What does this mean in relation to Acute Renal Failure?

CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = H+ + CO3
Thank you for your help
That refers to the ionic dissociation that occurs in the renal tubules, aiding the body in regulating acid/base balance.With regard to acute renal failure, there is a rapid drop in glomerular filtration, which does not allow blood to be filtered, and thus does not allow the ionic dissociation to occur. The effect of this is metabolic acidosis that goes unregulated by the renal system.
time to go casket shopping
it's how the body compensates for acute changes in pH, by generating either more acid (H+) or more base (HCO3-) depending on the acid-base status.
