Quem dá o que tem, a mais não é obrigado

Desde pequena que me foi incutido este princípio.
Ora, então, tomem lá (e não se queixem):


Acid-base disorders are extremely common in clinical medicine and can be seen in numerous disease states. The lungs and kidneys help maintain acid-base equilibrium (in the lungs via CO2, in the kidneys via bicarbonate [HCO3];). The body never overcorrects for a single acid-base disorder. When evaluating acid-base status, begin by looking at the serum pH to decide if acidosis or alkalosis is present (pH < 7.4 indicates acidosis; pH > 7.4 indicates alkalosis). Then look at the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (Pco2) and serum HCO3 to see which one (or both) is consistent with the pH, to determine if the primary disorder is respiratory or metabolic. Note that a normal pH does not exclude an acid-base disorder; for instance, with a coexisting metabolic acidosis and metabolic alkalosis, the pH may be normal
