Metabolic/Respiratory Acidosis and Alkalosis

Acidosis and Alkalosis Made Easy

Hey everyone,

It has been awhile since I posted—I’ve been extremely busy putting together new content for NPTE preparation and guiding my current course of the Mastermind Study Group through their material.  I have always had a love for teaching, and it’s so awesome that I have this outlet to really capitalize on those skills.

One of my most recent projects is a quick how-to video on how to distinguish between Acidosis and Alkalosis with a standard arterial blood gas analysis.  This can be tedious for some students to really analyze, and I hope that I can make this portion of the exam a little bit easier.

I’m attaching the file with the table and brief instructions.  I’ve also created a brief Youtube video to help explain things further.  Please check them out and let me know what you think.

As I’ve said before, I thrive on honest feedback, and I would appreciate yours.  If anything I have on this website is useful to you, please consider using the social media sharing buttons to let your friends and classmates know about this resource.  This site has been growing astronomically in the last 6 months, and I want to help as many people as I can as they prepare for the July 2014 NPTE.

If there’s anything that you would like to me to explain or create an instructional video about, please contact me!
