Blockade of ATP-sensitive potassium channels in cerebral arterioles inhibits vasoconstriction from hypocapnic alkalosis in cats. (1/239)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Recent studies have shown that the cerebral arteriolar dilation from hypercapnic acidosis is blocked by agents which inhibit KATP channels. These findings suggested that this response is due to opening of KATP channels. Because the repose to CO2 is a continuum, with hypercapnic acidosis causing vasodilation and hypocapnic alkalosis causing vasoconstriction, it would be expected that the response to hypocapnic alkalosis would be due to closing of KATP channels. There are no studies of the effect of inhibition of KATP channels on the response to hypocapnic alkalosis. METHODS: We investigated the effect of 3 agents that in earlier studies were found to inhibit KATP channels--NG-nitro-L-arginine, hydroxylysine, and glyburide--on the cerebral arteriolar constriction caused by graded hypocapnia induced by hyperventilation in anesthetized cats equipped with cranial windows. RESULTS: Hypocapnic alkalosis caused dose-dependent vasoconstriction that was inhibited completely by each of the 3 inhibitors of KATP channels. The blockade induced by these agents was eliminated in the presence of topical L-lysine (5 micromol/L). CONCLUSIONS: The findings show that agents which inhibit ATP-sensitive potassium channels in cerebral arterioles inhibit the vasoconstriction from hypocapnic alkalosis. These and earlier results showing that inhibition of KATP channels inhibited dilation from hypercapnic acidosis demonstrate that the response to CO2 in cerebral arterioles is mediated by the opening and closing of KATP channels.  (+info)

Intracellular pH regulation by HCO3-/Cl- exchange is activated during early mouse zygote development. (2/239)

We report here that at least one major pHi-regulatory mechanism, the HCO3-/Cl- exchanger, is quiescent in unfertilized mouse eggs but becomes fully activated during early development following fertilization. Zygotes (8-12 h postfertilization) exhibited a marked intracellular alkalinization upon external Cl- removal, which is indicative of active HCO3-/Cl- exchangers, in contrast to the very small response observed in eggs. In addition, efflux of Cl- from eggs upon external Cl- removal was much slower than that from zygotes, indicating additional pathways for Cl- to cross the plasma membrane in zygotes. Furthermore, while zygotes quickly recovered from an induced alkalosis, eggs exhibited only a slow, incomplete recovery. Following in vitro fertilization (IVF), increased HCO3-/Cl- exchanger activity was first detectable about 4 h postfertilization and reached the maximal level after about 8 h. The upregulation of HCO3-/Cl- exchanger activity after fertilization appeared to occur by activation of existing, inactive exchangers rather than by synthesis or transport of new exchangers, as the increase in activity following IVF was unaffected by inhibition of protein synthesis or by disruption of the Golgi apparatus or the cytoskeleton. This activation may depend on the Ca2+ transients which follow fertilization, as suppression of these transients, using the Ca2+ chelator BAPTA, reduced subsequent upregulation of HCO3-/Cl- exchanger activity by about 50%. Activation of pHi-regulatory systems may be a widespread feature of the earliest period of embryonic development, not restricted to species such as marine invertebrates as previously believed.  (+info)

H+-K+-ATPases: regulation and role in pathophysiological states. (3/239)

Molecular cloning experiments have identified the existence of two H+-K+-ATPases (HKAs), colonic and gastric. Recent functional and molecular studies indicate the presence of both transporters in the kidney, which are presumed to mediate the exchange of intracellular H+ for extracellular K+. On the basis of these studies, a picture is evolving that indicates differential regulation of HKAs at the molecular level in acid-base and electrolyte disorders. Of the two transporters, gastric HKA is expressed constitutively along the length of the collecting duct and is responsible for H+ secretion and K+ reabsorption under normal conditions and may be stimulated with acid-base perturbations and/or K+ depletion. This regulation may be species specific. To date there are no data to indicate that the colonic HKA (HKAc) plays a role in H+ secretion or K+ reabsorption under normal conditions. However, HKAc shows adaptive regulation in pathophysiological conditions such as K+ depletion, NaCl deficiency, and proximal renal tubular acidosis, suggesting an important role for this exchanger in potassium, HCO-3, and sodium (or chloride) reabsorption in disease states. The purpose of this review is to summarize recent functional and molecular studies on the regulation of HKAs in physiological and pathophysiological states. Possible signals responsible for regulation of HKAs in these conditions will be discussed. Furthermore, the role of these transporters in acid-base and electrolyte homeostasis will be evaluated in the context of genetically altered animals deficient in HKAc.  (+info)

