there's only one i can think of that i use...probably won't work for others since i made it up my own little head.
so, you look at your ph & if it's < 7.35, it's acidosis. whenever i hear the word acidosis in my mind, i hear it as a little tiny high-pitched girl voice..."acidosis
." i think to myself, teeny tiny number (< 7.35), teeny tiny word..."acidosis
." and i picture a sweet little girl, in a pretty pink dressed, sitting in the waiting room of the hospital, breathing very slowly & calmly (hypoventilating). and when you ask her what's wrong, she looks up at you & whispers, "acidosis
alkalosis is when the ph is >7.35. it's a big, honkin' number. i picture a big, mean alkalosis monster. grrr! alkalosis
and he's angry & huffing & puffing (hyperventilating).
so, yeah, that's what i do
