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.

Respiratory Acidosis: Types, Causes, Symptoms, Treatment

What is Respiratory Acidosis? Respiratory Acidosis which is also known by the names of Respiratory Failure or Ventilatory Failure is a pathological condition of the respiratory system in which the lungs of the body are not able to remove enough carbon dioxide from the body thus making the blood and other fluids in the body more acidic in nature. This is because the body must balance the ions that control pH. In majority of the cases, Respiratory Acidosis is caused due to an underlying condition. Under normal circumstances, the lungs take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. The oxygen is taken from the lungs to different parts of the body while the carbon dioxide is released from the lungs to the air. Sometimes what happens is that the lungs lose their capacity to remove enough carbon dioxide from the body and some amount of carbon dioxide still remains within the body, which increases the acidic content in the blood and other fluids in the body causing Respiratory Acidosis. Some of the underlying conditions like asthma, COPD, pneumonia and sleep apnea are the primary causes for development of Respiratory Acidosis. What are the Types of Respiratory Acidosis?

    Try not to freak me out too much with your answers if it's a sign of something bad. I've noticed it in the last week and it's bugging me.
    Is there something that causes this? The only other time I've smelled this is when he's had a fever. He has no fever.

Ph Control: Respiratory Acidosis

Normally, the kidneys and lungs maintain a pH between 7.35 - 7.45 in extracellular fluid. Respiratory acidosis occurs when the lungs cannot eliminate enough carbon dioxide from the body’s tissues. The typical reason is hypoventilation, or a low respiratory rate, causing the plasma pH to fall below 7.35 due to excessive carbon dioxide in the blood. When this occurs, certain chemoreceptors in the body are stimulated to increase the respiratory rate. The kidneys also help by secreting more hydrogen ions (acid) into the tubular fluid and generating more bicarbonate (base) to help stabilize the pH. Respiratory acidosis can cause many physiological problems, particularly in the nervous and cardiovascular systems which are sensitive to pH fluctuations. Continue reading >>

    I keep reading about these strips but not sure where to get them or what to ask for. I am in Canada if that makes a difference.
    Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    Hi jjcj,
    I'm in Canada too, but I haven't found the strips...although I haven't looked very hard, I just browsed a couple drug stores, then gave up. I'm sure they're out there though - I heard that diabetics used to use them(?). So maybe if you explain at the drugstore to the pharmecist, they might know what you're talking about. Maybe they keep them behind the coutner. Froufy might be your best bet, though, for knowing what they might be called up here.
    To be honest, I can find nothing in Canada except for Splenda, so I've pretty much given up many of those things. Although maybe because I'm in Quebec it's a bit tougher to find some of these things??

    I'm assuming you're talking about the ketone testing strips? They come under lots of names and I've seen them range from $11 - $17 here in the states. There's frequently auctions on ebay for them.
    I personally don't use them anymore. They were fun for just "checking in" to see how I was doing, but I've since learned that I'm doing just fine and don't need to risk peeing on my hand to find out

Evaluation Of Respiratory Acidosis

Diagnostic Approach Once respiratory acidosis has been identified by ABG analysis, the approach to narrowing the differential diagnosis and determining the severity of the patient's condition is aided by the identification of its acuity (acute or chronic). This is done through the synthesis of information from the ABG itself, history, and physical exam. [8] Historical findings may immediately point to the underlying cause, such as head trauma and drug ingestion, or provide only limited information, as with the obtunded patient. The physical exam should focus on assessment of the neurologic and respiratory systems with careful examination of the lung fields, which can yield useful information regarding the presence of underlying parenchymal disease. Further laboratory studies are warranted when metabolic abnormalities or specific systemic diseases are suspected etiologies. Radiographic imaging is key to the evaluation of respiratory acidosis, as it can provide rapid screening for head, cervical, or chest pathology. ABG analysis Step 1: Is there acidosis? Acidosis is indicated by an arterial blood gas pH below the normal range (i.e., <7.35) Step 2: Respiratory or metabolic? Respirato Continue reading >>

    Ketosis and Intermittent Fasting


    Ketosis and Intermittent Fasting I'm currently using Ketosis to get rid of some unwanted fat while maintaining as much muscle mass as possible.
    Going well but still early to state if Ketosis really works as well as advertised. Dropped about 1% in a week with VERY minimal weight loss so I guess it is going well.
    I was wondering about combining Ketosis and IF, I won't be this time round but something I considered for next time, should I choose to go Ketogenic again.
    Anyone have any experience with this?
    It makes sense to me, in Ketosis most of the cals coming in are from fats so you don't eat as much volume of food which fits IF perfectly.
    I imagine the main drawback could be an increased chance of muscle loss due to the fasting period and becoming even more catabolic than is usual when in Ketosis.

    Re: Ketosis and Intermittent Fasting

    Keto and IF is fine in my experience.
    Although I believe it contributed massively to me having an eating disorder. But then I used to just have 1 meal a day, so deprivation of carbs and food for 22 hours a day wasnt a good long term idea really.

    Re: Ketosis and Intermittent Fasting

    It can work but would it work for you? Only you can find that out.
    I tend to look at these diet systems and see if they fit my lifestyle and goals... Then go for it.

  • Respiratory Acidosis Vs Metabolic Acidosis

    Respiratory acidosis is an acid-base balance disturbance due to alveolar hypoventilation. Production of carbon dioxide occurs rapidly and failure of ventilation promptly increases the partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2). [ 1 ] The normal reference range for PaCO2 is 35-45 mm Hg. Alveolar hypoventilation leads to an increased PaCO2 (ie, hypercapnia). The increase in PaCO2, in turn, decreases the bicarbonate (HCO3)/PaCO2 ratio, the ...
