acid base physiology1
Acid Base Physiology
  • Definition:

pH is defined as potential of H+ Ion concentration in body fluid. The amount of H+ ion concentration is so low in the body hence it is expressed as –ve logarithm to base of the H+ ion concentration in mEq/lit.

pH = log 1/ [H+ ]

= - log [H+ ]

the acid base balance
The Acid-Base Balance
  • Balance of H conc. In ECF .
  • To Achieve Homeostasis .
  • Balance Between :

The H Intake or Production

The H Removal

normal value
NORMAL VALUE
  • Arterial blood = 7.35 – 7.45

Can be explained as follows;

Normal value of H+ ion conc. is about 40nEq/lit.

40 nEq/lit = 0.00000004 Eq/lit.

Therefore pH = - log [0.00000004]

= 7.4

acid base imbalance
Acid – Base Imbalance
  • Acidosis = Decrease in arterial PH ( <7.35 )

Due to excess H+

  • Alkalosis = Elevation in Arterial PH ( >7.45)

Due to excess base .

pH and H+ ion concentration

Note : one point drop in pH results in a ten fold decrease in H+ ion conc.

scale of ph measurement
Scale of pH measurement
  • The pH scale is between 0 – 14.

Zero onwards below 7 is acidic.

After 7 upto 14 the solution is alkaline.

At 7 (neutral e.g. water) where the amount of H+ and Hydroxyl ion are equal at 23o

slide8
Examples of pH zero, one & two.

pH 0 = 1 lit. of HCl contains 1gm of H+ = 10o

pH 1 = 10 lit. of N/10 HCl contains 1gm of H+

Therefore 1 lit. will contain 1/10gm of H+ =10-1

pH 2 = 100 lit. of N/100 HCl contains 1gm of H+

Therefore 1 lit. will contain 1/100gm of H+ =10-2

And so on..

It will be noted that a solution of pH 2 does not have twice the H+ ion conc. at a pH of 4 rather it has 100 times H+ ion conc.

slide9
Since pH is inversely related to H+ ion conc. so a low pH corresponds to high H+ ion conc. (Acidic) and a high pH corresponds to low H+ ion conc. (Alkaline)

about h
About H+

H+ are derived from hydrogen atoms. Hydrogen atom has proton a positive electrical charge with a negative charge electron which is revolving around it. The hydrogen ion is formed when negative ion (electron) is lost and it contains only proton. The H+ is the smallest ionic particle, highly reactive with a very short life and unable to survive on its own.

slide12
A very tight control is needed for normal metabolic functions.

eg. Enzymatic activity, blood clotting and neuromuscular activity.

Hydrogen ions are the toxic end product of metabolism and they adversely affect all physical and biochemical cellular process in our body.

slide13
Acid
  • Molecules containing H atoms that can release (donate) H ions in solutions .
  • Example , HCL .
  • Strong acids :

- Completely dissociate : (HCL , H2SO4 )

  • Weak acid :

- Partially dissociate : ( H2CO3)

slide14
Base
  • An Ion that accept a H ion .
  • An example of a base is the Bicarbonate

( HCO3 ) .

buffers
Buffers
  • Substances that Neutralize acids or bases.
  • Chemical Reactions which Reduce the effect of adding acid or base to a solution PH .
how the body defends against fluctuations in ph
How the body defends against fluctuations in PH
  • Three Systems in the body :
  • Buffers in blood .
  • Respiration through the lungs .
  • Excretion by the kidney .
blood buffer
Blood Buffer
  • These buffer systems serve as a first line of defense against changes in the acid-base balance :

- HCO3(Regulated by Renal and Respiratory) .

- Protein

- Phosphate

- Hemoglobin

protein
Protein
  • Acidic and Basic Amino acid in plasma and cell protein act as buffers .
  • HB is an important buffer , can’t be regulated physiological .
phosphate intracellular buffers
Phosphate & Intracellular Buffers
  • Both Intra and Extra cellular phosphate act as a buffer . But its role is minor compared to HB or HCO3.
  • Intracellular buffers are needed because H doesn’t cross Plasma Membrane .
  • Intracellular PH is more acidic . (7.2)
respiratoy regulation of ph
Respiratoy Regulation of PH
  • Maintaining Normal PH by maintaining constant PCO2 .
  • Normal gas Exchange and ventilation .
  • Controlled by chemoreceptors .
  • PCO2 PH
renal regulation
Renal Regulation
  • Tubular Mechanisms of H+
  • Tubular Reabsorption of HCO3 .
slide26

