I think this is confusing and many people I know are reading serum C02 from labs as acidic rather than alkaline. Apparently C02 dissolved in blood serum is the same as HC03. Does everyone agree. Also why don't they just say so in the lab results? How does this reading C02 blood coorespond with Anion Gap? What is the significance of anion gap, especially in cardio?
