Greater than 7.45

7

Which abnormal lab value represents a respiratory imbalance?

Abnormal PaCO2

8

Which abnormal lab value represents a metabolic imbalance?

Abnormal HCO3 levels

9

What does compensation refer to?

pH returning to normal

10

What are the 2 types of compensation?

Complete and partial

11

What is partial compensation?

Partial compensation is where the pH value is still out of range but is improving.

12

What is complete compensation?

Complete compensation is where the pH returns to normal ranges.
