Abstract

Acid-base disorders are common in the critically ill. Arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis is frequently used to identify and manage acid-base disturbances. Using a systematic problem-solving approach to acid-base disturbances will facilitate the identification and assess the progression and severity of the metabolic and respiratory abnormality. The intent of this review is to examine acid-base physiology and regulation, provide a method to evaluate a patient's acid-base disorder, and provide therapeutic interventions.
