I had intended to write about Acidosis this time but having spent sometime reading the literature I decided that the article written by Appel et al was the most informative data available.
It was published in a peer reviewed nursing journal this year and having appraised the reference list I feel is academically sound.
‘Acidosis can be described as a physiologic condition caused by the body’s inability to buffer excess H+ ions’ (Appel, 2015).
