Abstract

Acid-base alterations have been studied in children with congestive heart failure. During the stage of cardiac decompensation the majority of the patients had respiratory acidosis. With control of heart failure, the abnormal values tended to normalize. These observations may have significant therapeutic importance in terms of the requirement for digitalis and the response to mercurial diuretics. Furthermore, they raise the possibility of the use of assisted ventilation in preventing death.
