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 repeated vomiting, resulting in a loss of hydrochloric acid within the stomach content. Severe dehydration, and the consumption of alkali are other causes. It can also be caused by administration of diuretics and endocrine disorders such as Cushing's syndrome. Compensatory mechanism for metabolic alkalosis involve slowed breathing by the lungs to increase serum carbon dioxide, a condition leaning toward respiratory acidosis. As respiratory acidosis often accompanies the compensation for metabolic alkalosis, and vice versa, a delicate balance is created between these two conditions. Metabolic alkalosis is usually accompanied by low blood potassium concentration, causing, e.g., muscular weakness, muscle pain, and muscle cramps (from disturbed function of the skeletal muscles), and muscle spasms (from disturbed function of smooth muscles). It may also cause low blood calcium concentration. As the blood pH increases, blood transport proteins, such as albumin, become more ionized into anions. This causes the free calcium present in blood to bind more strongly with albumin. If severe, it may cause tetany.

    This side effect was very common with phenformin (metformin’s “parent drug”), and in fact led to its withdrawal from many markets. However, lactic acidosis appears to be very uncommon with metformin. In fact, whether or not lactic acidosis occurs at all with metformin is a matter of intense debate among some physicians. Nonetheless, out of safety, physicians will not prescribe metformin to patients at high risk of lactic acidosis (such as patients with advanced kidney disease).

Cause Of Metabolic Acidosis In Prolonged Surgery

Waters, Jonathan H. MD; Miller, Lawrence R. MD; Clack, Sara; Kim, Joyce V. MD, RN, RMT Objective: The intraoperative development of metabolic acidosis is frequently attributed to hypovolemia, tissue hypoperfusion, and lactic acidosis. In this study, dilutional acidosis was evaluated as a possible mechanism for the routine development of intraoperative acidosis in noncardiac, nonvascular surgery patients. Design: Prospective, observational study. Setting: University-affiliated Veteran's Affairs Medical Center and a staff model, health maintenance organization hospital. Patients: Twelve patients undergoing prolonged surgical procedures expected to last ≥4 hrs were enrolled in the study. Interventions: Perioperative management was based on the judgment of the attending anesthesiologist and surgeon without knowledge of the study's intent. Measurements and Main Results: Arterial blood gas parameters, serum electrolytes, and urine electrolytes were measured pre- and postoperatively. Pulmonary artery catheters were placed for hemodynamic measurement and oxygen delivery calculations. Plasma volume was measured both pre- and postoperatively, using the Evans blue dye dilution technique. Al Continue reading >>

This is a video that I've been meaning to make for a while. I think the idea of converting one drug to another is a pretty cool concept. About a year ago, I made a series where I chemically converted Aspirin to Tylenol (aka acetaminophen, paracetamol, or APAP). The original series was spread out over several videos and was over 90 minutes long. It has a lot more detail, but it was a much bigger commitment to watch. ------------------------------------------ Nile Red Shop: https://nile.red Patreon: https://goo.gl/3h353G Facebook: https://goo.gl/uyxvJV Twitter: https://goo.gl/uCmnV4 Personal Instagram: https://goo.gl/EdBq4b

Metabolic Acidosis Due To Paracetamol (acetaminophen)

Summarized from McGregor A, Laight N, Nolan S. Paracetamol and high anion gap metabolic acidosis. J Intensive Care Society 2012; 13: 54-56 Armenian P, Gerona R, Blanc P et al. 5-oxoprolinemia causing elevated anion gap metabolic acidosis in the setting of acetaminophen use. J Emerg Med 2012; 43: 54-57 Metabolic acidosis is a common metabolic disturbance among the acutely/critically ill that has many possible causes. The condition is diagnosed by arterial blood gas analysis which reveals primary reduction in pH and bicarbonate, followed by secondary (compensatory) reduction in pCO2. Abnormal accumulation of endogenous organic acids is one broad mechanism that gives rise to metabolic acidosis, which is differentiated from other mechanisms by being associated with high anion gap. The most common endogenous organic acid metabolic acidosis are: lactic acidosis (accumulation of lactic acid) and ketoacidosis (accumulation of ketoacids). Rarer causes of high anion gap metabolic acidosis due to organic acid accumulation are those that result from ingestion of a toxic substance whose metabolism involves production of an organic acid. For example, the toxicity of ethylene glycol is due in par Continue reading >>