pH regulation of K(+) efflux from myocytes in isolated rat hearts: (87)Rb, (7)Li, and (31)P NMR studies. (4/239)

This study investigates the effects of intracellular (pH(i)) and extracellular pH (pH(e)) on the efflux of Rb(+) and Li(+) in isolated rat hearts. (87)Rb and (7)Li NMR were used to measure Rb(+) and Li(+) content, respectively, of hearts, and (31)P NMR was used to monitor pH(i), pH(e), and phosphate levels. After 30-min equilibration with Rb(+) or Li(+), effluxes were initiated by switching perfusion to a Rb(+)- or Li(+)-free, high-K(+) (20.7 mM) Krebs-Henseleit buffer with 15 microM bumetanide. Monensin (2 microM) increased pH(i) from 7.10 +/- 0.05 to 7.32 +/- 0.07 and resulted in activation of Rb(+) efflux; the first-order rate constant (k x 10(3), in min(-1)) increased from 42 +/- 2 to 116 +/- 16. Glibenclamide (4 microM) did not inhibit monensin-activated Rb(+) efflux (k = 110 +/- 17), whereas quinine (0.2 mM) slightly inhibited it by 19 +/- 9%. Infusion of 15 mM NH(4)Cl during Rb(+) washout increased k for Rb(+) efflux by 93% (81 +/- 8), which was glibenclamide and quinine insensitive, and caused a transient increase in pH(i) to 7.25 +/- 0.08. Intracellular Li(+) inhibited NH(4)Cl-stimulated Rb(+) efflux by 55%. Monensin and NH(4)Cl stimulated Li(+) efflux by 40%, increasing k from 29 +/- 3 to 43 +/- 7 and 41 +/- 3, respectively. The stimulation was not sensitive to 10 microM dimethylamiloride. Intracellular acidosis that resulted from the washout of NH(4)Cl (pH 6.86 +/- 0.2) slightly inhibited Rb(+) efflux (k = 36 +/- 5), whereas NH(4)Cl itself in the absence of pH(i) changes did not markedly affect Rb(+) efflux. A moderate increase in pH(i) (7.17 +/- 0.06) produced by washout of 15 mM 2, 2-dimethylpropionate (DMP)-Tris from hearts preequilibrated with DMP did not markedly affect Rb(+) efflux. Neither global alkalosis (pH(i) 7.4, pH(e) 7.55) nor acidosis (pH(i) approximately pH(e) 6.8) produced by 3 mM Tris base or 5 mM MES, respectively, affected Rb(+) efflux. We suggest that intracellular alkalosis stimulates Rb(+) (K(+)) and Li(+) effluxes by activating a nonselective sarcolemmal K(+) (Li(+))/cation exchanger or a K(+) (Li(+))-anion symporter.  (+info)

Renal responses of trout to chronic respiratory and metabolic acidoses and metabolic alkalosis. (5/239)

