Clinical Information
  • A disorder characterized by abnormally high alkalinity (low hydrogen-ion concentration) of the blood and other body tissues.
  • A pathologic condition resulting from accumulation of base, or from loss of acid without comparable loss of base in the body fluids, and characterized by decrease in hydrogen ion concentration.
  • A pathological condition that removes acid or adds base to the body fluids.
  • A state due to excess loss of carbon dioxide from the body. (Dorland, 27th ed)
  • An abnormally high alkalinity (low hydrogen-ion concentration) of the blood and other body tissues.
  • Condition characterized by excessive loss of carbon dioxide from the body, often as a result of hyperventilation due to psychogenic or physical factors.
  • Pathological condition that removes acid or adds base to the body fluids.
