Effect of acetate upon arterial gases

Journal of Dialysis

Following infusion of sodium acetate, a significant fall in arterial oxygen tension (PO2) was observed (p less than 0.001). A rise in PCO2 or bicarbonate was also statistically significant. pH was however remained unchanged. Though a rise in PCO2, bicarbonate, pH was observed following infusion of sodium bicarbonate, no significant fall in PO2 was observed. These results suggest a role of acetate ion for the fall of arterial oxygen tension; the hemodialysis-induced hypoxemia.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
