Mneumonic Video: This may help you remember respiratory vs metabolic acidosis and alkalosis.

Acid-BaseBalance

and compensatory

mechanisms

Watch this video for Acid Base Balance info

pH, HCO3 H+Compensation:High H+ stimulates lungs to hyperventilate to blow off CO2 and raise pH. Kidneys retain HCO3 to bind H+.

Metabolic Acidosis

pH, HCO3 H+ Compensation: slowed breathing retains CO2, which lowers pH; Kidneys secrete HCO3

Metabolic Alkalosis

pH, H+ CO2Compensation: Kidneys retain HCO3 and secrete H+ raising pH. breath rate increases to blow off excess CO2.

Respiratory Acidosis

pH, HCO3 CO2Compensation: cells release H+ into system, Kidneys excrete HCO3 to form CO2+H2O lowering pH. breathing lowers to retain CO2

Respiratory Alkalosis
