Potassium (K+)

Chloride (Cl–)
115 mEq/L H
Arterial blood gases (ABGs)
pH- 7.30; Pco2-40; Po2-70; HCO3-20
METABOLIC ACIDOSIS with respiratory compensation, High anion gap
Normal values
Sodium (Na+)
136-146 mEq/L
Potassium (K+)
3.5-5.1 mEq/L
Chloride (Cl–)
98-106 mEq/L

Lactic Acid level, serum and urine ketone levelsDescribe the molecular mechanism of the development of ketoacidosis. (p. 744) *Pt’s who develop DKA do so bc bicarbonate buffering does not occur, which begins the development of metabolic acidosis
pH 7.30 = acid
CO2 40 = Normal
O2 70 = Low
HCO3 20 = acid
