154 Possible Causes for Bicarbonate Decreased, Metabolic Encephalopathy

  • Acidosis

    Labs: General Arterial Blood Gas Arterial pH decreased Serum bicarbonate decreased PaCO2 decreased PaCO2 drops 1.2 mmHg per 1 meq/L bicarbonate fall Calculated PaCO2 1.5 x[] A persistent decrease in the rate of renal bicarbonate reabsorption that maintains the decreased plasma bicarbonate level. c.[] Decreased in increased Anion Gap Metabolic Acidosis Bicarbonate decrease matches Anion Gap increase Urinalysis with Urine pH Urine pH 6: Suggests Renal cause Urine pH Urine[]

  • Chronic Respiratory Acidosis

    decreases by 5 units for every 10 units of decrease in pCO 2 from the baseline of 40 mm Hg.[] This can be seen in the following settings: Acute intoxication with narcotics or other sedative medications Severe metabolic encephalopathy Obesity hypoventilation Severe[] -normal PaCO 2 ) 0.35 x( 60-40) 0.35x20 7 meq/l Expected bicarbonate decrease for acute CO 2 retention (Buffering) is Hyperventilation: The expected fall in bicarb for acute[]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    This decline in U-B PCO2 with acute hyperventilation could not be attributed to changes in urine flow, phosphate, or bicarbonate excretion, suggesting, therefore, a decrease[] […] res'pir-ă-tōr-ē al'kă-lō'sis ) Alkalosis resulting from an abnormal loss of CO 2 produced by hyperventilation, either active or passive, with concomitant reduction in arterial bicarbonate[] […] concentration. alkalosis a pathological condition resulting from accumulation of base, or from loss of acid without comparable loss of base in the body fluids, and characterized by decrease[]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    It is the result of an increase in bicarbonate production, a decrease in bicarbonate excretion, or a loss of hydrogen ions.[] We describe a patient with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome with persistent encephalopathy, severe metabolic alkalosis (highest bicarbonate 81 mEq/L), hypernatremia (sodium 157[] The hypothesis of this study was that elevated plasma bicarbonate levels decrease respiratory drive and minute ventilation.[]

  • Hyponatremia

    15% to 20%, hyperchloremic acidosis, decreased serum bicarbonate level, potassium abnormalities (type dependent) Correct acidosis, sodium bicarbonate Salt-wasting nephropathies[] Arieff AI et al . (1995) Age, gender, and vasopressin affect survival and brain adaptation in rats with metabolic encephalopathy . Am J Physiol 268 : R1143–R1152 16.[] Bryan Young, Metabolic Encephalopathies, Disorders of Consciousness, 10.1016/S0072-9752(07)01707-1, (115-166), (2008).[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Neutralization of dietary acid with sodium bicarbonate decreases kidney injury and slows kidney function decline, but sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) has sodium; so, doctors[] encephalopathy).[] While this is not an all-inclusive list, some of the common conditions are: Anemia Hypertension Electrolyte imbalance, hyperparathyroidism Metabolic acidosis and alkalosis[]

  • Alkalosis

    The decreased bicarbonate concentration realigns the Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation for the bicarbonate buffer and thus largely corrects the ECF pH.[] This can be seen in the following settings: Acute intoxication with narcotics or other sedative medications Severe metabolic encephalopathy Obesity hypoventilation Severe[] […] acidosis) DT, anxiety, pain DKA and aspirin OD Environmental HYPERthermia (Heat tetany) Drugs Aspirin OD Progesterone Liver failure (encephalopathy) with hyperammonaemia[]

  • Acute Renal Failure

  • Renal Tubular Acidosis

    […] resorption Decrease in aldosterone secretion or activity Plasma bicarbonate (mEq/L or mmol/L) Frequently 15, occasionally 10 Usually 12–20 Usually 17 Plasma potassium Usually[] A decrease in proximal tubular bicarbonate resorptive capacity results in proximal (type 2) RTA.[] […] low but tends to normalize with alkalinization Usually low and decreased further by alkalinization High Urine pH 5.5 7 if plasma bicarbonate is normal 5.5 if plasma bicarbonate[]

  • Acute Pancreatitis

    Ethanol increases the protein content of pancreatic juice and decreases bicarbonate levels and trypsin inhibitor concentrations.[] : Hyperglycemia, Hypocalcemia, Encephalopathy, Sudden blindness (Purtscher’s retinopathy) CNS: Psychosis, Fat emboli Timeline of complications in Acute Pancreatitis Period[] […] necrosis with erosion into major blood vessels, Portal vein thrombosis (Variceal hemorrhages) Renal: Oliguria, Azotemia, Renal artery/vein thrombosis, Acute Tubular Necrosis Metabolic[]
