The first stomach of ruminants. It lies on the left side of the body, occupying the whole of the left side of the abdomen and even stretching across the median plane of the body to the right side. It is capacious, divided into an upper and a lower sac, each of which has a blind sac at its posterior extremity. The rumen is lined by mucous membrane containing no digestive glands, but mucus-secreting glands are present in large numbers. Coarse, partially chewed food is stored and churned in the rumen until the animal finds circumstances convenient for rumination. When this occurs, little balls of food are regurgitated through the esophagus into the mouth, and are subjected to a second more thorough mastication, swallowed, and passed on into other parts of the compound stomach.

Metabolic acidosis-induced retinopathy in the neonatal rat. (1/1411)

PURPOSE: Carbon dioxide (CO2)-induced retinopathy (CDIR) in the neonatal rat, analogous to human retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), was previously described by our group. In this model, it is possible that CO2-associated acidosis provides a biochemical mechanism for CDIR. Therefore, the effect of pure metabolic acidosis on the developing retinal vasculature of the neonatal rat was investigated. METHODS: A preliminary study of arterial blood pH was performed to confirm acidosis in our model. In neonatal rats with preplaced left carotid artery catheters, acute blood gas samples were taken 1 to 24 hours after gavage with either NH4Cl 1 millimole/100 g body weight or saline. In the subsequent formal retinopathy study, 150 newborn Sprague-Dawley rats were raised in litters of 25 and randomly assigned to be gavaged twice daily with either NH4Cl 1 millimole/100 g body weight (n = 75) or saline (n = 75) from day 2 to day 7. After 5 days of recovery, rats were killed, and retinal vasculature was assessed using fluorescein perfusion and ADPase staining techniques. RESULTS: In the preliminary pH study, the minimum pH after NH4Cl gavage was 7.10+/-0.10 at 3 hours (versus 7.37+/-0.03 in controls, mean +/- SD, P < 0.01). In the formal retinopathy study, preretinal neovascularization occurred in 36% of acidotic rats versus 5% of controls (P < 0.001). Acidotic rats showed growth retardation (final weight 16.5+/-3.0 g versus 20.2+/-2.6 g, P < 0.001). The ratio of vascularized to total retinal area was smaller in acidotic rats (94%+/-4% versus 96%+/-2%, P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Metabolic acidosis alone induces neovascularization similar to ROP in the neonatal rat. This suggests a possible biochemical mechanism by which high levels of CO2 induce neovascularization and supports the suggestion that acidosis may be an independent risk factor for ROP.  (+info)

Arteriovenous differences for amino acids and lactate across kidneys of normal and acidotic rats. (2/1411)

1. Arteriovenous differences fro amino acids across kidneys of normal and chronically acidotic rats were measured. Glutamine was the only amino acid extracted in increased amounts in acidosis. There was a considerable production of serine by kidneys from both normal and acidotic rats. 2. The arterial blood concentration of glutamine was significantly decreased in acidotic animals. 3. The glutamine extracted by kidneys of acidotic rats was largely and probably exclusively derived from the plasma. 4. The blood lactate concentration was unchanged in acidosis, as was the uptake of lactate by the kidney.  (+info)

Abnormal ductus venosus blood flow: a clue to umbilical cord complication. (3/1411)

We report a case of umbilical cord complication causing, fetal hypoxemia and acidemia. At 30 weeks of gestation, the patient was referred because of slightly increased amniotic fluid volume and a non-reactive cardiotocogram. Biometry was appropriate for gestational age. Umbilical artery and fetal aortic Doppler findings were normal, whereas diastolic blood flow velocities in the middle cerebral artery were increased and the ductus venosus showed severely abnormal flow velocity waveforms with reversal of flow during atrial contraction. Since other reasons for fetal hypoxemia could be excluded, careful examination of the umbilical cord was performed. Traction of the hypercoiled umbilical cord due to its course around the fetal neck and shoulders was suspected. Cesarean section confirmed the sonographic findings and fetal blood gases revealed fetal acidemia. This case indicates that investigation of fetal venous blood flow may also help to identify fetal jeopardy due to reasons other than increased placental vascular resistance.  (+info)

