ANSWERS
 
Practice Problem 2
 
ABG's:  pH 7.31   PCO2 55 mm Hg   HCO3- 35 mEq/L
 
pH ² low = acidosis
 
PCO2 ² high = respiratory acidosis
 
HCO3 - high = renal compensation
 
 
 
 
Practice Problem 3
 
ABG's:  pH 7.31   PCO2 35 mm Hg   HCO3- 20 mEq/L
 
pH ² low = acidosis
 
PCO2 ² normal; no compensation
 
HCO3 - low = metabolic acidosis 
 
 
 
Practice Problem 4
 
ABG's:  pH 7.31   PCO2 25 mm Hg   HCO3- 20 mEq/L
 
pH ² low = acidosis
 
PCO2 ² low = respiratory compensation
 
HCO3 - low = metabolic acidosis 
 
 
 
Practice Problem 5
 
ABG's:  pH 7.48   PCO2 25 mm Hg   HCO3- 28 mEq/L
 
pH ² high = alkalosis
 
PCO2 ² low = respiratory alkalosis
 
HCO3 - normal; no compensation
 
 
 
Practice Problem 6
 
ABG's:  pH 7.48   PCO2 25 mm Hg   HCO3- 20 mEq/L