Exposure to hyperoxia (500-600 torr) or low pH (4.5) for 72 h or NaHCO(3) infusion for 48 h were used to create chronic respiratory (RA) or metabolic acidosis (MA) or metabolic alkalosis in freshwater rainbow trout. During alkalosis, urine pH increased, and [titratable acidity (TA) - HCO(-)(3)] and net H(+) excretion became negative (net base excretion) with unchanged NH(+)(4) efflux. During RA, urine pH did not change, but net H(+) excretion increased as a result of a modest rise in NH(+)(4) and substantial elevation in [TA - HCO(-)(3)] efflux accompanied by a large increase in inorganic phosphate excretion. However, during MA, urine pH fell, and net H(+) excretion was 3.3-fold greater than during RA, reflecting a similar increase in [TA - HCO(-)(3)] and a smaller elevation in phosphate but a sevenfold greater increase in NH(+)(4) efflux. In urine samples of the same pH, [TA - HCO(-)(3)] was greater during RA (reflecting phosphate secretion), and [NH(+)(4)] was greater during MA (reflecting renal ammoniagenesis). Renal activities of potential ammoniagenic enzymes (phosphate-dependent glutaminase, glutamate dehydrogenase, alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase, alanine aminotransferase, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase) and plasma levels of cortisol, phosphate, ammonia, and most amino acids (including glutamine and alanine) increased during MA but not during RA, when only alanine aminotransferase increased. The differential responses to RA vs. MA parallel those in mammals; in fish they may be keyed to activation of phosphate secretion by RA and cortisol mobilization by MA.  (+info)

The pathophysiological and molecular basis of Bartter's and Gitelman's syndromes. (6/239)

Molecular defects affecting the transport of sodium, potassium and chloride in the nephron through the ROMK K+ channel, Na+/K+/2Cl- cotransporter, the Na+/Cl- cotransporter and chloride channel have been identified in patients with Bartter's and Gitelman's syndromes. Defects of the angiotensin II type I receptor and CFTR have also being described. These defects are simple (i.e., most are single amino acid substitutions) but affect key elements in tubular transport. The simplicity of the genetic defects may explain why the inheritance of these conditions remains unclear in most kindreds (i.e., not just recessive or dominant) and emphasises the crucial importance of the conformational structure of these channels. Application of this molecular information will allow the early genetic identification of patients with these syndromes and enable us to differentiate between the various disorders at a functional level. It may also identify a subgroup in which the heterozygous form may make patients potentially exquisitely sensitive to diuretics.  (+info)

Defective processing and expression of thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter as a cause of Gitelman's syndrome. (7/239)

Gitelman's syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder of salt wasting and hypokalemia caused by mutations in the thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter. To investigate the pathogenesis of Gitelman's syndrome, eight disease mutations were introduced into the mouse thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter and studied by functional expression in Xenopus oocytes. Sodium uptake into oocytes that expressed the wild-type clone was more than sevenfold greater than uptake into control oocytes. Uptake into oocytes that expressed the mutated transporters was not different from control. Hydrochlorothiazide reduced Na uptake by oocytes expressing the wild-type gene to control values but had no effect on oocytes expressing the mutant clones. Western blots of oocytes injected with the wild-type clone showed bands representing glycosylated (125 kDa) and unglycosylated (110 kDa) forms of the transport protein. Immunoblot of oocytes expressing the mutated clones showed only the unglycosylated protein, indicating that protein processing was disrupted. Immunocytochemistry with an antibody against the transport protein showed intense membrane staining of oocytes expressing the wild-type protein. Membrane staining was completely absent from oocytes expressing mNCC(R948X); instead, diffuse cytoplasmic staining was evident. In summary, the results show that several mutations that cause Gitelman's syndrome are nonfunctional because the mutant thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter is not processed normally, probably activating the "quality control" mechanism of the endoplasmic reticulum.  (+info)

Expression of rat kidney anion exchanger 1 in type A intercalated cells in metabolic acidosis and alkalosis. (8/239)