Epidural analgesia with bupivacaine does not improve splanchnic tissue perfusion after aortic reconstruction surgery. (4/1411)

Inadequate splanchnic tissue perfusion is relatively common during and after aortic surgery. We hypothesized that vasodilation caused by thoracic epidural analgesia improves splanchnic blood flow and tissue perfusion after aortic surgery. In this prospective, randomized, controlled study, we studied 20 patients undergoing elective aortic-femoral or aortic-iliac reconstruction surgery. Gastric and sigmoid colon mucosal PCO2 and pH were measured during surgery. An epidural bolus of bupivacaine 40 mg followed by infusion of 15 mg h-1 was started after operation in 10 patients. After operation, splanchnic blood flow and gastric and sigmoid colon mucosal PCO2 and pH were measured before and 2 h after the start of epidural analgesia. During surgery, the gastric mucosal-arterial PCO2 difference remained stable, whereas the sigmoid mucosal-arterial PCO2 difference increased during aortic clamping but returned to pre-clamping values after declamping. After operation, epidural analgesia had no effect on gastric or sigmoid mucosal-arterial PCO2 differences or on splanchnic blood flow.  (+info)

Temporal differences in actions of calcium channel blockers on K+ accumulation, cardiac function, and high-energy phosphate levels in ischemic guinea pig hearts. (5/1411)

We investigated temporal differences in the protective action of three types of Ca2+ channel blockers in myocardial ischemia, focusing particularly on the blocking ability under depolarizing conditions. The effects of diltiazem, verapamil, and nifedipine on extracellular potassium concentration ([K+]e), acidosis, and level of metabolic markers were examined during 30-min global ischemia and postischemic left ventricular (LV) function in isolated guinea pig hearts. Diltiazem and verapamil, but not nifedipine, inhibited the late phase (15-30 min) of [K+]e elevation, whereas all three blockers delayed the onset of the early phase (0-8 min) of [K+]e elevation. Diltiazem and verapamil inhibited ischemic contracture and improved postischemic LV function to a greater extent. These differences appeared to be linked to preservation of ATP and creatine phosphate and delay of cessation of anaerobic glycolytic activity. Maneuvers to preserve energy sources during ischemia (decrease in external Ca2+ concentration or pacing at a lower frequency) attenuated the late phase of [K+]e elevation. Inhibition of LV pressure was potentiated 12- and 8.2-fold by diltiazem and verapamil, respectively, at 8.9 mM K+ as compared with 2.9 mM K+, whereas that by nifedipine was unchanged. These results indicate that the differential cardioprotection of Ca2+ channel blockers in the late period of ischemia correlates with preservation of high-energy phosphates as a result of different Ca2+ channel blocking abilities under high [K+]e conditions.  (+info)

Rapid saline infusion produces hyperchloremic acidosis in patients undergoing gynecologic surgery. (6/1411)

BACKGROUND: Changes in acid-base balance caused by infusion of a 0.9% saline solution during anesthesia and surgery are poorly characterized. Therefore, the authors evaluated these phenomena in a dose-response study. METHODS: Two groups of 12 patients each who were undergoing major intraabdominal gynecologic surgery were assigned randomly to receive 0.9% saline or lactated Ringer's solution in a dosage of 30 ml x kg(-1) x h(-1). The pH, arterial carbon dioxide tension, and serum concentrations of sodium, potassium, chloride, lactate, and total protein were measured in 30-min intervals. The serum bicarbonate concentration was calculated using the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation and also using the Stewart approach from the strong ion difference and the amount of weak plasma acid. The strong ion difference was calculated as serum sodium + serum potassium - serum chloride - serum lactate. The amount of weak plasma acid was calculated as the serum total protein concentration in g/dl x 2.43. RESULTS: Infusion of 0.9% saline, but not lactated Ringer's solution, caused a metabolic acidosis with hyperchloremia and a concomitant decrease in the strong ion difference. Calculating the serum bicarbonate concentration using the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation or the Stewart approach produced equivalent results. CONCLUSIONS: Infusion of approximately 30 ml x kg(-1) x h(-1) saline during anesthesia and surgery inevitably leads to metabolic acidosis, which is not observed after administration of lactated Ringer's solution. The acidosis is associated with hyperchloremia.  (+info)

