fixed (nonvolatile) acid accumulation in the blood or an excessive loss of HCO3 from the body
Primary objectives for turning include all of the following except to:
A,REF: 928 A. prevent postural hypotension
What factors contribute to a decrease in hemoglobin's (Hb) affinity for O2

ventilation and perfusion must be in balance
How much faster does Carbon dioxide diffuse across the alveolar-capillary membrane than does oxygen and why
20 times faster, because of its much higher solubility in plasma

What is Fick Formula for calculating Cardiac Output (both Qt and C.O.)
Qt = VO2 / [C (a-v) O2 x 10]
Which of the following would you expect to find with “oxygen debt”?
B) I and II I. Accentuated in diseases such as sepsis. II. Oxygen demand exceeds oxygen delivery.
What role does the Bohr effect play in oxygen transport?
C) Enhances oxygen delivery to tissues and oxygen pickup at lungs.
Key considerations in initial and ongoing patient assessment for chest physical therapy include which of the following? I. posture and muscle tone II. breathing pattern and ability to cough III. sputum production IV. cardiovascular stability
C. I, II, III, and IV REF: 925 I. posture and muscle tone II. breathing pattern and ability to cough III. sputum production IV. cardiovascular stability
compare CO affinity to Hb compared to O2
CO is more than 200 times greater than it is for oxygen. Even extremely low concentrations of CO represent a loss in carrying capacity. CO with Hb shifts the HbO2 curve to the left furhter impeding oxygen delivery.
