Unformatted text preview: Notes) A) is respiratory acidosis B) would cause decreased stimulation of peripheral chemoreceptors C) would cause increased stimulation of peripheral chemoreceptors D) causes the kidneys to excrete a more alkaline urine E) A and C Respiratory acidosis is caused by increased CO 2 (any acidosis NOT due to CO 2 is metabolic acidosis - which is what is described in the question). Remember from Respiratory Lectures, that increased H + not due to CO 2 will stimulate the peripheral chemoreceptors. Urine would be more acidic - person is in acidosis, so want to get rid of acid (get rid of more H + in the urine, so the urine would be more acidic, not more alkaline). Answer is C....