Evaluation of signals activating ubiquitin-proteasome proteolysis in a model of muscle wasting. (7/1411)

The ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic system is stimulated in conditions causing muscle atrophy. Signals initiating this response in these conditions are unknown, although glucocorticoids are required but insufficient to stimulate muscle proteolysis in starvation, acidosis, and sepsis. To identify signals that activate this system, we studied acutely diabetic rats that had metabolic acidosis and increased corticosterone production. Protein degradation was increased 52% (P < 0.05), and mRNA levels encoding ubiquitin-proteasome system components, including the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E214k, were higher (transcription of the ubiquitin and proteasome subunit C3 genes in muscle was increased by nuclear run-off assay). In diabetic rats, prevention of acidemia by oral NaHCO3 did not eliminate muscle proteolysis. Adrenalectomy blocked accelerated proteolysis and the rise in pathway mRNAs; both responses were restored by administration of a physiological dose of glucocorticoids to adrenalectomized, diabetic rats. Finally, treating diabetic rats with insulin for >/=24 h reversed muscle proteolysis and returned pathway mRNAs to control levels. Thus acidification is not necessary for these responses, but glucocorticoids and a low insulin level in tandem activate the ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic system.  (+info)

Changes in intracellular Na+ and pH in rat heart during ischemia: role of Na+/H+ exchanger. (8/1411)

The role of the Na+/H+ exchanger in rat hearts during ischemia and reperfusion was investigated by measurements of intracellular Na+ concentration ([Na+]i) and intracellular and extracellular pH. Under our standard conditions (2-Hz stimulation), 10 min of ischemia caused no significant rise in [Na+]i but an acidosis of 1.0 pH unit, suggesting that the Na+/H+ exchanger was inactive during ischemia. This was confirmed by showing that the Na+/H+ exchange inhibitor methylisobutyl amiloride (MIA) had no effect on [Na+]i or on intracellular pH during ischemia. However, there was a short-lived increase in [Na+]i of 8.2 +/- 0.6 mM on reperfusion, which was reduced by MIA, showing that the Na+/H+ exchanger became active on reperfusion. To investigate the role of metabolic changes, we measured [Na+]i during anoxia. The [Na+]i did not change during 10 min of anoxia, but there was a small, transient rise of [Na+]i on reoxygenation, which was inhibited by MIA. In addition, we show that the Na+/H+ exchanger, tested by sodium lactate exposure, was inhibited during anoxia. These results show that the Na+/H+ exchanger is inhibited during ischemia and anoxia, probably by an intracellular metabolic mechanism. The exchanger activates rapidly on reperfusion and can cause a rapid rise in [Na+]i.  (+info)

N2 - The serum bicarbonate in neonates is lower than adults due in large part to a lower rate of proximal tubule acidification. It is unclear if the neonatal proximal tubule is functioning at maximal capacity or if the proximal tubule can respond to metabolic acidosis as has been described in adult proximal tubules. We find that neonatal mouse brush-border membranes have a lower Na +/H+ exchanger (NHE) 3 protein abundance (neonate 0.11 ± 0.05 vs. adult 0.64 ± 0.07; P , 0.05) and a higher NHE8 protein abundance (neonate 1.0 ± 0.01 vs. adult 0.13 ± 0.09; P , 0.001) compared with adults. To examine if neonates can adapt to acidosis, neonatal mice were gavaged with either acid or ...
The objective of this experiment was to examine the effect of Subacute Ruminal Acidosis (SARA) on milk fatty acid (FA) profiles with emphasis on odd-chain and branched-chain FA. Sixteen multiparous Holstein dairy cows (618±35 kg of body weight, 221±32 days in milk) were used in a randomized complete-block design. During week 1, all cows received a high-forage diet (90% chopped grass hay, 5% grain mix, 5% protein supplement, dry-basis; HF). During weeks 2 through 4, cows either continued receiving the HF diet or received a low-fiber diet (38% chopped grass hay, 57% grain mix, 5% protein supplement, dry-basis; LF). Milk yield and dry matter intake were recorded daily, milk samples were collected twice weekly and ruminal pH was continuously recorded during the last 48 h of each week. Statistical analysis was conducted on weekly measuring Proc Mixed of SAS accounting for repeated measurement. The model included the fixed effects of diet, week, their interaction and block. Helmert contrasts were used
We have acid all around us. Weve got acid rain, acid reflux, and acid rock. Theres acidophilus, antacids, and acidic comments. Im not trying to get Forrest Gump on you; the destination for this rant is the fact that many acids around us are hidden.

