As the traditional interpretation might be clinically misleading, an alternative approach described by Stewart may allow one to quantify the individual components of acid-base abnormalities and provide an insight into their pathogenesis. The aim of our study was to compare the traditional and Stewart approaches in the analysis of acid-base disturbance. METHODS We analyzed arterial blood… CONTINUE READING
