The flashcards below were created by user ajax726 on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. an acid-base imbalance characterized by an increase in H+ concentration (decreased blood pH).
    acidosis
  2. a low arterial pH due to reduced bicarbonate concentration
    metabolic acidosis
  3. a low arterial pH due to increased PCO2
    respiratory acidosis
  4. psysiologic pump that moves fluid from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration; requires adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for energy
    active transport
  5. an acid-base imbalance characterized by a reduction in H+ concentration (increased blood pH).
    alkalosis
  6. a high arterial pH with increased bicarbonate concentration
    metabolic alkalosis
  7. a high arterial pH due to reduced PCO2
    respiratory alkalosis
  8. the process by which solutes move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration; does not require expenditure of energy
    diffusion
  9. the pressure created by the weight of fluid against the wall that contains it.  in the body, hydrostatic pressure in blood vessels results from the weight of fluid itself and the force resulting from cardiac contraction.
    hydrostatic pressure
  10. the process by which fluid moves across a semipermeable membrane from an area of low solute concentration to an area of high solute concentration; the process continues until the solute concentrations are equal on both sides of the membrane
    osmisis
