**Respiratory Disturbances**

8
**Metabolic Disturbances**

Metabolic Acidosis

10
**General Causes of Metabolic Acidosis**

Failure of kidneys to excrete metabolic acids normally found in the body. Formation of excess quantities of metabolic acids in the body. Addition of metabolic acids to the body by ingestion or infusion of acids. Loss of base from the body fluids.

11
**Anion Gap Two ways to evaluate Na+ - Cl- - HCO3-**

Normal is 6 to 12 mEq/L Na+ + K+ - Cl- - HCO3- Normal is 10 to 16

12
Anion Gap

13
**Increased Anion Gap Greater than 20 = Accumulation of Fixed Acids**

NORMAL CHLORIDE LEVEL MUD PILERS Methanol Uremia (Azotemic Renal Failure) Elevated BUN/Creatinine Diabetic Ketoacidosis Paraldehyde (Formaldehyde and Toluene) Isopropyl alcohol Lactic (and Formic) Acidosis Ethylene Glycol Rhabdomyolysis Salicylates

14
Methanol Paraldehyde Isopropyl Alcohol Ethylene Glycol Salicylates ARF Lactic Acidosis DKA Rhabdomyolysis

15
**Normal Anion Gap INCREASED CHLORIDE LEVEL – LOSS OF BASE**

Renal Tubular Acidosis No reabsorption of HCO3- Enteric Drainage Tubes Small intestine drainage – Large amounts of base in stool Diarrhea Urinary Diversion Surgical alteration of ureters Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors Poor reabsorption of bicarbonate

16
**Maximum Anion Gap (mEq/L)**

Low Anion Gap Look at albumin Hypoalbuminemia causes a low anion gap. Normal Albumin is 4.4 g/dL For every 0.4 g/dL decrease in albumin, the anion gap will decrease by 1 mEq/L Albumin (g/dL) Maximum Anion Gap (mEq/L) 4.4 16 4.0 15 3.6 14 3.2 13 2.8 12

18
**Example of Extreme Compensation**

On 2 L/min NC pH: 6.96 PaCO2: 6.8 mm Hg PaO2: 158 mm Hg HCO3-: 1.5 mEq/L BE: mEq/L

19
**Metabolic Alkalosis Most common acid-base abnormality? Causes**

Aggressive treatment of partially compensated respiratory acidosis? Causes Loss of Acid Vomiting NG Drainage Gain of Alkali Increased ingestion of alkaline substances Excessive licorice ingestion Hypokalemia

21
**Advance Acid Base Interpretation**

22
**Classification vs. Interpretation**

Classification: Identification of acid-base disturbance and the causative element along with any compensation that may be present. Interpretation: Use of calculations to determine if compensation is appropriate or if multiple disorders are present.

23
**Compensation There is no such thing as overcompensation.**

This usually means there is a second primary disorder at work in the opposite direction. If there is no compensation OR the compensation is less than expected: Compensation is not possible because the compensatory organ is not functioning appropriately. There has not been sufficient time for compensation (renal). Another primary disorder is present and is working in the same direction.

24
**RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS**

PaCO2 pH HCO3- RESPIRATORY ACIDOSIS Acute ↑10 ↓ 0.08 ↑ 1 mEq/L Chronic ↓ 0.03 ↑ 4 mEq/L RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS ↓10 ↑ 0.08 ↓ 2 mEq/L ↑ 0.03 ↓ 5 mEq/L METABOLIC ACIDOSIS ↓ 1 ↓ 0.015 ↓ 1.2 METABOLIC ALKALOSIS ↑1 ↑0.015 ↑ 0.7

25
**Degree of Variation Allow for some degree of variation as follows:**

pH: +0.03 PaCO2: + 5 mm Hg

26
**Oakes’ Approach Primary Problem (Acidemia or Alkalemia) Primary Cause**

CO2 HCO3- Compensation Initial Classification (Technical and Functional) Determine extent of compensation and the presence of other abnormalities Determine Anion Gap for metabolic acidemia Determine Oxygenation Assess Patient Check for Accuracy Final Interpretation

27
**Factors That May Complicate Acid-Base Determination**

Chronic Lung Disease Chronic Renal Disease Therapeutic interventions Mixed Acid-Base Problems

28
**COPD Typical picture is fully compensated, respiratory acidosis.**

pH: 7.38 PaCO2: 55 mm Hg HCO3-: 31 mEq/L BE: 5 mEq/L PaO2: 55 mm Hg Let’s go through the process….

29
7.38, 55, 31 Acidosis CO2 is elevated, so there is a respiratory cause. HCO3- is out of normal range, but is not the cause. The body is compensating. Technical Classification: Fully compensated respiratory acidosis. Functional Classification: Chronic respiratory acidosis.

