Module 8 Study Guide Instructions : Complete the following study guide 1. (3pts) How would you describe the condition of respiratory acidosis? This is a condition that occurs when the lungs can't remove enough of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by the body. Excess CO2 causes the pH of blood and other bodily fluids to decrease, making them too acidic. What would be the response within the respiratory system to this condition? The body's main response is to get rid of more carbonic acid and hold on to as much bicarbonate base in the kidneys as it can. What would be the response of the urinary system to this condition? increased urinary excretion of hydrogen ions and resorption of HCO 3 . 2. (2pts) What are the major buffer systems in the body?