By enzyme-linked in situ hybridization (ISH), direct evidence is provided that acid-secreting intercalated cells (type A IC) of both the cortical and medullary collecting ducts of the rat kidney selectively express the mRNA of the kidney splice variant of anion exchanger 1 (kAE1) and no detectable levels of the erythrocyte AE1 (eAE1) mRNA. Using single-cell quantification by microphotometry of ISH enzyme reaction, medullary type A IC were found to contain twofold higher kAE1 mRNA levels compared with cortical type A IC. These differences correspond to the higher intensity of immunostaining in medullary versus cortical type A IC. Chronic changes of acid-base status induced by addition of NH(4)Cl (acidosis) or NaHCO3 (alkalosis) to the drinking water resulted in up to 35% changes of kAE1 mRNA levels in both cortical and medullary type A IC. These experiments provide direct evidence at the cellular level of kAE1 expression in type A IC and show moderate capacity of type A IC to respond to changes of acid-base status by modulation of kAE1 mRNA levels.  (+info)

too much acid.. For instance, significant stomach acid amounts are lost during prolonged vomiting periods or when stomach acid is suctioned with a stomach tubes (sometimes, performed in hospitals). Rarely, Metabolic Alkalosis develops in individuals who have ingested excessive alkali amount from substances, including soda bicarbonate. Additionally, such disorder may progress when excessive potassium or sodium loss affects the ability of the kidneys to keep under control bloods acid-base balance.. Metabolic Alkalosis can result in muscles cramps, muscle twitching, irritability or no symptoms at all. In severe Metabolic Alkalosis, tetany (muscle spasm) and prolonged contraction may develop. Blood sample obtained from the artery generally reveals that the blood is alkaline. The blood sample obtained from a vein consists of high levels of bicarbonates. A doctor generally treats the disorder by replacing electrolytes (potassium and sodium) and water while treating the underlying causes. In some ...
Volume depletion and potassium depletion may coexist in some disorders (eg vomiting). Severe potassium depletion alone can cause a metabolic alkalosis but this is typically only of mild to moderate degree. The mechanism seems to be related to an intracellular shift of H+ (intracellular acidosis) in exchange for K+. The alkalosis is generated predominantly due to non-renal mechanisms. Renal mechanisms are frequently involved in causing the potassium depletion (eg in syndromes of mineralocorticoid excess).. Volume depletion has long been implicated in maintenance of an alkalosis. The idea is that hypovolaemia is associated with increased fluid and sodium reabsorption in the proximal tubule and bicarbonate is reabsorbed in preference to chloride; the alkalosis thus being maintained. The role of volume depletion has probably been over-emphasised: the co-existing chloride depletion is the most important factor responsible for persistence of the alkalosis. Correction of the volume deficit without ...
Metabolic Alkaloses can be compensated by the actions of the lungs which serve to realign the bicarbonate buffer Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation over a period of hours. As described in Respiratory Acid-Base Control, the lungs respond to alkalosis by decreasing alveolar ventilation, essentially a physiological hypoventilation, which in turn increases the partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2). The increased PaCO2 realigns the Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation for the bicarbonate buffer and thus largely corrects the ECF pH. Consequently, a respiratory-compensated metabolic alkalosis is characterized by increased levels of ECF bicarbonate (caused by the primary metabolic disturbance) as well as increased levels of PaCO2 (caused by the respiratory compensation). More colloquially, the lungs compensate for the metabolic alkalosis by slowing Breathing Off of acid in the form of CO2, thus helping reduce ECF pH. However, it is important to point out that respiratory compensation cannot ...
Difference Between Metabolic Acidosis and Metabolic Alkalosis is that Metabolic acidosis is the acid-base imbalance characterized by excess accumulation of organic acids in the body, which is caused by abnormal metabolic processes. While Metabolic alkalosis is the acid-base imbalance caused by loss of excess H+ resulting in increased HCO3 - concentration.
Metabolic alkalosis can be caused by repeated vomiting, [2] resulting in a loss of hydrochloric acid in the stomach contents. Severe dehydration , and the consumption of alkali are other causes. It can also be caused by administration of

Cats breathed various concentrations of CO2 while being fed on either a normal diet, dietetic tuna fish plus bicarbonate or dietetic tuna fish plus THAM buffer over a period of 5 to 14 days. Total CO2 content and pCO2 of arterial blood and cerebrospinal fluid CSF were monitored periodically. Results suggest that the respiratory adjustment to chronic CO2 exposure evaluated by the PaCO2-PICO2 relationship is more closely related to the change in bicarbonate and hydrogen ion concetrations of CSF and is little influenced by the change in arterial bicarbonate and hydrogen ion concetrations. The results also suggest that there is an effective, but limited regulatory mechanism that controls the transport of bicarbonate ion across the blood-brain barrier which prevents excessive build-up of cerebrospinal fluid bicarbonate during chronic exposure to elevated CO2 levels.

