The effects of respiratory alkalosis and acidosis on net bicarbonate flux along the rat loop of Henle in vivo.


We have studied the effects of acute respiratory alkalosis (ARALK, hyperventilation) and acidosis (ARA, 8% CO2), chronic respiratory acidosis (CRA; 10% CO2 for 7-10 days), and subsequent recovery from CRA breathing air on loop of Henle (LOH) net bicarbonate flux ([Formula: see text]) by in vivo tubule microperfusion in anesthetized rats. In ARALK blood, pH… (More)