These acids, when left unchecked, can bring about an unhealthy state of tune in our bodies. Mind you, Im not talking death here (at least not immediately); Im sharing the type of acid effects that sneak up on you quietly, like a thief in the night. This insidious acid health condition is called low-grade, chronic acidosis. Im trying to stir your pot a little, because you should be angry about what causes this under-the-radar condition.

The prevalence of subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA) was determined in 197 dairy cows in 18 herds in the Dutch province of Friesland. Samples of rumen fluid were taken by rumenocentesis from between five and 19 animals on each farm and the pH of each sample was determined. The body condition of 139 of the cows was scored approximately three weeks before they calved and three weeks after they calved. The overall prevalence of SARA was 13·8 per cent, and the prevalence on individual farms ranged between 0 per cent (on seven of the farms) and 38 per cent (on one farm). The stage of lactation did not influence the prevalence of SARA but the cows with the condition lost more body condition over the calving period.. ...
In this pilot, prospective, randomized crossover trial, we found that treatment with oral sodium bicarbonate therapy improved vascular endothelial function measured by FMD in patients with CKD (eGFR 15-44 ml/min per 1.73 m2) with low serum bicarbonate levels. Additionally, we found that sodium bicarbonate treatment resulted in significant increases in serum phosphate and iFGF23 levels. To our knowledge, this is the first interventional trial examining the effect of alkali replacement for metabolic acidosis on vascular endothelial function in patients with CKD.. Vascular endothelial dysfunction begins early in the course of CKD (3). Brachial artery FMD is associated with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in patients with CKD (32). Thus, therapeutic interventions that improve endothelial function in patients with CKD may significantly improve cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Acid retention is common in patients with CKD because the kidney loses the ability to synthesize ammonia and ...

Preventable measures to avoid Fetal Acidosis include providing the mother with an adequate oxygen supply throughout labor and delivery. This will help to ensure the babys safety. Fetal monitoring devices are used during labor to track the babys oxygen level and heart rate, and can assist in detecting fetal distress. Electronic fetal monitoring provides information on the status of the fetus in relation to the frequency and duration of contractions. Close examination of the data provided will alert medical professionals to the babys tolerance to the conditions of labor. A blood sample may also be taken from the babys scalp during labor to test for elevated lactate levels, which if present, may indicate Fetal Acidosis. Upon discovery of Fetal Acidosis, or any other fetal distress, immediate action must be taken by medical professionals to prevent harm to the baby. ...

Introduction Acute metabolic acidosis of non-renal origin is usually a result of either lactic or ketoacidosis, both of which are associated with a high anion gap. There is increasing recognition, however, of a group of acidotic patients who have a large anion gap that is not explained by either keto- or lactic acidosis nor, in most cases, is inappropriate fluid resuscitation or ingestion of exogenous agents the cause. Methods Plasma ultrafiltrate from patients with diabetic ketoacidosis, lactic acidosis, acidosis of unknown cause, normal anion gap metabolic acidosis, or acidosis as a result of base loss were examined enzymatically for the presence of low molecular weight anions including citrate, isocitrate, ?-ketoglutarate, succinate, malate and d-lactate. The results obtained from the study groups were compared with those obtained from control plasma from normal volunteers. Results In five patients with lactic acidosis, a significant increase in isocitrate (0.71 ± 0.35 mEq l-1), ...

