Metabolic acidosis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A 24-year-old man with Type I Diabetes was found unconscious in his home. He had been depressed recently and was known to have become increasingly non-compliant with his insulin therapy and diet. Lying next to him was a glass bottle without a label on it with only a few drops of liquid in it. When he was brought to the ER he appeared to have labored breathing and a comprehensive blood panel, arterial blood gases, urinalysis, and a chest X-ray were performed. His test results are summarized in Table 12.1.
