" in the sense that I could function as a human being again. However, yesterday evening I made the conscious decision (not down to cravings) to come out of ketosis after continually assessing the whole journey and weighing up the pros and cons.
    The reasons I decided to stop
    I found that keeping such control over my macros was taking the enjoyment out of eating
    The huge rise in fat meant that I had to find huge supplementary sources of fat, called fat bombs by most keto followers, which after two weeks I just didn't want to eat
    Despite stabilising and having cravings disappear, my mood stabilise and rarely feeling hungry the way I felt just wasn't worth the hassle of staying in the diet
    Despite the fact that the body can obviously function in ketosis I'm not convinced it is in any way ideal for me and doesn't feel particularly natural
    Eating a ketogenic diet has helped my body burn fat for fuel and the experiment has taught me a lot and helped refine the way I want to approach food. In fact, it has been a complete success I just didn't choose to carry on with it. From now on I'll be eating a moderate carb diet (somewhere between 100g - 150g per day I'd guess in advanced) with more falling on exercise days and I'll be eating most of my carbs in the evening 2 - 3 hours before bed because I have come to believe that is an optimum time to have them. I also won't be scared of having a banana after working out (which I haven't done at all in the last two weeks because it wasn't possible in the early stages of ketosis)
    Anyway, I thought I'd post my experiences here in case anyone was interested.

    Just curious...how did you determine you where in Ketosis?
