It is, therefore, important to understand the mechanisms involved in maintaining the body’s normal acid-base balance, and the consequences of acid-base disturbances. Acid-base balance, is it really a balancing act? The pH is a measurement of acidity or alkalinity of the blood. It is inversely proportional to the number of hydrogen ions (H+) in the blood. The more H+ present, the lower the pH will be. Likewise, the fewer H+ present, the higher the pH will be. The pH of a solution is measured on a scale from 1 (very acidic) to 14 (very alkalotic).

Likewise if excess acid is added to the solution, the alkali salt part of the buffer reacts to neutralize it. In this way, the body’s buffers can be regarded as chemical sponges, soaking up surplus H+ or releasing them as required. The entire base that is available for immediate neutralization of acids produced by cell metabolism is in the form of buffer salts. Thus, it is only by the chemical action of these buffers that H+ can be transported in the blood to the lungs and kidneys for excretion without the blood pH dropping drastically.
