In this intro lesson on acid base disturbances in patients, begin with the basics, and get a clear understanding of the Henderson–Hasselbalch equation.
In this lesson, learn more about the role of bicarbonate, and how the anion gap (AG) and the CHEM-7 are used to identify metabolic acidosis.
Learn more about metabolic and respiratory acidosis and alkalosis, and possible patient responses to various combinations of HCO3 and pCO2 activity.
Take a closer look at how pH and pCO2 interact in the form of a graph, and learn the ratios for metabolic and respiratory acidosis and alkalosis.
Learn the steps for diagnosing acid base disorders, including how to use anion gap and a delta gap numbers, how to analyze pH and pCO2 ratios, and more.
