A patient is treated depending on its cause. For alkalosis caused by hyperventilation, breathing into a paper bag allows you to keep more carbon dioxide in your body, which improves the alkalosis. If your oxygen level is low, you may receive oxygen. Medicines may be needed to correct chemical loss such as chloride and potassium (Respiratory alkalosis, 2014) Because of their delicate fluid and electrolyte status the elderly are at risk for metabolic
Type one diabetes is when the pancreas produces little to no insulin in the body, because of this a person might have to either wear an insulin pump or take insulin shots.

Vitamin B12 (Cobalmin) is a water soluble vitamin and plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and in the formation of red blood cells. Vitamin B12 deficiency can occur if the body does not absorb enough vitamin B12 from the gastrointestinal tract or when there is not enough dietary intake of the vitamin. One common cause of deficiency is as a result of pernicious anaemia which is an autoimmune disorder that results in inflammation and damage to the stomach lining, and loss of parietal cells. The parietal cells produce intrinsic factor, a protein needed for absorption of Vitamin B12 in the gut. Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency can include depression, decreased fertility, poor muscle function, poor development

Once people begin developing a tolerance to drugs, it takes a higher dose of the drug to get the same high

There are many things that can be done in order to manage atrial fibrillation such as undergoing certain procedures and taking certain medicine. With atrial fibrillation the medicine can be taken to aid with controlling the heart rate and preventing blood clots. The medication that can be used for this is amiodarone and Propafenone because they are antiarrhythmic. Antiarrhythmic drugs are use help with arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) in the heart. Amiodarone is a group three antiarrhythmic drug which means that it works by blocking the potassium channels which then slows down the cells ability to repolarize but it has properties of all four type of antiarrhythmic.
There are usually two major types of heart failure. The Rright-sided failure, occurs when the right ventricle is not able to pump blood effectively into the pulmonary artery, causing increased volume and pressure in the venous system and causing peripheral edema. Left sided heart failure (CHF) which involves with decreased cardiac output and elevated pulmonary venous pressure may be acute, chronic, and mild to severe. It is further divided into systolic failure and diastolic failure. Systolic failure happens when the heart cannot contract forcefully during systole to eject adequate amount of blood into the circulation.
