Acidic or Alkaline or normal?
7.35 - 7.40= acidic
7.41-7.45 = alkaline
respiratory acidosis or alkalosis?
elevated Paco2= respiratory acidosis
decreased Paco2= respiratory alkalosis
metabolic acidosis or alkalosis?
low HCO3 = metabolic acidosis
high HCO3 = metabolic alkalosis
partial compensation?
if pH is normal and CO2 or HCO3 is off= partial compensation
no compensation?
Abnormal pH with Paco2 or HCO3 abnormal = partial
Abnormal pH with Both Paco2 and HCO3 abnormal = no compensation
Paco2
partial pressure of CO2 in the blood
