Acid–base imbalance is an abnormality of the human body’s normal balance of acids and bases that causes the plasma pH to deviate out of the normal range (7.35 to 7.45). Mixed disorders. The presence of only one of the above derangements is called a simple acid–base disorder.
Abstract. This discussion was selected from the weekly staff conferences in the Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco.
Metabolic alkalosis is a common acid-base disturbance in hospitalized and critically ill patients. It is thought to increase morbidity and mortality in ICU patients, increase length of stay and prolong weaning in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on mechanical ventilation.

Influence of tourniquet application on venous blood sampling for serum chemistry, hematological parameters, leukocyte activation and erythrocyte mechanical properties.
Arterial blood gas analysis is used to determine the adequacy of oxygenation and ventilation, assess respiratory function and determine the acid–base balance. These data provide information regarding potential primary and compensatory processes that affect the body’s acid–base buffering system
