Summary 'Part 1: Ups and Downs of pH' is part of a series of films from Cengage Learning Australia. Part 1: Ups and Downs of pH skillfully blends animation, graphics, and clinical situations to explain the principles of acid base metabolism. It explains how the body functions to maintain the essential balance between acids and bases. It describes how the lungs, kidneys, buffer systems, and intracellular ion shifts serve to correct acidosis or alkalosis. Topics include the ionization of water, the meaning of the pH measurement, intra-cellular and extra cellular ions, and the bicarbonate buffer system. The second program focuses on acid base imbalances that are due to altered patterns of respiration. It emphasizes primary causes, contributing factors, and signs and symptoms. The program explains fully how the body compensates for these imbalances, and illustrates nursing assessments, nursing diagnoses, and appropriate interventions. Building on the information presented in the first and second programs, the third program focuses primarily on individuals experiencing imbalances as a result of metabolic dysfunctions. It fully describes how the body compensates for metabolic imbalances and emphasizes nursing assessment, diagnoses, and appropriate interventions
