  • Respiratory alkalosis with reduced respiratory acid causing the high pH
  • Metabolic acidosis not compensated by respiratory change
  • Normal acid base balance
  • Metabolic alkalosis not compensated by respiratory change
  • Respiratory acidosis
  • Metabolic alkalosis compensated by respiratory acid retention
