However, treatment with ion-exchange resins or renal dialysis may be needed. Altered internal distribution of K+ Acidosis The effects of acidosis on internal K+ balance are complicated. As a general rule, acidotic states are often accompanied by hyperkalaemia, as K+ moves from the ICF into the ECF. Although this is the case for acute respiratory acidosis, and for both acute and chronic metabolic acidosis, it is more unusual to find hyperkalaemia in chronic respiratory acidosis. It is important to note that a high plasma [K+] may be accompanied by a reduced total body K+ as a result of excessive urinary K+ losses in both chronic respiratory acidosis and metabolic acidosis.
