PhysioEx 10: Acid/Base Balance During normal breathing, P CO2 and pH doesn’t change Hyperventiliation: pH increases and P CO2 decreases; tidal volume increase If hyperventilate and go back to normal breathing, trace flat lines for a few seconds Rebreathing: P CO2 increases and pH decreases; tidal volume increases As P CO2 decreases and blood pH increases, H + in urine decreases and HCO 3 - increases o resembles hyperventilation- causes alkalosis As P CO2 increases and blood pH decreases, H
