Acidosis

Acidosis is an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue (i.e. an increased hydrogen ion concentration). If not further qualified, it usually refers to acidity of the blood plasma. Acidosis is said to occur when arterial pH falls below 7.35 (except in the fetus - see below), while its counterpart (alkalosis) occurs at a pH over 7.45. Ar...

acidosis

<biochemistry> A metabolic condition, characterised by an increase in hydrogen ion concentration, that occurs when the body is no longer able to buffer free hydrogen ions in the blood, resluting from either the accumulation of acid or depletion of the alkaline reserve (bicarbonate) in the blood and body tissues. This usually causes the pH of ...

Acidosis

A condition in which the blood is more acidic than normal. This may be due to a build up of carbon dioxide as a result of respiratory failure, or of acid substances, e.g. hyperglycaemia in diabetes mellitus (diabetic ketoacidosis)

Acidosis

Acidosis is a condition in which the body fluids tend to have a higher acid content than normal. The body has a variety of ways to compensate for mild acidosis, but prolonged acidosis can produce weakness, headache, and heavy or rapid breathing. Severe acidosis may lead to acidemia (a build-up of acids in the blood) which can result in coma and dea...

Acidosis

Acidosis: Too much acid in the body, a distinctly abnormal condition resulting from the accumulation of acid or from the depletion of alkaline reserves.
