What causes metabolic acidosis?

There are three major forms of metabolic acidosis that occur in the human body. The first type is diabetic acidosis where ketones build up in the blood. The second type is lactic acidosis, when the body produces too much lactic acid, and the third type of acidosis is hyperchloremic acidosis which occurs when there is a loss of sodium bicarbonates.

Can respiratory acidosis and metabolic acidosis occur at the same time?

Yes in cases like copd and renal failure ...... opioid poisoning with sepsis. The cause of respiratory acidosis is the excess C02 secondary to the rate of respiration (breathing rate low or circulatory problems). Lactic acidosis is due to the incomplete metabolism of glucose. Other forms of metabolic acidosis are symptomatic of kidney failure.


When lactic acid builds up it causes what?

Lactic acidosis. Muscle ache, burning, rapid breathing, nausea, stomach pain: If you've experienced the unpleasant feeling of lactic acidosis you will remember it. It's temporary. It happens when too much acid builds up in your bloodstream. The most common reason it happens is intense exercise.The symptoms include a burning feeling in your muscles, cramps, nausea , weakness, andfeeling exhausted. It's your body's way to tell you to stop what you're doing. The soreness you sometimes feel in your muscles a day or two after an intense workout isn't from lactic acidosis. It's your muscles recovering from the workout you gave them.


Distinguish between acidosis and alkalosis resulting from respiratory and metabolic factors?

1)Respiratory acidosis results from carbon dioxide retention; respiratory alkalosis occurs when carbon dioxide is eliminated faster than it is produced. 2)Metabolic acidosis occurs when fixed acids (lactic acid, ketone bodies, and others) accumulate in the blood or when bicarbonate is lost from the body; metabolic alkalosis occurs when bicarbonate levels are excessive. Distinguishing factors between respiratory and metabolic acidosis is that in respiratory acidosis, the CO2 is increased while the bicarbonate is either normal (uncompensated) or increased (compensated). Compensation occurs if respiratory acidosis is present, and a chronic phase is entered with partial buffering of the acidosis through renal bicarbonate retention.


What is the medical application of acidosis?

The medical application of acidosis is to rectify the the pH of the blood. There are two main type of acidosis which are respiratory and metabolic acidosis.


What is the medical term meaning Blood pH of 7.3?

This is known as an acidosis, which can either be respiratory (conditions such as COPD, emphysema/bronchitis, restrictive ventilation defects, pulmonary fibrosis etc) that prevent carbon dioxide leaving the body, or metabolic (exercise, aspirin overdose, lactic acid production due to sepsis etc).


Does rebreathing result in acidosis or alkalosis?

Acidosis


Examples of acidosis?

Acidosis is high levels of acidity in the blood and other body tissue, occuring when the arterial pH falls below 7.35. The two types of acidosis are metabolic acidosis and respiratory acidosis.


Metabolic acidosis?

DefinitionMetabolic acidosis is a condition in which there is too much acid in the body fluids.Alternative NamesAcidosis - metabolicCauses, incidence, and risk factorsMetabolic acidosis occurs when the body produces too much acid, or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body. There are several types of metablic acidosis:Diabetic acidosis (also called diabetic ketoacidosis and DKA) develops when substances known as ketone bodies, which are acidic, build up during uncontrolled diabetesHyperchloremic acidosis results from excessive loss of sodium bicarbonate from the body, as can happen with severe diarrheaLactic acidosis is a buildup of lactic acid. It can be caused by: AlcoholCancerExercising for a very long timeLiver failureLow blood sugar (hypoglycemia)Medications such as salicylatesProlonged lack of oxygen from shock, heart failure, or severe anemiaSeizuresOther causes of metabolic acidosis include:Kidney disease(distal tubular acidosis and proximal renal tubular acidosis)Poisoning by aspirin, ethylene glycol (found in antifreeze), or methanolSevere dehydrationSymptomsMost symptoms are caused by the underlying disease or condition that is causing the metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis itself usually causes rapid breathing. Confusion or lethargy may also occur. Severe metabolic acidosis can lead to shock or death. In some situations, metabolic acidosis can be a mild, chronic (ongoing) condition.Signs and testsArterial blood gasSerum electrolytesUrine pHArterial blood gas analysis or a serum electrolytes test (such as a basic metabolic panel) will confirm acidosis is present and determine whether it is respiratory acidosis or metabolic acidosis.Other test may be needed to determine the cause of the acidosis.TreatmentTreatment is aimed at the underlying condition. In certain circumstances, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) may be given to improve the acidity of the blood.Expectations (prognosis)What can be expected will depend on the underlying disease causing the metabolic acidosis.ComplicationsWhen very severe, metabolic acidosis can lead to shock or death.Calling your health care providerSeek medical treatment if you develop symptoms of any disease that can cause metabolic acidosis.PreventionKeeping type 1 diabetes under control may help prevent diabetic ketoacidosis, one type of metabolic acidosis.ReferencesSeifter JL.