About Metabolic Acidosis Metabolic acidosis is a chronic condition commonly caused by CKD and is believed to accelerate the progression of kidney deterioration. Metabolic acidosis is estimated to pose a health risk to approximately three million patients with CKD in the United States and currently there are no U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved chronic therapies for treating metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis is a serious condition in which the body has accumulated too much acid and occurs when a patients kidneys can no longer excrete sufficient acid or produce enough bicarbonate to balance acid production. The prevalence and severity of metabolic acidosis in people with CKD progressively rises as kidney function declines. As a chronic condition, metabolic acidosis is associated with an increased risk of CKD progression and death. It is also associated with an increased risk of muscle wasting and loss of bone density.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Concentrations of metabolic intermediates in kidneys of rats with metabolic acidosis. AU - Alleyne, G. A O. PY - 1968. Y1 - 1968. N2 - GOODMAN et al.1 have shown that there is enhanced renal gluconeogenesis in the rat with chronic metabolic acidosis. The enhancement of renal gluconeogenesis with glut-amine, glutamate, α-ketoglutarate and oxaloacetate, but not with fructose or glycerol as substrates, led to the tentative conclusions that in acidosis there is acceleration of one of the steps in the gluconeogenesis pathway distal to oxaloacetate.

Delta ratio is a formula that can be used to assess elevated anion gap metabolic acidosis and to evaluate whether a mixed acid base disorder (metabolic acidosis) is present. The anion gap (AG) is calculated first and if an anion gap is present, results in either a high anion gap metabolic acidosis (HAGMA) or a normal anion gap acidosis (NAGMA). A low anion gap is usually an oddity of measurement, rather than a clinical concern. The equation for calculating the Delta Ratio is: (AG - 12) ___________ (24 - [HCO3¯]) and reflects either an increase in the anion gap or a decrease in the bicarbonate concentration ([HCO3¯]). The ratio gives one of four results: 1. < 0.4 due to a pure NAGMA 2. 0.4 - 0.8 due to a mixed NAGMA + HAGMA 3. 0.8 - 2.0 due to a pure HAGMA 4. >2.0 due to a mixed HAGMA + metabolic alkalosis (or pre-existing compensated respiratory acidosis) Results 2 and 4 are the ones which have mixed acid-base disorders. Results 1. and 4. are oddities, mathematically speaking: Result 1: if ...
Extracellular tumor acidosis largely results from an exacerbated glycolytic flux in cancer and cancer-associated cells. Conversely, little is known about how tumor cells adapt their metabolism to acidosis. Here, we demonstrate that long-term exposure of cancer cells to acidic pH leads to a metabolic reprogramming toward glutamine metabolism. This switch is triggered by the need to reduce the production of protons from glycolysis and further maintained by the NAD(+)-dependent increase in SIRT1 deacetylase activity to ensure intracellular pH homeostasis. A consecutive increase in HIF2α activity promotes the expression of various transporters and enzymes supporting the reductive and oxidative glutamine metabolism, whereas a reduction in functional HIF1α expression consolidates the inhibition of glycolysis. Finally, in vitro and in vivo experiments document that acidosis accounts for a net increase in tumor sensitivity to inhibitors of SIRT1 and glutaminase GLS1. These findings highlight the ...
Intensive care treatment of severe mixed metabolic acidosis.: We report a case of severe metabolic acidosis associated with acute renal failure and septicaemia
As mentioned above there is a lag period between introducing a new diet and the rumen adjusting to more efficiently utilise the new diet. Studies have shown that the rumen papillae respond to dietary changes by changing size and shape in order to increase or decrease the surface area of the rumen wall and thus speed up or slow down absorption of nutrients. It is estimated that a period of about 4-6 weeks is required before papillae adjust to a new diet and consequentially prevent acid build up. Microbial populations have also been observed adjusting to changes in diet and may also be responsible for the lag period. It is recommended that cows switching to a high grain diet be transitioned slowly by gradually increasing their grain intake and therefore allow the rumen to adapt to the new diet.. One of the major problems with high grain diets is the lack of rumination it causes and therefore the lack of saliva produced. Saliva production in cows can easily exceed 100 litres a day and is essential ...
NH3 production by renal cortical mitochondria was studied under conditions of metabolic acidosis induced in vivo and with pH manipulations of the media bathing mitochondria from normal rats. A HCO3- medium equilibrated with O2 and CO2 was utilized with glutamine concentrations of either 10 or 0.5 mM. With chronic acidosis NH3 production increased significantly at either substrate concentration. Similar results were obtained with rotenone in the media, both with chronic acidosis and with acidosis of 3 h duration, indicating that increased glutamine entry and/or phosphate-dependent glutaminase (PDG) activity accounts for the increased ammoniagenesis. In contrast to acidosis induced in vivo, mitochondria from normal rats subjected to a diminution in medium pH, either by manipulation of HCO3 concentration or PCO2, significantly decrease NH3 production. Mitochondrial studies with rotenone, as well as studies of solubilized PDG, suggest that a low pH diminishes NH3 production by directly altering PDG activity

