    Here's this week's sample CME board review question on acid-base disorders:

    A 17-year-old girl presents to you after an argument with her parents. She describes an acute change in her hearing and some abdominal discomfort and nausea/vomiting.

    Her vital signs are: heart rate of 120 beats/minute, blood pressure of 135/80 mm Hg, respiratory rate of 22 breaths/minute, and temperature of 100 °F.

    Laboratory studies reveal that the patient is pregnant and include the following:
    Serum sodium: 140
    Chloride: 100
    Bicarbonate: 18
    Blood urea nitrogen: 20
    Creatinine: 1.5
    Glucose: 100

    Blood gas study is obtained that reveals a pH value of 7.50, a pCO2 value of 25, and bicarbonate level of 19.
