A patient has severe pneumonia, which has thickened the respiratory membrane. Despite oxygen therapy, he still has rapid breathing and feels he is not getting enough air. This is because your blood pH has increased and stimulated an increase in your respiratory rate.
c. his blood pH increased and stimulated an increase in his respiratory rate.
<h3>How does respiratory rate affect pH?</h3>
When it is respiratory, it occurs due to an increase in the amount of volatile acids in the body, which lead to an increase in pCO2. When it is metabolic, it occurs due to the accumulation of non-volatile acids, which lead to the loss (excessive consumption) of bases, mainly bicarbonate, causing a drop in pH.
With this information, we can conclude that The respiratory system is the main controller of blood pH levels. The increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood causes an increase in H+ ions and, consequently, in acidity. Likewise, the decrease in carbon dioxide levels leads to an increase in blood alkalinity.
<span>Yes, through biological studies it has been shown that we can determine and learn about our genetics. In today's world, it is as easy as counting 1,2,3 to determine what a child might look like or what he/she will inherit from the mother and father.
Back to the classroom, during biology class you are taught how to create genetic calculators that will give you specific answers on how a baby will look like when you mix two people. Furthermore, science and technology make this even easier. In today's world, there's IVF, one neutral pro and con of that is that you get to choose how your baby might look like and by doing this you are predetermining what genotype the baby will inherit from the mother</span>
<span>The question says, the formation of plaque and halitosis can be avoided by brushing and flossing at least ............The correct option is 'twice a day'. It is recommended that one brush his teeth after every meal, but if this is not practicable, then at least twice daily, morning and night. This helps to maintain the teeth in perfect condition.</span><span />
