Hyponatremia: Many pulmonary illnesses may cause a low sodium level, via induction of inappropriate SIADH. But respiratory alkalosis, by itself, should not lower the sodium level below the normal range. Often, people with respiratory alkalosis may have a lower serum chloride level, to balance for additional bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) ions. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Anxiety can be treated with both medicaiton and nonmedication strategies. Pain is usually treated with medication.

Abg result: mixed metabolic acidosis and respiratory alkalosis with more than adequate oxygenation. What's the meaning of this? Thank you.
Acid-base disorder: To give a clear answer we need to have the actual values for the ph, pco2, and the tco2 (usually called bicarbonate). A mixed disorder needs to be broken into the primary disorder and then if other disorders are present, are they primary or secondary. Normal oxygenation not relevant to this problem. Could be anxiety or medication for the resp alkalosis with a secondary hyperchloremic "acidosis". ...Read more
Yes: Actually, since you're at high altitude the low pressures cause you to breathe faster to get enough oxygen and therefore you're blowing off co2 at a faster rate which results in a respiratory alkalosis. This can be prevented by a medication called Diamox (acetazolamide) and also controlling how high you ascend in a day. ...Read more
Potassium shift: the concentration of electrolytes in the body and blood stream are very complex. The body strives to maintain normal concentrations of potassium, acid, as well as electrical charge. Acidosis causes a build up of hydrogen and cells will shift hydrogen and potassium to prevent acid buildup as a result potassium goes up, the reverse occurs when alkalosis happens ...Read more
