PH is 7.50 -- alkalosis Question to ask: Is HCO3 high (metabolic) or CO2 low (respiratory)?
Your HCO3 is on the low side, and CO2 on high side.... hmm, this is not metabolic alkalosis
if it was, the HCO3 would have to be high or in normal range on the high side, this would mean it has been compensated
Are you sure the numbers are correct?
now that I see range for HCO3 is 22-26(!)
)) it makes sense: HCO3 is in the upper corner, thus it's metabolic alkalosis(compensated).
