carbon dioxide level

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.

The increasing carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere is also driving climate change, resulting in warmer ocean temperatures and rising sea levels.
As the talks went on, the carbon dioxide level continued to rise.
'Pollution is an international dilemma and only trees can reduce the increasing carbon dioxide level in the environment.
The team conducted two studies to evaluate the effects of short-term drought cycles at current and elevated carbon dioxide levels. The studies used soil-plant-atmosphere research chambers that provide precise control of carbon dioxide level, air temperature, irrigation, and humidity.
These beads are soaked in liquid carbon dioxide and held at a temperature and pressure that prevents foaming until the internal carbon dioxide level reaches 4 to 20 wt%.
According to the regulation of the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs [7], the permitted maximum carbon dioxide level in classrooms is 1000 ppm, relative humidity 30-70% and indoor temperature 19-25[degrees]C.
At Tropical, the security officer uses the device to measure the ambient carbon dioxide level outside the container and then to measure the level inside the container.
In packages with an initial carbon dioxide level of 100%, a considerable pressure decrease occurred, known as the "pseudovacuum effect." The changes in the oxygen level were caused by the oxidation of the meat and by diffusion through the packaging film.
In packages with an initial carbon dioxide level of 100% and sometimes with that of 50%, a considerable pressure decrease occurred, known as the pseudovacuum effect.
The model began with an atmospheric carbon dioxide level of 355 parts per million (in July the actual figure stood at 392 ppm).
Lincoln at the University of South Carolina at Columbia found that cabbage-butterfly larvae dining on plants grown at double the ambient carbon dioxide level needed 43 percent more food to maintain the same growth as larvae eating plants raised at current levels.
