Description

How would you classify the patient’s acid-base disturbance and explain why?

Given the case study, what are the possible factors causing this acid-base disturbance?  Explain the pathophysiology created by these factors.

How would renal and respiratory systems try to compensate for this acid-base disturbance?

What pharmacologic intervention is commonly used to correct this acid-base disturbance? Describe the pharmacological actions.

A 22-year-old woman reports being “sick with the flu” for the past 8 days. She is vomiting

several times every day, having difficulty keeping liquids or food down, and has been using

severely dehydrated. After fainting at home, she was taken to a local hospital. An arterial blood

gas sample was drawn and then an IV was placed to help rehydrate her. The arterial blood gas

revealed the following:
