Substance that release H+ in solution (body fluids).
Hydroxyl ion (OH-) or bicarbonate ion (HCO3-) substance that binds to H+.
Completely dissociates in solution, releasing all of its hydrogen ions and thus lowering solution pH level.
Does not release all of it's hydrogen ions in a solution.
Strong tendency to bind H+ and having a lesser effect on solution pH.
Bind less of H+, having lesser effect on solution pH.
40-45 mm Hg
In Order to Maintain Homeostasis..
Utilize both chemical and physiological buffering systems.
Formula for Acid Base Balance
pH falls below 7.35.
pH rise over 7.45.
Hypoventilation, decrease in blood that include: airway obstruction, depression of the respiratory center in the brain stem, lung disease, and drug overdose. Secretion of H+ into urine causes an increase in plasma pH.
