Respiratory acidosis #sign and symptoms of Respiratory acidosis Respiratory acidosis ABGs Analyse https://youtu.be/L5MWy1iHacI Plz share n subscribe my chanel is a condition that occurs when the lungs cant remove enough of the Suctioning https://youtu.be/hMJGkxvXTW0 carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by the body. 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.

    Here's my previous thread where I was frustrated with not losing weight on strict keto for 3 months. https://www.reddit.com/r/keto/comments/2xxn05/im_sick_of_not_losing_weight_on_keto/
    I haven't changed my workout routine or caloric intake. All I did was change the amount of daily protein intake. I was eating an average of 100-150g of protein per day. Weight has been falling off after I dropped protein to 70g per day and increased my fat in order to remain at the same caloric intake. I've dropped 5 pounds ever since. Just thought I would share that with anyone that may be dealing with the same challenges that I was. I'll keep you guys updated. I look forward to doing a before and after. Also my workouts and strength is still the same. I'm still increasing 5lbs on every workout session on 5x5 with no problem. Someone at the gym even asked me if I was pro which was nice!

    I was listening to a youtube interview of Stephanie Keto Person by Primal Edge Health last night and they were mentioning that in some (many?) people gluconeogenesis is a very real phenomenon when protein is in excess. This would definitely be a data point in favour of that hypothesis. It would also explain why my losses are WAY better on days when I fast (since I'm only eating meat on a single meal then instead of for every meal).

  3. TreeFiddy1031

    You can eat too much protein and not enough fat to be in ketosis, but if calories are held the same it wouldn't affect the rate of weight loss. OP is seeing a "woosh" or some form of water weight fluctuations have masked fat loss and he/she is falsely attributing it to changing macro ratios. Keto is not immune to calories in - calories out.
    Edit: Wait - you guys really think keto doesn't require a caloric deficit? There is literally zero science to support that.

Respiratory Acidosis

Respiratory Acidosis Definition Respiratory acidosis is a condition in which a build-up of carbon dioxide in the blood produces a shift in the body's pH balance and causes the body's system to become more acidic. This condition is brought about by a problem either involving the lungs and respiratory system or signals from the brain that control breathing. Description Respiratory acidosis is an acid imbalance in the body caused by a problem related to breathing. In the lungs, oxygen from inhaled air is exchanged for carbon dioxide from the blood. This process takes place between the alveoli (tiny air pockets in the lungs) and the blood vessels that connect to them. When this exchange of oxygen for carbon dioxide is impaired, the excess carbon dioxide forms an acid in the blood. The condition can be acute with a sudden onset, or it can develop gradually as lung function deteriorates. Causes and symptoms Respiratory acidosis can be caused by diseases or conditions that affect the lungs themselves, such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, or severe pneumonia. Blockage of the airway due to swelling, a foreign object, or vomit can induce respiratory acidosis. Drugs like anesthetics Continue reading >>

    So I just came back from the doctor and her jaw literally dropped when she saw my cholesterol levels.
    My hdl was 90, but my LDL was 372. She told me to stop ketoing immediately and start taking cholesterol pills.
    Has anyone had such a high cholesterol level? If so, did you guys take medication?
    EDIT I've been reading a lot about high LDL levels and low TG levels and how there are different types of lipids in our blood. I'm not going to take the medication at this point and take a VAP test to see what kind of lipids are in my bloodstream.
    Also, I think it would be helpful to post some basic information.

