Summary Validate simplified approach to diagnosing clinical acid-base disorders
Understanding clinical acid-base disorders is a key component of patient care in the critical care disciplines: anaesthesia, intensive care, and emergency medicine. Unfortunately current approaches requires multiple equations to diagnose complex conditions. It is likely that this approach can be simplified for routine patient care.
This project aims to use existing patient arterial blood gas data from several sources including Austin hospital ICU to compare approaches to diagnosing acid-base disorders and validate the simplified approach. In addition to those interested in clinical critical care this work would interest those working in applied physiology including exercise physiology.
