You can remember which one is the right eye (OD), because you can make the D into an R - You just have to draw to stick legs on the bottom of the D. Write it down on paper, you'll see what I mean (it's hard to show you when all I can do is type)Last edit by mopnglo42 on Apr 21, '06

ph > PCO2 < Alkalosis
ph < PCO2 > Acidosis
ph> HCO3 > Alkalosis

Hope this helps to explain . Also if it is a repiratory problem co2 levels are going to be off and if it is a metabolic problem you HCO3 levels are going to be off.

Definitely helps--I'm making index cards on some of these to help me prepare for NCLEX.