Compensation

  • If underlying problem is metabolic :
  • Hyperventilation and Hypoventilation mechanisms
  • will help through Respiratory Compensation .
  • If the problem is Respiratory , Renal mechanisms , then Renal mechanisms will help through
  • Metabolic Compensation .
slide27

Acidosis

  • Principal effect of acidosis is Depression of the CNS through the decrease in synaptic transmission .
  • Generelized Weakness .
  • Deranged CNS is the greatest thread .
  • severe acidosis causes :
  • 1- Disorientation
  • 2- Coma
  • 3- Death
slide28

Alkalosis

  • Causes over excitability of the central and peripheral nervous systems .
  • Numbness
  • Lightheadedness
  • It can cause :
  • - nervousness .
  • - muscle spasms or tetany .
  • - convulsions
  • - looss of consciousness
  • - death .
slide30

-In the Metabolic(acidosis\alkalosis) the PCO2 is Constant .

- In the Respiratory(acidosis\alkalosis) the HCO3 is Constant .

slide31

- Hysterical

- Pneumonia

Loss of excessive alkali

Loss of Gastric acid = Vomiting

Excessive intake of alkali = antiacid

correction for respiratory alkalosis
Correction for Respiratory Alkalosis :
  • Correction :

HCO3 reabsorption by kidneys

blood HCO3 decreases PH to normal value .

  • The urine will be excreted with high HCO3.
  • In blood : PH= normal

HCO3 = Low , PCO2 = low

correction for respiratory acidosis
Correction for Respiratory acidosis :

Correction :

HCO3 reabsorption by the kidney

Blood HCO3 PH back to normal .

In blood : PH = normal

PCO2 = high , HCO3 = High

- The urine will be excreted with Low HCO3.

correction of metabolic alkalosis
Correction of Metabolic Alkalosis
  • Depress ventilation Blood PCO2

PH is back to normal .

In blood :

PH=~ Normal

HCO3 = high

PCO2 = high

correction for metabolic acidosis
Correction for Metabolic Acidosis
  • Correction :

- Stimulate ventilation ( Hyperventilation )

PCO2 PH Back to normal .

In blood :

PH =~ normal

HCO3 = Low

PCO2 = Low

slide36

The body response to acid-base IMBALANCE

is called

Compensation

If the Range is still outside the normal then ,

It is Partial

If the body is bruoght to the normal limits then,

It is Complete

slide46
A 44-year – old woman with a long history of indigestion begins to vomit at home. She becomes unwell after 4 days and is admitted to hospital because of marked muscle weakness. Her arterial blood gases are [H+] 28nmol/l,

PaCO2 6.5kPa,

[HCO3- 40mmol/l,

PaO210.3kPa,

plasma potassium 2.1 mmol/l.

Q. What is the likely diagnosis and what treatment is required?

slide47
Metabolic alkalosis is less common than metabolic acidosis. It is characterized by an increase in plasma bicarbonate, a fall in [H+], and a small compensatory rise in PaCO2.
slide48
2. A 32 – year-old man is admitted in a very ill state. He had been drinking with friends, but had not been seen for some hours. On admission he is barely conscious and breathing heavily.

His arterial blood gases are;

[H+] 98nmol/l,

PaCO2 2.7kPa,

[HCO3- 6mmol/l,

PaO2 13kPa.

Q. What is likely diagnosis, how should it be confirmed, and what treatment is required?

slide49
Metabolic acidosis is characterized by a reduction in plasma bicarbonate and a rise in [H+]. The PaCO2 is reduced secondarily by hyperventilation, which mitigates the rise in [H+].
slide50
3. a 56-year-old man, who has smoked heavily for many years, develops a worsening cough with purulent sputum, and is admitted to hospital because of difficulty in breathing. He is drowsy and cyanosed. His arterial blood gases are

[H+] 65nmol/l,

PaCO2 9.5kPa,

[HCO3- 28mmol/l,

PaO26.2kPa,

Q. What is likely diagnosis and what treatment is required?

slide51
Respiratory acidosis arises when effective alveolar ventilation fails to keep pace with the rate of CO2 production. As a result PaCO2, blood [HCO3-] and [H+] all rise.
slide52
4. a 13-year-school boy is brought the casualty department, having become acutely unwell in the headmaster’s office. He is alert and agitated, the respiratory rate is 35/min, and he complains of tingling in his hands. His arterial blood gases are;

[H+] 29nmol/l,

PaCO2 2.8kPa,

[HCO3- 22mmol/l,

PaO2 16kPa.

Q. What is the likely diagnosis and what treatment is required?

slide53
Respiratory alkalosis occurs when there is excessive loss of CO2 due to over-ventilation of the lungs. PaCO2 and [H+] fall. The low PaCO2 results in reduced renal Na+/H+ exchange.
