Acid Based

Question
1 out of 11
 

Interpret the following data.

What is your diagnosis?



A Uncompensated metabolic acidosis

B Uncompensated. Respiratory acidosis.

C Compensated Respiratory acidosis

D Compensated metabolic acidosis

Ans. D

Compensated metabolic acidosis

In this question the PH is 7.40 (i.e. normal) so acid base disturbance has been compensated so option A and B are ruled out. Here PCO2 is 20 (i.e. respiratory alkalosis) so option C is ruled out.

As PH is 7.4 (compensated) and HCO3 is 8. Hence Option D is the answer.
