Metabolic alkalosis in a premature neonate

L.D. Tantsiura, I.V. Kyselova


The article presents a clinical case of metabolic alkalosis in a premature newborn with lung immaturity, who was treated in the neonatal intensive care unit. The metabo-lic alkalosis was found during the planned assessment of the acid-base balance, and it turned out to be chloride-resistant one. That’s why it required an extensive additional examination of a newborn in order to diagnose causes of metabolic alkalosis.
