Finally understood the anion gap!! Thank you! The chart with the green red and blue midgets I found very funny and creative and even if I took this course several months ago, I still remember perfectly the chart because of them!

There is a minor mistake
By Esi D. on 09. August 2017 for Metabolic Acidosis & Alkalosis

On the slide about respiratory compensation for metabolic acidosis, the compensation slope with decrease Pco2 level has a PCO2 value of 60 which should be 20. Becauase in respiratory Compensation for MA PCO2 slightly decreases That is just a typo, but can been confusing The lecture itself is very good

And easy and comprehensive review