Acidosis?

DefinitionAcidosis is a condition in which there is excessive acid in the body fluids. It is the opposite of alkalosis (a condition in which there is excessive base in the body fluids).Causes, incidence, and risk factorsThe kidneys and lungs maintain the balance (proper pH level) of chemicals called acids and bases in the body. Acidosis occurs when acid builds up or when bicarbonate (a base) is lost. Acidosis is classified as either respiratory acidosis or metabolic acidosis.Respiratory acidosis develops when there is too much carbon dioxide (an acid) in the body. This type of acidosis is usually caused by a decreased ability to remove carbon dioxide from the body through effective breathing. Other names for respiratory acidosis are hypercapnic acidosis and carbon dioxide acidosis. Causes of respiratory acidosis include:Chest deformities, such as kyphosisChest injuriesChest muscle weaknessChronic lung diseaseOveruse of sedative drugsMetabolic acidosis develops when too much acid is produced or when the kidneys cannot remove enough acid from the body. There are several types of metabolic acidosis:Diabetic acidosis (also called diabetic ketoacidosis and DKA) develops when substances called ketone bodies (which are acidic) build up during uncontrolled diabetes.Hyperchloremic acidosis results from excessive loss of sodium bicarbonate from the body, as can happen with severe diarrhea.Lactic acidosisis a buildup of lactic acid. This can be caused by: AlcoholCancerExercising vigorously for a very long timeLiver failureLow blood sugar (hypoglycemia)Medications such as salicylatesProlonged lack of oxygen from shock, heart failure, or severe anemiaSeizuresOther causes of metabolic acidosis include:Kidney disease(distal renal tubular acidosis and proximal renal tubular acidosis)Poisoning by aspirin, ethylene glycol (found in antifreeze), or methanolSevere dehydrationSymptomsSee: Metabolic acidosis or Respiratory acidosisSigns and testsArterial or venous blood gas analysisSerum electrolytesUrine pHAn arterial blood gas analysis or serum electrolytes test, such as a basic metabolic panel, will confirm that acidosis is present and indicate whether it is metabolic acidosis or respiratory acidosis. Other tests may be needed to determine the cause of the acidosis.TreatmentTreatment depends on the cause. See the specific types of acidosis.Expectations (prognosis)Acidosis can be dangerous if untreated. Many cases respond well to treatment.ComplicationsSee the specific types of acidosis.Calling your health care providerAlthough there are several types of acidosis, all will cause symptoms that require treatment by your health care provider.PreventionPrevention depends on the cause of the acidosis. Normally, people with healthy kidneys and lungs do not experience significant acidosis.ReferencesSeifter JL. Acid-base disorders. In: Goldman L, Ausiello D, eds. Cecil Medicine. 23rd ed.

How would athletes be affected if the process of lactid acid fermentation did not take place?

Lactic acid is produced during normal activity. Staying hydrated and keeping a balance between electrolytes keeps lactic acid from building up in muscles. However, strenuous activities can dehydrate the body, causing shifts in electrolytes. This can result in lactic acidosis which builds up in the muscles.At first, the person feels weak. If they rehydrate, they can stop the negative effects. However, if they do not rehydrate, lactic acidosis can progress. Respirations increase to try to lower the body's acidic level. However, respirations by itself cannot correct the condition without replacing fluids and electrolytes. Without this replacement, the muscles begin to spasm. The stomach can clench and cause pain and nausea. Leg muscles ache; weakness progresses. If the person cannot drink enough, they will need fluid replacement by IV.Athletes must stay hydrated, not only with plain water but with fluids containing electrolytes, like Gatorade, or they risk going into lactic acidosis.
