Abstract

The nutrition support practitioner is confronted with numerous metabolic abnormalities in the daily care of patients. An understanding of the basic principles of acid-base balance, along with the ability to recognize common causes of the various disorders, enhances the clinician's ability to provide specialized nutrition support. The basic metabolic and respiratory disorders, along with common causes, are reviewed in this tutorial.
