    i shall first explain simple disorders first. normal ph is 7.38- 7.42. less ph acidosis, more ph alkalosis.
    metabolic acidosis, ph is less, due to inc hydrogen ion and or dec bicarb.
    exactly opp for metab alkalosis

    resp acidosis less ph, due to inc co2
    resp alkalosis, opposite.

    hw for u. pl post normal values for all of us. ill explain more in the next post.
