Respiratory acidosis in the elderly

Respiratory acidosis (acerbic acid) is often caused by CO2 retention. The compensatory effect of kidney is not very significant in the acute phase. The bicarbonate buffer system does not work. So the acidosis is progresses rapidly and can reach the severity within * 10 minutes. * CO2 is easy to enter cells, resulting in intracellular acidosis. If not corrected in time, the mortality is very high. Its main feature is the increase of plasma PaCO2 and the compensatory increase of HCO3 - level in chronic phase.
