Can anyone discuss how changes in respiratory function can impact pH? For example, if someone has acidosis, what will happen to respiratory function? Will you increase or decrease ventilation as a way to compensate? We will learn about this more in future chapters and in Pathophysiology but if anyone wants to elaborate, you are welcome.

Also, what impact does a drop in pH have on chemical bonds?