To the editor: We read with interest the recent article by Swartz and colleagues that described hemodialysis with a high-chloride, low-acetate dialysate as a successful treatment for metabolic alkalosis in the postoperative patient with renal failure (1).. We recently treated a 37-year-old man who had suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen that required extensive abdominal surgery. The patient subsequently developed acute renal failure and a severe metabolic alkalosis that was secondary to nasogastric suctioning. Hemodialysis with a high-chloride, low-acetate dialysate was very effective in correcting the metabolic alkalosis.. Before dialysis the blood pH was 7.57 and plasma bicarbonate 42 ...
Liddle syndrome (LS) is a familial disease characterized by early onset hypertension (HT). Although regarded as rare, its incidence may be greater than expected because the classical findings of hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis with suppressed renin and aldosterone levels are not consistently present. Herein, we present the case of an adolescent boy and maternal relatives who were followed up with misdiagnosis of essential HT for a long duration. Clinical diagnosis of LS was confirmed on genetic analysis. Despite carrying the same mutation, the index patient and the family members manifested heterogeneous phenotypes of the disease including age at presentation, degree of HT, presence of hypokalemia and renal/cardiac complications ...
We measured cerebral intracellular pH using in vivo phosphorus-31 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy during 1 week after forebrain ischemia or sham operation in eight and seven rats, respectively. Mean maximum pH was significantly higher (p less than 0.003) in the ischemic group than in the sham-operated group (7.34 +/- 0.03 and 7.19 +/- 0.02, respectively). The difference between mean maximum pH and baseline pH (7.08 +/- 0.01 in each group) was significantly greater (p less than 0.02) in the ischemic group than in the sham-operated group. In the ischemic group, alkalosis occurred primarily after 48-72 hours of recirculation. We speculate that brain tissue alkalosis occurring chronically after ischemia is associated with delayed ischemic neuronal death. ...

Used in intravenous administration as an acidifier in severe metabolic alkalosis. It is also used orally to acidify urine and as a diuretic and as an expectorant because of its irritant properties on the respiratory mucosa. Oral and general use of this drug has fallen into disuse because of its poor efficacy and irritant properties on the gastric mucosa. Since the last update we have not found published data on its excretion in breast milk. After being absorbed in the intestine, it is rapidly metabolized in the liver as urea.

