Summary Introduction

To review:

The given blank space in the statement, “The PCO2/HCO3/pH nomogram verified that the solo cause of the elevated pH was due to __________.”

Introduction:

The PCO2/HCO3/pH nomogram determines the acid–base status of the blood. It is the simplest way to know the pH (potential of hydrogen) of the blood. There are many cases in which the clinical disturbances can be easily understood by determining the change in the blood pH and the levels of CO2 (carbon dioxide).

Please refer to Clinical Application Case-1 for further information.

Explanation

The PCO2/HCO3-/pH nomogram helps to determine the exact reason behind the elevated level of the pH. When the PCO2 level lowers down, the HCO3- (bicarbonate ions) amount decreases thus decreasing the acidity of the blood. The acidity of the blood decreases and the pH rises...
