kalemia n acid

The twisted mathematical
relationship between decreased plas
ma pH and increased plasma [K+] will be
discussed in Anesthesiology a
nd in Fluid Balance lectures.
================================

2. excess [K+] entering cells displaces H+ from them.

1. ((renal compensation for)) hyperkalemia causes metabolic acidosis. K+ entering principle cells gets spat out into filtrate, thusly inhibiting α-intercalated cells.

3. metabolic ((titration)) acidosis likewise promotes hyperkalemia by displacing K+ in cells.

wrat about respiratory acidois eh? bicarb-losing metabolic acidosis?
what happens to [K+] in alkaline situations?