A 6-year old American La Mancha Doe presented for abdominal distention, recumbency, and hypothermia. On presentation, she was obtunded with a severe metabolic alkalosis that was nonresoponsive to fluid supplementation. An abdominal ultrasound examination revealed a distended abomasum. A proximal duodenal or pyloric obstruction was presumed based on sonographic findings and lack of response to medical therapy. An exploratory celiotomy was performed revealing no obstruction of the duodenum or pylorus. Approximately six liters of impacted feed were removed from the abomasum. A diagnosis of idiopathic abomasal impaction was made. The goat recovered with minimal complications, and is reportedly doing well several months after discharge from the hospital. Abomasal impaction is rarely reported in goats. A similar syndrome in Suffolk sheep has been described, but is most often not associated with a successful outcome. This case report describes successful surgical treatment of an abomasal impaction in ...
Cerebral blood flow was measured with the 133Xenon clearance method during short-lasting (20 minutes) and more prolonged (90 minutes) infusions of Na2CO3 solutions in anesthetized cats under controlled ventilation. The infusion protocol was regulated so as to produce a given increase in the plasma [HCO3-] in the first 15 minutes, followed by a constant high plasma level for the rest of the infusion period. A high Paco3 level was induced before and at the end of the infusion, when prolonged infusions were made. The results indicate that, in acute experiments (20 minutes), an increase in plasma [HCO3-] of 14 mEq/l does not influence CBF. During more prolonged infusions (90 minutes), an increase of 12 mEq/l produces a reduction of CBF and an increase in the CSF [HCO3-]. These changes are more pronounced when the increase in plasma [HCO3-] is more marked (18 mEq/l).. ...
All patients receiving diuretic therapy should be observed for evidence of fluid or electrolyte imbalance: namely, hyponatremia, hypochloremic alkalosis, and hypokalemia. Serum and urine electrolyte determinations are particularly important when the patient is vomiting excessively or receiving parenteral fluids. Warning signs or symptoms of fluid and electrolyte imbalance, irrespective of cause, include dryness of mouth, thirst, weakness, lethargy, drowsiness, restlessness, confusion, seizures, muscle pains or cramps, muscular fatigue, hypotension, oliguria, tachycardia, and gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea and vomiting. Hypokalemia may develop, especially with brisk diuresis, when severe cirrhosis is present or after prolonged therapy.. Interference with adequate oral electrolyte intake will also contribute to hypokalemia. Hypokalemia may cause cardiac arrhythmia and may also sensitize or exaggerate the response of the heart to the toxic effects of digitalis (e.g., increased ...

The principal signs and symptoms of overdose with furosemide are dehydration, blood volume reduction, hypotension, electrolyte imbalance, hypokalemia and hypochloremic alkalosis, and are extensions of its diuretic action.. The acute toxicity of furosemide has been determined in mice, rats and dogs. In all three, the oral LD50 exceeded 1,000 mg/kg body weight, while the intravenous LD50 ranged from 300 to 680 mg/kg. The acute intragastric toxicity in neonatal rats is 7 to 10 times that of adult rats.. The concentration of furosemide in biological fluids associated with toxicity or death is not known.. Treatment of overdosage is supportive and consists of replacement of excessive fluid and electrolyte losses. Serum electrolytes, carbon dioxide level and blood pressure should be determined frequently.

The degree of acidity or alkalinity is an important property of our blood. The acidity level increases with the increase in the level of acidic compounds in our body, or when the level of basic (also known as alkaline) compounds present in our body falls. The alkalinity level in our body increases when the reverse takes place, i.e., when the level of acidic compounds falls or when the basic compounds in the body increase. The acidity or alkalinity of any solution is indicated on the pH scale. Even a minor shift from the normal range can destroy our organs. Generally, the normal acidic level (pH) of our blood is close to 7.4. When the pH level falls below 7.35, then we say that acidosis has occurred. On the other hand, when the pH goes above 7.45, then we say that alkalosis has occurred. We have a severe case of the former, when the pH value of blood goes below 7.0; while a severe case of the latter can occur when the pH value goes above 7.5. Let us now see what are the various causes and ...
Definition of alkalosis: Change in body fluids and tissue that makes them more alkaline than normal, caused by failure of the body mechanism that maintains the bloods acid-alkali level.

