The breakdown of fats and sugars for energy generates CO2, which, when dissolved in blood, forms carbonic acid (see Box on facing page). Metabolism of protein produces hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid and other so-called metabolic acids. H+ ions must, therefore, be removed to maintain normal blood pH. What removes H+ ions from our bodies? Respiratory mechanisms Our lungs are responsible for removing CO2. Paco2, the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in our blood, is determined by alveolar ventilation.
G. reduced urine production) – but this is not always straightforward. By providing a ‘global marker’ of O2 delivery to tissues, lactate levels can be very helpful in detecting the presence of shock and in monitoring response to treatment. 40 Disorders of Acid–Base Balance Normal Tissue Tissue Circulatory volume Arterial system Tissue Heart Hypoxia Lactate Causes of hypoxia • impaired ventilation • impaired oxygenation • anaemia Hypoperfusion – global Lactate Causes of global hypoperfusion • cardiogenic shock • distributive shock Increased tissue demand Lactate Causes of increased tissue demand • extreme exercise • seizure activity • sepsis • burns Hypoperfusion – focal Lactate Causes of focal hypoperfusion • infarction • tourniquet • trauma • volvulus Impaired metabolism Lactate Causes of impaired tissue metabolism • genetic • cyanide poisoning • ethanol toxicity Figure 17 Lactic acidosis.
H+ concentration can be expressed directly in nanomoles per litre (nmol/L) or as pH (see facing page). Solutions with high H+ (low pH) are acidic and those with low H+ (high pH) are alkaline. The point at which a substance changes from alkali to acid is the neutral point (pH = 7, H+ = 100 nmol/L). An acid is a substance that releases H+ when it is dissolved in solution. e. lower the pH). A base is a substance that accepts H+ when dissolved in solution. e. raise the pH). A buffer is a substance that can either accept or release H+ depending on the surrounding H+ concentration.
