    Podcast 3 – Laryngoscope as a Murder Weapon (LAMW) Series – Ventilatory Kills – Intubating the patient with Severe Metabolic Acidosis. EMCrit Blog.[] Metabolic acidosis itself most often causes rapid breathing. Acting confused or very tired may also occur. Severe metabolic acidosis can lead to shock or death.[] You are here: Home / EMCrit-RACC / Podcast 3 – Laryngoscope as a Murder Weapon (LAMW) Series – Ventilatory Kills – Intubating the patient with Severe Metabolic Acidosis May[]

  • Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome

    74.2mmol/L, Potassium 6.3mmol/L, Sodium 137mmol/L) and severe metabolic acidosis (pH 6.99, HC03 1.7mmol/L).[] metabolic acidosis and a history of stroke and alcohol liver disease.[] Other predisposing factors include severe metabolic acidosis, older age, pediatric patients, as well as the presence of other nerves disease maybe a preexisting seizure disorder[]

  • Metabolic Acidosis

    We report two parturient women with severe metabolic acidosis which was considerably reduced very soon after the delivery and how our timely delivery resulted in the birth[] Podcast 3 – Laryngoscope as a Murder Weapon (LAMW) Series – Ventilatory Kills – Intubating the patient with Severe Metabolic Acidosis. EMCrit Blog.[] The severity of metabolic acidosis was defined according to base excess levels as mild or moderate.[]

  • Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

    Severe metabolic acidosis was also seen in all cases. Some cases also displayed concomitant respiratory acidosis, hypothermia, hypoxia and/or hemorrhage.[] Severe metabolic acidosis in the setting of alcoholism raises diagnostic and therapeutic problems [Levinsky 1994].[] In the present case, a 26-year-old patient was admitted for a coma associated with severe metabolic acidosis.[]

  • Ethylene Glycol Poisoning

    A young man presented to the emergency department with mental status changes, severe metabolic acidosis, and oliguria. Acute ethylene glycol intoxication was diagnosed.[] The metabolites of ethylene glycol cause severe metabolic acidosis and central nervous system, pulmonary, and renal damage.[] The case demonstrates the typical complications associated with this type of poisoning, in particular severe metabolic acidosis, acute renal failure and a deep comatose state[]

  • Methanol Poisoning

    Acute methanol poisoning produces severe metabolic acidosis and serious neurologic sequelae.[] She presented to a hospital in New Zealand with severe metabolic acidosis and a highly toxic methanol level at 17 mmol/L.[] We report a case of fatal methanol poisoning (1.9 g/L on admission) suspected due to the combined presence of coma and severe metabolic acidosis with normokalaemia.[]

  • 5-Oxoprolinuria

    Clinically affected patients present with severe metabolic acidosis, 5-oxoprolinuria, increased rate of hemolysis and defective function of the central nervous system.[] In the severe systemic form, chronic metabolic acidosis must be managed. Long-term prognosis is guarded.[] In order to treat metabolic acidosis, severely affected patients are given large amounts of bicarbonate and antioxidants such as vitamin E and vitamin C.[]

  • Proximal Renal Tubular Acidosis

    Severe metabolic acidosis and hypokalaemia were linked to an abnormally low renal threshold for bicarbonate reabsorption (8 mmol/l).[] Hypopotassemia and severe metabolic acidosis were found on biochemical examination.[] Severe metabolic acidosis was caused by the impairment of bicarbonate reabsorption in the proximal tubules and alkali therapy improved her acidaemia.[]

  • Salicylate Poisoning

    , those who suffered seizures, coma or severe metabolic acidosis and in those with chronic toxicity.[] Persistently high salicylate concentrations unresponsive to urinary alkalinisation Severe metabolic acidosis (pH below 7.2) Patients aged under 10 years or over 70 years[] acidosis Hypoglycaemia (can be hyperglycaemia) Hypocalcaemia Pyrexia CNS toxicity: confusion, hallucinations, seizures, coma, cerebral oedema Pulmonary oedema Prolonged PT[]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    […] ketonuria and severe metabolic acidosis (pH 7.08).[] Though the symptoms were rapidly relieved after initiation of treatment, severe hyperglycemia (575 mg/dL), severe metabolic acidosis (pH 6.9), and ketonuria developed at four[] Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a common cause of severe metabolic acidosis, remains a life-threatening condition due to complications of both the disease and its treatment.[]