Severity of acidosis affects long-term survival in COPD patients with hypoxemia after intensive care unit discharge Sinem Gungor, Feyza Kargin, Ilim Irmak, Fulya Ciyiltepe, Eylem Acartürk Tunçay, Pinar Atagun Guney, Emine Aksoy, Birsen Ocakli, Nalan Adiguzel, Zuhal Karakurt Respiratory Intensive Care Unit Clinic, Sureyyapasa Chest Diseases and Thoracic Surgery Teaching and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey Background: Patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with acute respiratory failure (ARF) due to COPD have high mortality and morbidity. Acidosis has several harmful effects on hemodynamics and metabolism, and the current knowledge regarding the relationship between respiratory acidosis severity on the short- and long-term survival of COPD patients is limited. We hypothesized that COPD patients with severe acidosis would have a poorer short- and long-term prognosis compared with COPD patients with mild-to-moderate acidosis. Patients and methods: This retrospective observational cohort
Treatment of acute metabolic acidosis by alkali therapy is usually indicated to raise and maintain the plasma pH to greater than 7.20. In the following two circumstances this is particularly important. When the serum pH is below 7.20, a continued fall in the serum HCO3- level may result in a significant drop in pH.. ...
The endocrine system is a complicated structure through which chemical messengers create feedback loops of the hormones released by internal glands of an organism directly into the circulatory system. This system is essential to a healthy human body. There are numerous ways in which metabolic acidosis interrupts this system to try to achieve a more equal acid-base balance. For example metabolic acidosis can create a negative calcium balance which causes resorption from the bones. This is the process by which osteoclasts break down the bone tissue to keep calcium levels in the blood normal. This can lead to hypercalciuria, too much calcium in the blood which usually comes out in urine. It also means you could have a propensity to kidney stones. Metabolic acidosis can also result in hypophosphataemia, a phosphorous deficiency that is caused by renal waste. ...

Definitions of acidosis. What is acidosis: An abnormal increase in the acidity of the bodys fluids, caused either by accumulation of acids or by depletion of bicarbonates.. Synonyms: acidotic, apotheosis, arteriosclerosis, asbestosis, carbon dioxide acidosis, cirrhosis, diabetic acidosis, diagnosis, fibrosis, heterosis, hypnosis, ketoacidosis, metabolic acidosis, pathology, respiratory acidosis, starvation acidosis
Metabolic acidosis is a primary reduction in bicarbonate, typically with a compensatory reduction in carbon dioxide partial pressure (Pco2); pH may be markedly low or slightly subnormal. Metabolic acidosis is categorized as high or normal anion gap based on the presence or absence of unmeasured anions in serum. The condition of metabolic acidosis occurs when…

