From logistic regression analysis, we estimated that infants of women with PGDM were five times more likely to be acidotic (OR 5.31; 95% CI 1.15-24.58) compared to the controls.
As illustrated in our report, a decrease in the myocardial contractility follows the hypoxic and acidotic states established in the patients with NPPE.
These patients were more acidotic, dehydrated, and hyperglycemic, which appear to increase the risk for development of CE [4].
Her arterial blood gases continued to deteriorate, and 3 h after admission she was severely acidotic. She was intubated and moved to the ICU.
It was noted that, during sleep when on the same ventilator settings as those during wakefulness, the patient became acidotic and was retaining carbon dioxide (CO2), with a partial pressure of C[O.sub.2] (PaC[O.sub.2]) of 76 millimeters of mercury, while breathing only at the set rate and not initiating her own breaths.
Arterial PH was acidotic at 7.21 with a C[O.sub.2] of 27 suggestive of nonanion gap metabolic acidosis with adequate respiratory compensation.
On arrival to the emergency department she had fixed dilated pupils and was found to be significantly acidotic (pH 6.7, lactate 26 mmol/L) with associated hypokalaemia of 2.1 mmol/L (range 3.5-5.2 mmol/L) (see Tables 1 and 2).
At this point, the patient was hypotensive and acidotic. A decision was made to perform damage control and a temporary abdominal closure and to transfer the patient to ICU for resuscitation.
The authors attributed this acidotic state to decreased blood flow and intestinal hypoxia; other authorities have theoretically implicated [32,34,74] and empirically measured [75] energy (i.e., ATP) depletion in this process (a complete description of a theoretical energy depletion model involving EHS appears in [76]).

The most common sign of ARF was acidotic breathing and of CRF was pallor and fluid over load.
