Consequently, the lungs’ ability to compensate for metabolic acidosis is impaired. In addition, hypoxemia may lead to hyperventilation and respiratory alkalosis. With HCO3−-based dialysis, the dialysate compartment has a relatively high PCO2 (as high as 130 mmHg), generated by the addition of a small amount of acetic acid into the HCO3− solution. Excess CO2 diffuses through the dialysis membrane into the venous blood. With normal lungs, the excess CO2 is rapidly disposed of via ventilation; when ventilation is severely compromised, however, PCO2 may rise, leading to respiratory acidosis.
Salicylates stimulate the respiratory center in the medulla, leading to hyperventilation and respiratory alkalosis. It also leads to an increased production of lactic acid and ketoacids, resulting in metabolic acidosis. Salicylic acid itself only accounts for a few mmol/L of the total acids present. 3–1 mmol/kg/day. This is derived from: • sulfuric acid resulting from the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids such as cysteine, cystine, and methionine • phosphoric acid resulting from the metabolism of phosphoproteins and phosphoesters • H+ resulting from the metabolism of cationic amino acids such as lysine and arginine.
The equation does not carry a body weight variable because it normalizes GFR to body surface area. — It is most accurate in subjects with moderate chronic kidney disease (CKD) and less accurate at the extremes of GFR, underestimating at high GFR but overestimating with advanced CKD. g. 73 m2, with or without kidney damage. 79 (if female). qxd 10 6/2/2009 3:00 PM Page 10 S.