31
**For every 10 torr change in PaCO2 there is a 0.03 change in pH.**

7.38, 55, 31 For every 10 torr change in PaCO2 there is a 0.03 change in pH. pH D = (1.5 x .03)=0.045 =7.36 Change in CO2: +15 torr Change in pH: -0.02 Change in HCO3-: +7 mEq/L BASELINE Disorder #1 Disorder #2 pH: 7.40 PaCO2: 40 torr 55 HCO3-: 24 mEq/L

**For every 10 torr change in PaCO2 there is a 0.03 change in pH.**

7.38, 55, 31 For every 10 torr change in PaCO2 there is a 0.03 change in pH. pH D = (1.5 x .03)=0.045 =7.36 Change in CO2: +15 torr Change in pH: -0.02 Change in HCO3-: +7 mEq/L BASELINE Disorder #1 Disorder #2 pH: 7.40 7.36 PaCO2: 40 torr 55 HCO3-: 24 mEq/L

33
**For every 10 torr change in PaCO2 there is a 4 mEq/L change in HCO3-.**

7.38, 55, 31 For every 10 torr change in PaCO2 there is a 4 mEq/L change in HCO3-. HCO3- D = (1.5 x 4)=6 24+6=30 mEq/L Change in CO2: +15 torr Change in pH: -0.02 Change in HCO3-: +7 mEq/L BASELINE Disorder #1 Disorder #2 pH: 7.40 7.36 PaCO2: 40 torr 55 HCO3-: 24 mEq/L

34

7.38, 55, 31 For every 10 torr change in PaCO2 there is a 4 mEq/L change in HCO3-. HCO3- D = (1.5 x 4)=6 24+6=30 mEq/L Change in CO2: +15 torr Change in pH: -0.02 Change in HCO3-: +7 mEq/L BASELINE Disorder #1 Disorder #2 pH: 7.40 7.36 PaCO2: 40 torr 55 HCO3-: 24 mEq/L 30

35
**7.38, 55, 31 Change in CO2: +15 torr Change in pH: -0.02**

Actual HCO3- (31) doesn’t match the predicted change in HCO3-, so there must be an underlying metabolic alkalosis superimposed on the compensation. Change in CO2: +15 torr Change in pH: -0.02 Change in HCO3-: +7 mEq/L BASELINE Disorder #1 Disorder #2 pH: 7.40 7.36 PaCO2: 40 torr 55 HCO3-: 24 mEq/L 30 31

36
**For every 1 mEq/L change in HCO3- there is a 0.015 change in pH.**

7.38, 55, 31 For every 1 mEq/L change in HCO3- there is a change in pH. pH D = (1 x .015) = 0.15~0.2 = 7.38 Change in CO2: +15 torr Change in pH: -0.02 Change in HCO3-: +7 mEq/L BASELINE Disorder #1 Disorder #2 pH: 7.40 7.36 PaCO2: 40 torr 55 HCO3-: 24 mEq/L 30 31

39
COPD So our final interpretation is a fully compensated, respiratory acidosis with a secondary metabolic alkalemia. pH: 7.38 PaCO2: 55 mm Hg HCO3-: 31 mEq/L BE: 5 mEq/L PaO2: 55 mm Hg This may be due to hypochloremia and hypokalemia associated with steroids and diuretics.

40
**COPD – Relative Hyperventilation**

If the patient below develops a hypoxemic episode (e.g. pneumonia), the resulting hypoxemia may cause the patient to hyperventilate, the PaCO2 to return to “normal”, and a metabolic alkalosis to be diagnosed. This is often seen when first starting the patient on BiPAP or mechanical ventilation pH: 7.38 PaCO2: 55 mm Hg HCO3-: 31 mEq/L BE: 5 mEq/L PaO2: 55 mm Hg pH: 7.52 PaCO2: 40 mm Hg HCO3-: 31 mEq/L BE: 5 mEq/L PaO2: 50 mm Hg Solution is to only correct the PaCO2 to 52 mm Hg

41
**COPD with Lactic Acidosis**

COPD + Reduced Cardiac Output = Cellular hypoxia and Lactic Acidosis Don’t be fooled by “normal” ABGs pH: 7.38 PaCO2: 55 mm Hg HCO3-: 31 mEq/L BE: 5 mEq/L PaO2: 55 mm Hg pH: 7.38 PaCO2: 40 mm Hg HCO3-: 24 mEq/L BE: 1 mEq/L PaO2: 44 mm Hg Loss of HCO3- due to lactic acidosis.

42
**Chronic Renal Failure Chronic renal failure can distort ABG results.**

Renal ability to manipulate HCO3-, electrolyte and fluid levels is impaired. Always evaluate with a metabolic acidosis as a possible cause.

43
**Therapeutic Interventions**

Multiple therapeutic interventions can affect acid-base balance: Diuretics Steroids Electrolytes Oxygen Sodium Bicarbonate Mechanical Ventilation

44
**Let’s try another… Interpret this ABG: pH: 7.44 PaCO2: 18 mm Hg**

[BE]: -12 mEq/L [HCO3-]: 12 mEq/L PaO2: 64 mm Hg

45
**7.44, 18, 12 Normal, but on alkalotic side.**

CO2 is reduced, so there is a respiratory cause. HCO3- is out of normal range, but is not the cause as a lowered HCO3- would not cause an alkalosis. The body is compensating. Technical Classification: Fully compensated respiratory alkalosis. Functional Classification: Chronic respiratory alkalosis.

55
Interpretation Fully compensated respiratory alkalosis with simultaneous metabolic acidosis.

56
**Mixed Acid-Base Disturbances**

Sometimes a simple compensatory mechanism isn’t the reason for the normalized acid-base status. If two opposing problems co-exist (ARF causing metabolic acidosis and pain causing respiratory alkalosis), you may have what looks like one compensating for the other.

57
**Interpret this ABG: pH: 7.38 PaCO2: 20 mm Hg [HCO3-]: 17 mEq/L**

PaO2: 89 mm Hg

58
