In studying the resources and writing your text consider the issues raised by the following questions: 1. What is homeostasis? 2. What is acidosis? 3. What is a buffer and how does it work? 4. What equilibrium reactions are involved in the carbonic acid/bicarbonate buffer system? 5. What are the metabolic and physiological processes that increase the concentration of protons and carbon dioxide in the blood during exercise? 6. How does the carbonic acid/bicarbonate buffer system respond to the stress? 7. What other pathways does the body use to remove excess protons, carbon dioxide or bicarbonate from the blood, and what effect do each of these pathways have on the pH of the blood? Write a paragraph of the required length on how the bicarbonate system maintains homeostasis in the blood system. In your paragraph be sure to address the issues in the Guiding Questions. Remember that you are writing a paragraph, not just answering a list of questions, so you should include a topic sentence and a summary statement.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
