How do you test for metabolic alkalosis? If this is confirmed how is it treated?

Treat the cause: The most certain way to test for alkalosis (or acidosis) is with an arterial blood gas test. If the arterial ph is abnormally high, there is alkalosis. M. A. Typically shows an elevated serum co2 level, because of increased bicarbonate. The treatment depends on the cause of m.A. Repeated vomiting causes m.A. Because of loss of hcl (acid) from the stomach. You treat the cause of vomiting. ...Read more

What to do if I have respiratory acidosis compensating for metabolic alkalosis or is metabolic alkalosis compensating for respiratory acidosis?

Difference....: If your ph in your blood is lower than normal, then you have an acidosis. If the ph in your blood is higher than normal, then you have an alkalosis. To figure out if the abnormality is respiratory or metabolic, you need to know the carbon dioxide level. An arterial blood gas test would give the information needed to diagnose the disorder, including whether or not there is compensation! ...Read more
