Physiological Consequences of Acid-Base Disorders

Conference paper

Abstract

The physiological consequences of acid-base disorders constitute a difficult topic for many reasons. The consequences of acid-base disorders that I will discuss are derived from in vitro, animal, and clinical work reviewed by experts in acid-base disorders [1, 2, 3, 4]. Unfortunately these reviewers either ignore or downplay the acid-base approach of Peter Stewart [5].
