Factors Modifying Clinical Manifestations of Acid-Base Disorders

  • G. M. Woerlee
Part of the Developments in Critical Care Medicine and Anesthesiology book series (DCCA, volume 18)


The clinical manifestations of any given acid-base disorder are not only determined by the magnitude of the acid-base disturbance, but are also considerably modified by any coexisting diseases that a patient may have, or drugs that are ingested. Accordingly the physician should never just look at the laboratory measurements of anion-gap and blood gas values, but assess the clinical condition of the patient as a whole.
