Respiratory Acidosis is emergency case that involves with the increase in carbon dioxide concentration in blood and decreases ventilation. It results in lowering in pH of blood, depression of central respiratory centre and causes neuromuscular diseases.
Chronic respiratory acidosis occurs over a long period of time. This leads to a stable situation, because the kidneys increase body chemicals, such as bicarbonate, that help restore the body's acid-base balance.
Acute respiratory acidosis is a condition in which carbon dioxide builds up very quickly, before the kidneys can return the body to a state of balance.
