I like to have little things that help me remember certain things that won't stick in my head and Acidosis and Alkalosis is one of them!!LOL Does anyone have a little way that helped them remember the CO2's HCO3 and PH and so on? Like to hear from ya!
Hi when I was a student, the easiest explanation that clicked for me was the ''it's all in the family'' premise....ABG's consisting of a first and last name and grouping them. Here's a link, kinda long page but if you skim thru towards the middle the way then you classify it there, explained in layman's terms....Which is btw learned from the idea of L.G. Vonfrolio, one who each ICU or ER nurse is familiar of...
Hope this helps....
