What is BIOLOGICAL PUMP? What does BIOLOGICAL PUMP mean? BIOLOGICAL PUMP meaning - BIOLOGICAL PUMP definition - BIOLOGICAL PUMP explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. The biological pump, in its simplest form, is the ocean’s biologically driven sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere to the deep sea. It is the part of the oceanic carbon cycle responsible for the cycling of organic matter formed by phytoplankton during photosynthesis (soft-tissue pump), as well as the cycling of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) formed by certain plankton and mollusks as a protective coating (carbonate pump). The biological pump can be divided into three distinct phases, the first of which is the production of fixed carbon by planktonic phototrophs in the euphotic (sunlit) surface region of the ocean. In these surface waters, phytoplankton use carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and other trace elements (barium, iron, zinc, etc.) during photosynthesis to make carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Some plankton, (e.g. coccolithophores and foraminifera) combine calcium (Ca) and dissolved carbonates (carbonic acid and bic

Measure, Manage, See More in Health @ biomedx.com This is the condition where someone is systemically too acid. The extracellular plasma fluid has a low pH wherein the H+ concentration is high and the bicarbonate level is low. Just as in metabolic alkalosis, metabolic acidosis engages first the bodys acid-base second to second chemical buffering system, and if more assistance is required it turns to the minute by minute buffering ability of the lungs. So here we see a compensatory rise in breath rate as the body says "hey, Ive got to get rid of some of this acid so lets blow off some CO2". But you will recall that the lungs are only good for about 50-75% of the job at which point the kidneys will engage. So first clue to metabolic acidosis is a rise in breath rate. Recall normal breath rate is at about 14 breaths per minute. When you start moving much above this start looking at the urine and saliva pH pattern. Here we are blowing off CO2 - so low CO2 means low carbonic acid which means a rise in saliva pH. The kidneys will dump as much H+ as they can, and it will be going out with ammonium ions (NH4+). Sodium ions are conserved in this process. The rate of ammonium secretion depe Continue reading >>

    The majority of people in the sub-reddit think that calories are more important than foods that cause insulin spike and if you think otherwise you get down-voted in to v/keto. Whats the point of changing your diet to get into ketosis if you think you won't lose weight unless you restrict your calories? That sub is now an extension of r/nutrition.

    Before reddit permanently banned me (I can't even make an account anymore), I was downvoted a lot on /r/keto for pointing out that exercise has a negligible effect on weight loss, and I was also downvoted into oblivion anytime I told any diabetic (type 1 or 2) to work closely with their Dr when going on a keto diet because there are risks associated with it (especially for type 1 diabetics because they don't produce insulin... which is why they go into ketoacidosis!). That reddit keto sub is also getting filled up with "fat acceptance" types which is counter productive to weight loss.

    I mean you should still watch your calories if you are having trouble with your weight, or not hitting goals you set out for yourself. Switching to a keto diet can only help so much, so why not make the most out of it.

Ph Of The Blooe - 8 - Potassium And Ph - M J Bookallil

It is commonly considered that there are associations between potassium and hydrogen ion metabolism. One such is an association between K+ states and alkalosis. It is often stated as a cause and effect relationship, i.e. that the low K+ states will produce an metabolic alkalosis. This hypothesis has been refuted a number of times. An alkalosis can occur without a K+ abnormality (acute pyloric obstruction) and a stable K+ abnormality without an alkalosis ( Kassirer et al, (b) 1966 ; Jones et al, 1982 ). In a K+ deficient state an alkalosis can develop as the K deficiency is corrected (Belich et al, 1966) and conversely a metabolic acidosis can be induced by means of K+ deprivation with a resulting K+ deficiency ( Burnell et al, 1974 ). An alkalosis causes renal loss of K but the low K state ( Kassirer et al, 1966a ) does not per se seem to cause an alkalosis. (This is well discussed in review articles by Schwartz et al, 1968 and 1978 ). In any case, if an alkalosis and a low K state co-exist, both have to be corrected. Potassium salts of organic acids will not correct the alkalosis associated with a potassium deficiency ( Aber et al, 1962 ). Sodium chloride will correct the alkalos Continue reading >>

    so it's been about a week since i have started the diet. i use a keto app to track what i eat and to try to reach my goals. over the past week my diet has consisted of 0-5% carbs daily, 20-25% protein daily, and 75-80% fat daily. I have been using those cheap ketone test strips to check if i was in ketosis, and for the first few days it was getting darker until yesterday when it came out somewhat lighter. Also checked earlier today and got the same results. im not sure if it's the test strips or if i'm simply not in ketosis. Although, in the one week of this diet i've gone through the keto flu already and lost about 8 pounds (probably water weight). if anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated!

    keto macros are in grams, percentages mean nothing.

    piss sticks are not the correct tool for nutritional ketosis. they are not telling you the information you think they are.

    if you have been eating 20g net carbs or less for 2-3 days, and are still alive, you are in ketosis.

  3. RedWong15

    If you're losing water weight like that you're on the way. Just stick with it and don't worry about the strip things.

Home | Education | Hypokalaemia and Metabolic Acidosis 35 year old Aboriginal female presents with a 2/52 Hx of weakness, thirst and nausea. Presents to ED unable to lift her hands. Admitted 3/12 ago with something similar but doesnt know what it was and her medical notes are not immediately available. No other past medical history of note. Examination reveals a quiet, dehydrated lady with generalised non-lateralising weakness in all 4 limbs. Bedside venous blood gas results included: Sinus rhythm with sinus arrhythmia at a rate of 72 bpm. U waves noted most prominently in leads V1-V3 Sinus arrhythmia [sinus rhythm with slight variation (>0.16 seconds) in the sinus cycles] Normal anion gap metabolic acidosis. The 2 most common causes in ED Other causes are many and varied. There are several mnemonics out there the most recent edition of Rosen suggests: F-USED CARS Basically (and rather obviously), a metabolic acidosis is caused by either excess acid or a loss of alkali. Excess acid may be produced by the body itself or may be exogenous. Calculating the anion gap is used in the context of having made a diagnosis of a metabolic acidosis to help determine possible causes. Its an arti Continue reading >>

    I'm on my 4.day of my keto bulk and my problem is that I can't sleep. (entered ketosis on day3)
    I have lots of energy and my body just won't settle down when it comes to sleeping. I wake up during midnight to take a pee, then can't sleep after that.
    I workout 2 times a day, 5 days/week. not to mention being on my feet at least 6 hours a day. I just don't feel a need to sleep.

    Serum Potassium Concentration in Acidemic States I have read the Karger Terms and Conditions and agree.

    Physiology of Potassium Handling Potassium (K+) is the most abundant cation in the body. About 90% of total body potassium is intracellular and 10% is in extracellular fluid, of which less than 1% is composed of plasma. The ratio of intracellular to extracellular potassium determines neuromuscular and cardiovascular excitability, which is why serum potassium is normally regulated within a narrow range of 3.5 to 5.0 mmol/L. Dietary K+ intake is hi ...

    Go to: Abstract Maintenance of extracellular K+ concentration within a narrow range is vital for numerous cell functions, particularly electrical excitability of heart and muscle. Potassium homeostasis during intermittent ingestion of K+ involves rapid redistribution of K+ into the intracellular space to minimize increases in extracellular K+ concentration, and ultimate elimination of the K+ load by renal excretion.
