Today, we'll be going over part 2 of 4 of the acid base disorders.
As a recap, what is normal?
Well, a normal pH is 7.35 - 7.45
If the pH is <7.35 then we have acedemia.
If the pH is >7.45 then we have alkalemia.
A normal bicarbonate is 22-26 and a normal pCO2 is 35-45.
In today's podcast we are going to tackle respiratory acidosis, partial vs complete compensation, and we'll show you what to look for to see if there is a co-existing acid/base disorder.