Pulmonary artery pressure usually rises during acidosis. There are a number of factors which might be responsible for the development of this disorder. Here it will explain your question: Acidosis is caused by an accumulation of CO2 which combines with water in the body to produce carbonic acid, thus, lowering the pH of the blood. Acutely the acidosis will cause a right shift of the oxygen dissociation curve. 1 2 The hallmark of septic shock is marked peripheral arteriolar vasodilation, which results in low systemic vascular resistance, high cardiac output, severe hypotension, and inadequate tissue perfusion. Local effects of hypercarbia, and the resulting ...
A system of continual data acquisition of feed intake and ruminal pH has been developed for studying subacute acidosis in finishing steers. Feed intake is monitored with feedbunks which are suspended from weigh cells. Ruminal pH is monitored with submersible pH electrodes suspended in the rumen. Numerous anecdotal observations of subacute acidosis have been made throughout the feeding periods of several steers, providing information unlikely to be recognized during a planned trial. Therefore, this model for studying subacute acidosis offers many unique opportunities for enhancing our understanding of the interactions between feed intake and acidosis.
Results did not allow risk reduction and NNT to be calculated. Previous studies of administering parenteral fluid and/or alkali therapy to neonates with metabolic acidosis have included infants with clinically suspected poor perfusion (e.g. low blood pressure, poor cutaneous perfusion). Other studies of the effect of early volume expansion on mortality and morbidity have included unselected preterm infants not known to have metabolic acidosis. We found only two studies addressing the benefit of administering intravenous bolus of albumin or normal saline to normovolaemic neonates with metabolic acidosis. They do not however provide a clear answer to the main question of this article in view of few methodological weaknesses. The first study was not blinded. The second study was not randomised and no placebo group was available. Although both studies reported an improvement in the pH and base deficit with volume expansion (although less marked than with bicarbonate), none of these reports included ...
Metabolic acidosis is a disorder frequently encountered in emergency medicine and intensive care medicine. As literature has been enriched with new data concerning the management of metabolic acidosis, the French Intensive Care Society (Société de Réanimation de Langue Française [SRLF]) and the French Emergency Medicine Society (Société Française de Médecine dUrgence [SFMU]) have developed formalized recommendations from experts using the GRADE methodology. The fields of diagnostic strategy, patient assessment, and referral and therapeutic management were addressed and 29 recommendations were made: 4 recommendations were strong (Grade 1), 10 were weak (Grade 2), and 15 were experts opinions. A strong agreement from voting participants was obtained for all recommendations. The application of Henderson-Hasselbalch and Stewart methods for the diagnosis of the metabolic acidosis mechanism is discussed and a diagnostic algorithm is proposed. The use of ketosis and venous and capillary ...

BACKGROUND: Patients presenting with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) are hypovolemic, hyperglycemic, and acidotic. First line therapy is administration of resuscitation crystalloid fluids to increase systemic pressure for maintenance of tissue perfusion. Volume repletion can be measured by monitoring several physiological indicators including mean arterial pressure (MAP) and urine output (UO), where an increase of both indicate an improvement in volume status. The crystalloid fluid recommended by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is normal saline (NS) because it has a track record of being a safe option. However, administration of NS can induce hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis (HMA) in many patients receiving it for rapid and large volume fluid replacement in a spectrum of circumstances and in most who receive it for DKA. An alternate crystalloid, Plasma-Lyte, is a balanced electrolyte solution (BES) with composition similarities to plasma, therefore it has less potential to cause biochemical changes
Correction of acidosis in hemodialysis (HD) decreases protein degradation. The effect of the correction of chronic metabolic acidosis in chronic renal failure patients treated with HD was determined from the kinetics of infused L-[1-(13)C]leucine. Six HD patients were studied before (acid) and after (bicarbonate) correction of acidosis (pH: acid 7.36 +/- 0.01, bicarbonate 7.40 +/- 0.01, P , 0.005). Leucine appearance from body protein (PD) and leucine disappearance into body protein (PS) decreased significantly with correction of acidosis (PD: acid 180.6 +/- 7.3, bicarbonate 130.9 +/- 7.2 mumol.kg-1.h-1, P , 0.005; PS: acid 172.3 +/- 6.8, bicarbonate 122.0 +/- 6.8 mumol.kg-1.h-1, P , 0.005). There was no significant change in leucine oxidation or plasma amino acid concentrations. These results demonstrate that optimal correction of acidosis in HD is beneficial in terms of protein turnover and may improve long-term nutritional status in HD. ...

