carbon dioxide level

A measure of bicarbonates in the blood based on a venipuncture specimen. It is reduced in diabetic ketoacidosis, lactic acidosis, alcoholic ketoacidosis, kidney disease, renal failure, diarrhoea, Addison’s disease, ethylene glycol poisoning, methanol poisoning, severe vomiting, hyperaldosteronism and Cushing syndrome.
