Bartter syndrome and hypothyroidism masquerading cystinosis in a 3-year-old girl: rare ...
BMJ Case Reports; Das G, Nanda PM et. al.

Jul 28th, 2021 - Cystinosis is a multisystem disorder with varied presentations secondary to deposition of cystine crystals in different organ systems. Children with cystinosis typically present with renal tubular acidosis and failure to thrive. We report a 3-year...

Effect of induced acute metabolic alkalosis on the V̇E/V̇CO2 response to exercise in he...
Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology; Broadman J, Jensen D

Jul 14th, 2021 - We tested the hypothesis that increasing the respiratory control systems' arterial PCO2 equilibrium point via induced acute metabolic alkalosis by ingestion of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3, 0.3 g/kg) would decrease the ventilatory equivalent for CO2...

Acid base disorders in patients with COVID-19.
International Urology and Nephrology; Alfano G, Fontana F et. al.

Jun 12th, 2021 - Acid-base derangement has been poorly described in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Considering the high prevalence of pneumonia and kidneys injury in COVID-19, frequent acid-base alterations are expected in patients admitted wit...

Alterations in arterial CO2 rather than pH affect the kinetics of neurovascular couplin...
The Journal of Physiology; Caldwell HG, Howe CA et. al.

Jun 10th, 2021 - We investigated the influence of arterial P C O 2 ( P aC O 2 ) with and without acute experimental metabolic alkalosis on neurovascular coupling (NVC). We assessed stepwise iso-oxic alterations in P aC O 2 prior to and following intravenous NaHCO3...

Segmental maternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 7q in a patient with congenital chl...
Journal of Clinical Laboratory Analysis; Lyu J, Huang Z et. al.

Jun 5th, 2021 - The main symptoms of congenital chloride diarrhea (CCD) main symptoms are watery diarrhea, hypochloremia, and hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis. Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) is a heterogeneous imprinting disorder characterized by severe intrauterin...

AT1R Blockade and Periodic Breathing During Sleep in Hypoxia

May 9th, 2019 - Objective: To determine the effects of angiotensin-II, type-I receptor (AT1R) blockade on the relationship between ventilatory control and sleep disordered breathing (SDB) following a night of hypoxic sleep in healthy humans. Justification: Ventil...

Cerebrospinal Acid-base in Pregnant and Non-pregnant Fertile Women

Apr 17th, 2018 - The reduction in plasma PCO2 correlates with gestational age and was shown to be associated to plasma progesterone concentrations. We hypothesize that pregnancy-related haemodilution, inducing a reduction in CSF Strong Ion Difference (SID), might ...

The Influence of Cerebral Blood Flow and PETCO2 on Neuromuscular Function During Passive Heat Stress

Jan 29th, 2018 - Increased core temperature (hyperthermia) has been associated with impaired neuromuscular performance; however, the mechanisms associated with these performance decrements and their potential synergies remain unclear. While the majority of researc...

Benefits of Hemodialysis With Citrate (ABC-treat) Study

Oct 24th, 2017 - Primary objective: to analyze the effect of citrate dialysate on acid base balance decreasing chronic metabolic acidosis and avoiding / reducing post-dialytic alkalosis. Secondary objectives: Evaluate the effect of dialysate on the variation of ca...

Weaning From Mechanical Ventilation Using Permissive Hypercarbia

Oct 20th, 2017 - The primary objective of this research is to assess the utility of permissive hypercarbia (PH) in the weaning of patients with risk factors for difficult weaning from mechanical ventilation. This pilot study seeks to validate the concept that PH w...