Metabolic alkalosis is a metabolic condition in which the pH of tissue is elevated beyond the normal range (7.35-7.45). This is the result of decreased hydrogen ion concentration, leading to increased bicarbonate, or alternatively a direct result of increased bicarbonate concentrations. Terminology[edit] Alkalosis refe
Males (N = 10) performed nine minutes of isotonic wrist flexion in a control condition and induced alkalosis condition (0.3 g/kg of Na HCO3 1.5 hours before testing). The onset of intracellular acidosis and intracellular threshold were determined for the exercise. Acidosis was similar in both conditions at the start and up to seven minutes into the exercise. During the final 1.8 minutes the induced alkalosis condition maintained less acidity and a better level of phosphocreatine. Implication. Induced alkalosis reduces the stress of heavy exercise in the latter stages of prolonged activity. This has the potential to improve performance.. Return to Table of Contents for this issue.. ...
1. Total body, intracellular, and extracellular electrolyte and acid-base changes were studied following sodium nitrate-induced potassium and chloride depletion and subsequent selective chloride repletion.. 2. It was found that potassium and chloride depletion was associated with markedly decreased extracellular Na, K, Cl and water content. Intracellular Na increased, intracellular K decreased and there was a large transcellular redistribution of acid, i.e. extracellular alkalosis and intracellular acidosis ensued.. 3. Selective chloride repletion was associated with return of extracellular pH towards normal. Extracellular K and intracellular parameters showed very little change. Further chloride administration was followed by extracellular acidosis, but extracellular K remained low.. 4. There was close relationship between extracellular chloride and hydrogen ion concentrations ([Cl−]e and [H+]e) and extracellular potassium and intracellular hydrogen ion ([K+]e and [H+]i) but not between any ...
But is metabolic alkalosis the only acid-base disturbance that results from NG decompression? Some anecdotal experience suggests not. As noted above gastric fluid contains little potassium and almost no bicarbonate. So at first glance the answer seems to be no. However, there is a not-so-infrequent clinical scenario where NG decompression can result in metabolic acidosis. More distal fluids, such as bile, pancreatic secretions, and small bowel fluids all have high concentrations of bicarbonate (45, 92, and 50 mEq/L respectively). When NG suction is employed to decompress a small bowel obstruction, more distal fluids can be suctioned, leading to bicarbonate loss. In general though, the suctioned fluid will also contain gastric acid and there will be limited net change in acid-base status. However, if gastric acid production is limited by a proton pump inhibitor, metabolic acidosis can ensue. This was the case with a patient we were consulted on with a metabolic acidosis and bicarbonate of 13 in ...
Dr. Hussain Azhar, Assistant Professor Medical Unit ll, Civil Hospital Karachi, was invited for a lecture on ABG and Fluid Management. Dr. Hussain started with the basics of Arterial Blood Gases (ABGs), and emphasized on checking acidosis and alkalosis first. He described acidosis and alkalosis with reference to the pH values. He explained metabolic acidosis, a situation in which pH is decreased due to fall in bicarbonate ions concentration.. For the basic understandings of fluid management, he first explained different fluid compartments of the body and the percentage of total fluids. Then he enlightened about different options to balance the fluids of the body out of which the common fluids are normal saline, dextrose water and ringers lactate. Among these fluids, the normal saline is given most commonly to resuscitate the patient in emergency room.. ...
To determine the contribution of changes in extracellular osmolarity to ischemic injury, isolated guinea pig hearts were perfused with hyposmotic (220 mosM) or hyperosmotic (380 mosM) buffer. 31P NMR spectroscopy was used to follow changes in intracellular pH (pHi) and energetics. Hyposmotic buffer decreased myocardial developed pressure by 30 +/- 2% and pHi by 0.02 +/- 0.01 unit, whereas hyperosmotic buffer increased myocardial developed pressure by 34 +/- 1% and pHi by 0.14 +/- 0.01 unit. All hearts recovered to control values on restoration of isosmotic (300 mosM) buffer. The hyperosmolar-induced intracellular alkalosis and developed pressure increase were not prevented by inhibition of Na+/H+ exchange with use of 1 microM HOE-642 but were abolished with use of bicarbonate-free buffers. After 20 min of total global ischemia, hearts perfused with hyposmotic buffer showed significantly greater recoveries of developed pressure, phosphocreatine, and ATP than control hearts, but hearts perfused with

  • Medical researchers define metabolic alkalosis as a metabolic disorder that is marked by an increased pH level in the tissues that is well over the range within which it should be. (hxbenefit.com)
  • At its simplest definition, respiratory alkalosis almost always means that a person is breathing so fast that they are getting rid of carbon dioxide in excess. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Respiratory acidosis or respiratory alkalosis results when the lungs are unable to regulate pH efficiently by effecting changes in carbon dioxide exhalation. (medindia.net)
  • Primary treatment for respiratory alkalosis is reduction of respiratory rate to allow carbon dioxide to return to normal levels. (doereport.com)
