…because we know how much you love to teach them Tom.

Actually, I forgot to ask you today about the answers I’d come up with. So I thought I’d post on here so the others could learn from my mistakes!

What I got:

Acute Type I - pH normal, PaO2 low, PaCO2 normal, HCO3 normal

Acute Type II - pH low, PaO2 low, PaCO2 high, HCO3 normal

Chronic (compensated) Type II - pH normal, PaO2 low, PaCO2 high, HCO3 high

Acute on Chronic (decompensated) Type II - pH low, PaO2 low, PaCO2 very high (compared to ‘normal’ hypercapnia) and high HCO3

Hi guys.  I’m sitting here waiting for you to turn up to our regular 3pm session on a Wednesday afternoon, but so far no dice.

Have you cancelled it without me noticing?

Steve found a video and commented in another post.  Of course he meant to put it up here as a new post, so I’m doing that for him.  I can even embed the video here…..

See!  Nice.
