Question

If blood gas analysis reveal pH = 7.4, pCO2=30; pO2= 105. This is partially compensated?



A Respiratory acidosis
B Respiratory alkalosis

C Metabolic acidosis
D Metabolic alkalosis

Ans. B

Respiratory alkalosis

If pH = 7.4, pCO2=30; pO2= 105. This is partially compensated metabolic acidosis.

Four categories of acid-base imbalances:

1. Respiratory acidosis—elevation of pCO2 due to ventilation depression

2. Respiratory alkalosis—depression of pCO2 due to alveolar hyperventilation

3. Metabolic acidosis—depression of HCO3– or an increase in non-carbonic acids

4. Metabolic alkalosis—elevation of HCO3– usually due to an excessive loss of metabolic acids