    Some people have issues with saturated fat, dietary cholesterol, or keto.
    Thomas Dayspring talks about a similar case (but with confirmed high LDL particle count) in one of his articles, I posted this in another thread:
    Some people react badly to saturated fat and dietary cholesterol (hyperresponders, longer post), they can probably still do keto (depends on how sensitive they are) just don't overdo the coconut oil, butter (eat more olive/avocado/canola oil instead) and cut down on eggs.
    Others might do better on just general non-ketogenic low carb, check out this article from Thomas Dayspring (a lipidologist referenced by Peter Attia and Gary Taubes) with a case very similar to yours (formatted for readability):
    “I started eating paleo/low-carb (with dairy) in Apr 2011. I should add that my diet has never been ultra low-carb -- just lower-carb than most people. My last blood test before going paleo was in Nov 2010 and my past numbers have always been similar:”
    Total cholesterol = 196
    LDL-C =105
    HDL-C = 75
    TG = 78 (all in mg/dL)
    TSH = 2.15
    “I lost 30 pounds in about 3 months and have kept it off ever since. Today I weigh 124 and maintain my weight easily eating this way, even though I am menopausal.”
    The lipid panel was repeated on the new diet:
    TC = 323
    LDL-C = 230
    HDL-C 83
    TG 49 (all in mg/dL)
    Total LDL-P = 2643 nmol/L (99 th percentile population cut point)
    TG/HDL-C = 0.59 (poor man’s marker of insulin sensitivity) Under 2.0 is excellent
    Not great changes, very high LDL cholesterol similar to your reaction, and this likely also means very high LDL particle count.
    Here's what they did:
    The dietary advice was to cut back on saturated fat and use more MUFA and PUFA without increasing carbs. After doing just that for a few months the patient reports:
    “The only modifications I've made because of my high lipids are eating steel cut oats regularly, adding chia seeds to my diet, and eating apples regularly (to increase fiber levels); cutting out most dairy; and watching my saturated fat intake a little more closely--all aimed at getting my high LDL-P down.” Weight has remained stable.
    Here are the follow up labs:
    TC = 178
    LDL-C = 92 (was 230)
    HDL-C = 82
    TG = 21
    Non-HDL-C = 96 (all inmg/dL)
    Total LDL-P: 948 nmol/L (recall it was grossly elevated at 2643) < 1000 nmol/L (20 th percentile population cut point) is desirable
    Small LDL-P: < 90 nmol/L (normal)
    LDL Size: 21.4 nm (quite large)
    CRP was near 0.
    Thomas Dayspring, "Lipidaholics Anonymous Case 291 Can losing weight worsen lipids?"
    The article is a very long read, but it's also absolutely excellent at explaining why some people can react badly and what to really look for in a lipid test, and what to do about it when things look bad.

4.2 Respiratory Acidosis - Causes

Acid-Base Physiology The arterial pCO2 is normally maintained at a level of about 40 mmHg by a balance between production of CO2 by the body and its removal by alveolar ventilation. If the inspired gas contains no CO2 then this relationship can be expressed by: paCO2 is proportional to VCO2 / VA where: VCO2 is CO2 production by the body VA is Alveolar ventilation An increase in arterial pCO2 can occur by one of three possible mechanisms: Presence of excess CO2 in the inspired gas Decreased alveolar ventilation Increased production of CO2 by the body CO2 gas can be added to the inspired gas or it may be present because of rebreathing : Anaesthetists are familiar with both these mechanisms. In these situations, hypercapnia can be induced even in the presence of normal alveolar ventilation and normal carbon dioxide production by the body. An adult at rest produces about 200mls of CO2 per minute: this is excreted via the lungs and the arterial pCO2 remains constant. An increased production of CO2 would lead to a respiratory acidosis if ventilation remained constant. The system controlling arterial pCO2 is very efficient (ie rapid and effective) and any increase in pCO2 very promptly re Continue reading >>

    The question of how soon ketosis starts during the dry fast is a very frequent one. Hence, I decided to start a thread to discuss my own experiments with pre-fast meals and how they might or might not effect ketosis.
    On June 12th, 2011 I started my weekly 36-hrs dry fast at 20:00. Prior to eat I had a dinner of all-you-can-eat sushi which mostly consisted of refined carbs (white rice) and protein (fish) with simple carbs being the dominant ingredient. The dinner ended at 18:00, after which I had a cup of coffee and a glass of water before commencing the fast.
    23 hour mark my ketons were at NEGATIVE
    25 hour mark my ketons were at between TRACE and SMALL
    34.5 hour mark my ketons were at between TRACE and SMALL
    36 hour mark my ketons were still between TRACE AND SMALL
    So the conclusion is that while we do go into ketosis at about 24 hours the conversion is a very slow process if the pre-fast meal is mainly refined carbs with some protein.
    My next fast will commence on Wed June 15th when I will have my pre-fast meal either low starch carbs (fruit and veggies) or all protein like fish and egg.

    Yuliya replied the topic: Re: Dry Fast and Ketosis
    Milena, I am a little confused why you call rice 'simple carbs'. In fact rice is complex carbohydrate.
    Simple carbs are things like fruit, and also sugar.
    Complex carbohydrates are chains of three or more single sugar molecules linked together. Long chains of sugar molecules called starches serve as a storage form of energy in plants and when you eat those plants, your body breaks down the carbohydrates for your own energy needs. Even though complex carbohydrates are made from chains of sugars, they do not taste sweet. Complex carbohydrates are more difficult to digest than simple carbohydrates, because we need to break them down first.
    Simple carbohydrates are broken down quickly by the body to be used as energy.
    Simple carbohydrates come in 2 forms: refined sugars (extracted from fruits, grains, tubers, and sugar cane) and whole-food sugars (primarily sweet fruits). Both refined and whole-food simple sugars taste sweet to our tongue.
    May compassion to yourself and all beings guide you in your eating, fasting, and lifestyle choices.

    I actually meant to say "refined carbs" since it was white rice not brown. Will make that correction right now.
