1

primary defect of respiratory acidosis (pH is low)

increase pCO2

2

cause of respiratory acidosis

hypoventilation (decrease ventilation)

3

compensation of respiratory acidosis

HC03- generation

4

primary defect of respiratory alkalosis (pH is high)

decrease is pCO2

5

cause of respiratory alkalosis

hyperventilation

6

compensation of respiratory alkalosis

HCO3- consumption

7

primary defect of metabolic acidosis (ph is low)

HCO3- is low

8

cause of metabolic acidosis (ph is low)

HCO3- is loss or gain of H+

9

compensation for metabolic acidosis (ph is low)

increase ventilation to decrease pCO2

10

primary defect of metabolic alkalosis (pH is high)

HC03- is high

11

cause of metabolic alkalosis

HC03- is gained or H+ is loss

12

compensation of metabolic alkalosis

decrease ventilation to increase pCO2
