PMID:  2551599     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient with a history of previous mechanical ventilation for asthma was hospitalized with acute, severe asthma; metabolic acidosis; and hyperlactatemia. In addition to standard therapy, she was successfully treated with face-mask CPAP and IV sodium bicarbonate infusion. This therapy may help prevent mechanical ventilation in some patients with acute, severe asthma and lactic acidosis.
