For practical purposes, all acid-base disturbances are referred to as "acidosis or alkalosis", without making any distinction with regard to the terms "acidemia and alkalemia".
The latter could induce intracellular alkalemia and associated increased glycolysis and intracellular uptake of phosphorus for ATP production [5].
Due to a certain delayed onset of several hours of renal compensation, in contrast to the other compensatory mechanisms, a rebound with overshooting alkalemia is more likely in respiratory than in metabolic acidosis.
Radiographs were unremarkable and alkalemia due to primary respiratory alkalosis was apparent in the arterial blood gases analysis results (Table 1).
In human, canine, and feline medicine, acidemia is defined as a blood pH below 7.35, whereas a pH above 7.45 is considered alkalemia. In acid-base disorders, both respiratory and metabolic components may contribute to acidosis and alkalosis, and these components may also have a role in the compensation of these disorders.
