Because increased sodium in the tubules increases hydrogen ion loss at the same time as potassium, diuretics may also induce a hypokalaemic metabolic alkalosis
. Metabolic alkalosis
is the most common acid-base disorder in hospitalised patients.
Moreover, concurrent administration oral SPS and non-absorbable antacids/phosphate binders containing magnesium hydroxide, aluminum carbonate or calcium carbonate may produce an unexpected metabolic alkalosis
. Hypomagnesaemia and systemic alkalosis are rare adverse events that have been reported with SPS therapy13-18.
On the other hand, metabolic alkalosis
has also been associated with increased mortality in dialysis in some settings (7,8).
The product, which is a generic version of Pharma Research Software Solution's potassium chloride for oral solution, 20 mEq, is indicated for the treatment and prophylaxis of hypokalemia with or without metabolic alkalosis
, in patients for whom dietary management with potassium-rich food or diuretic dose reduction is insufficient.
Bartter syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by gene mutations that involve hypokalaemia, hypochloraemia and metabolic alkalosis
along with raised serum renin, hyperaldosteronism and normal blood pressure.
This leads to volume expansion, severe hypertension, metabolic alkalosis
, and hypokalemia (1, 5, 6, 8).
Results from this study demonstrate that capture, transport, and restraint for noninvasive diagnostic tests resulted in a relative leukopenia, lymphopenia, monocytopenia, eosinopenia, increased H : L ratio, and unchanged venous blood pH, despite a mild respiratory acidosis and compensatory metabolic alkalosis
. In addition to providing clinical veterinarians a resource for interpretation of blood values after capture and brief transport, the respiratory and metabolic alternations noted provide insight into metabolic disturbances that may be anticipated in Dalmatian pelicans presenting for health assessment.
A venous gas demonstrated a metabolic alkalosis
with a pH of 7.57.
When interpreting the values of predialysis arterial blood gases, normal acid-base status was the most common with 43% (n=40), followed by metabolic alkalosis
with chronic hydrogen ion deficiency in 19,6% (n=18), with an average nPCR of 1,03 ([+ or -]0,19) and MIS of 5 (IQR 4 - 6).
The results--which are summarized in Table 1--showed the following: low-undetectable levels of testosterone, DHEA-S, androstenedione, 17-OH-progesterone, estradiol and active renin; low-normal 24h urinary cortisol and serum aldosterone; high ACTH, progesterone, LH and FSH concentrations; metabolic alkalosis
with severe hypokalemia.
Arterial blood gas on room air showed respiratory alkalosis with metabolic alkalosis
, normal lactate, and normal alveolar-arterial gradient, adjusted for age.
Instead, it presents with muscle wasting, weakness, and syndrome of apparent mineralocorticoid excess (SAME), manifesting as resistant hypertension and hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis
. In SCLCs with dual SIADH and EAS, the opposing effects of cortisol and ADH on renal sodium excretion can make diagnosis even more challenging.
