16.Emesis causes a.respiratory acidosis.b.respiratory alkalosis.c.metabolic acidosis.d.metabolic alkalosis.ANS: DEmesis causes metabolic alkalosis as the stomach is a major reservoir for acids. Emesis causes a metabolic acid-base imbalance as it is not related to the respiratory system. Emesis involves loss of gastric acid and fluid and causes an alkalotic disruption. REF: Pg. 546 17.Diarrhea causes REF: Pg. 543 18.The ________ system compensates for metabolic acidosis and alkalosis.

Pneumonia, chest muscle weakness, and pulmonary edema cause carbonic acid to accumulate in the blood and result in respiratory acidosis. REF: Pg. 546 21.If an individual has a fully compensated metabolic acidosis, the blood pH is REF: Pg. 544
