Pulmonary Embolism ABG Question

Sorry in advanced if this is a stupid question. I've been trying to figure out why a PE is considered respiratory alkalosis. I thought it would be a metabolic acidosis with respiratory compensation. Isn't the mechanism for a pulmonary embolism: PE -> decrease PO2 -> lactic acid generation(metabolic acidosis) -> tachypnea (respiratory compensation) I would appreciate any help on what I am missing. This has really been nagging at me today.

Pulmonary thromboembolism is a condition that is familiar to forensic pathologists for its common cause of sudden unexpected death. Fatal pulmonary thromboembolism following deep vein thrombosis has been previously reported as a consequence of major ankle injury but not following minor ankle injury. Here, I report the case of sudden unexpected death in a 54-year-old female without know...

Conclusions: Patients prescribed warfarin after hip fractures had higher rates of DVT and PE compared with those prescribed LMWH, although both agents had similar complication profiles. Level of Evidence: Therapeutic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

Conclusion(s)There is a higher incidence of cardiac arrest in pregnancy compared to both previous estimates in the Netherlands and recently established figures in the United Kingdom. Main causes of maternal cardiac arrest are potentially preventable and/or treatable complications of pregnancy. Insufficient use of critical elements of obstetric resuscitation identifies the need for enhanced obstetric emergency training for obstetric and non-obstetric first responders.

CONCLUSION:  FXIII supplementation stabilized venous thrombi, even in the presence of anticoagulants, and did not alter thrombus size. Supplemental FXIII may be useful to stabilize DVT and be an alternative adjunctive treatment to minimize PE, even when anticoagulants are used. PMID: 31005064 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Fatal pulmonary thromboembolism following deep vein thrombosis has been previously reported as a consequence of major ankle injury but not following minor ankle injury. Here, I report the case of sudden unexpected death in a 54-year-old female without known underlying risk factors for venous thromboembolism, except for a history of minor injury at her left ankle, which possibly caused l...

Authors: Yang H, Zhang J, Huan Y, Xu Y, Guo R Abstract Objective: To investigate the value of the PTX-3 test in evaluating the prognosis of acute pulmonary embolism (APE). Method: 117 APE patients were selected and divided into two groups according to plasma PTX-3 levels, including the group in which PTX - 3 ≥ 3.0 ng/mL (n = 42) and the group in which PTX - 3

We report here that, hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-2α is translated from pre-existing mRNAs and stabilized against proteolytic degradation in enucleate platelets exposed to hypoxia. Hypoxic stress, too, stimulates platelets to synthesize plasminogen-activator inhibitor (PAI)-1 and shed extracellular vesicles, both of which potentially contribute to pro-thrombotic phenotype associated with hypoxia. Stabilization of HIF-α by administering hypoxia-mimetics into mice accelerates thrombus formation in mesenteric arterioles. In agreement, platelets from patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and high al...
