Strong Ion Difference – The quantitative approach to acid-base chemistry is also known as the physicochemical method or the Stewart approach
Critical Care Compendium CCC
The LITFL Critical Care Compendium is a comprehensive collection of pages concisely covering the core topics and controversies of critical care.
Pyroglutamic acidosis is a rare cause of high anion gap metabolic acidosis (HAGMA). When glutathione levels are low, the activity of γ-glutamyl cyclotransferase is increased, resulting in pyroglutamic acid accumulation in glutathione-depleted states
D-Lactic acidosis aka D-lactic encephalopathy. Rare cause of high anion gap metabolic acidosis (HAGMA), typically occurs in patients short bowel syndrome or following jejuno-ileal bypass surgery
The degree of acid-base abnormality during cardiac arrest and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is dependent on a number of variables
Arterial Blood Gas in Hypothermia. The solubility of oxygen and carbon dioxide is increased at low temperatures.
Bimanual laryngoscopy using external laryngeal manipulation (ELM) is the single most practical and effective airway management technique for facilitating intubation during direct laryngoscopy.