Molecules involved in the adaptive mechanisms that drive stress-induced disease progression constitute interesting candidates of therapeutic intervention. Here, we provide evidence of a novel role of heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPG) in the adaptive response of tumor cells to hypoxia and acidosis through increased internalization of lipoproteins, resulting in a lipid-storing phenotype and enhanced tumor-forming capacity. Patient glioblastoma tumors and cells under hypoxic and acidic stress acquired a lipid droplet (LD)-loaded phenotype, and showed an increased recruitment of all major lipoproteins, HDL, LDL, and VLDL. Stress-induced LD accumulation was associated with increased spheroid-forming capacity during reoxygenation in vitro and lung metastatic potential in vivo. On a ...
Acidosis is a major factor that determines the upper limit of exercise endurance. We have previously shown that anions usually associated with intermediary metabolism are elevated in critically ill patients with metabolic acidosis and contribute significantly to acidosis generation. This study was to determine whether volunteers with normal metabolism would exhibit similar elevations in anions associated with intermediate metabolism when exposed to a short-term physiological stress leading to a brief lactic acidosis. Physiological stress was induced on five healthy male subjects by means of a ramped exercise protocol. Blood was obtained immediately prior to and post-exercise, plasma ultrafiltrate was prepared and analysed immediately both by enzyme assay and liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray-mass spectrometry (LC/ESI-MS). Metabolic acidosis concomitant with a significant increase in blood lactate occurred in each subject, but in addition, anions normally associated with intermediate ...
Metabolic acidosis occurs when the body produces too much acid. It can also occur when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body. There are several types of metabolic acidosis. Diabetic acidosis develops when acidic substances, known as ketone bodies, build up in the body. This most often occurs with uncon
Subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA) is one of many challenges that a dairy cow can face during her lactation, affecting not just milk production, but also general health and longevity. Though not easily detected, SARA can have a serious impact on dairy production.
OBJECTIVES: Infants who develop encephalopathy after perinatal asphyxia have an increased risk of death and adverse neurologic outcome. Conflicting results exist concerning outcome in healthy infants with metabolic acidosis at birth. The aim of the current study was to evaluate whether metabolic acidosis at birth in term infants who appear healthy is associated with long-term developmental abnormalities. METHODS: From a population-based cohort (14 687 deliveries), 78 infants were prospectively identified as having metabolic acidosis (umbilical artery pH , 7.05 and base deficit in the extracellular fluid .12.0 mmol/L). Two matched controls per case were selected. The child health and school health care records were scrutinized for developmental abnormalities. RESULTS: Outcome measures at 6.5 years of age for 227 of 234 children (97%) were obtained. No differences were found concerning neurologic or behavioral problems in need of referral action or neurodevelopmental diagnosis in comparison of ...

TO THE EDITOR:. A frequently encountered problem in clinical practice is a patient who presents with acidosis and hyperglycemia. It has been my experience that the correct calculation of the anion gap in the face of hyperglycemia is often confusing. An example would best serve to illustrate the point. Assume a patient who is admitted with new-onset diabetes mellitus and has the following blood test results: glucose level, 700 mg/dL; sodium level, 128 mEq/L; chloride level, 97 mEq/L; and bicarbonate level, 21 mEq/L. The anion gap in this patient is [Na] ?([Bicarbonate] + [Cl]) = 128 ?(97 + 21) = 10, a value within normal limits; the patient has a mild non-anion gap acidosis. However, physicians often correct the sodium level in the face of hyperglycemia by adding 1.6 mEq/L to the sodium concentration for each 100-mg/dL increment in glucose levels above 100 mg/dL. This correction does not apply to the calculation of the anion gap in patients with acidosis and hyperglycemia because the water moving ...
Metabolic acidosis is an acid-base disorder characterized by a decrease in serum pH that results from either a primary decrease in plasma bicarbonate concentration ([HCO3 -]) or an increase in hydrogen ion concentration ([H+]). It is not a disease but rather a biochemical abnormality.
