Lab Case 98 – Interpretation

Expected HCO3 for acute compensated respiratory alkalosis would be 21, actual HCO3 is 18.6 which suggests an additional metabolic acidosis. The low CO2 suggests this an acute respiratory disorder, with a chronic respiratory alkalosis you would expect a CO2 closer to normal with a near normal pH. It is unlikely a patient would have a very rapid respiratory rate for a prolonged period.
