Carbon dioxide acidosis is a medical condition in which the air we breathe in is unable to remove enough carbon dioxide from our bloodstream. The body's normal pH balance becomes disturbed, leading to acidosis. There are several synonyms for this condition such as respiratory acidosis, CO2 retention, hypercapnia, and acidemia. Respiratory acidosis occurs when the lungs cannot remove enough carbon dioxide, which leads to an increase in carbonic acid in the blood. CO2 retention results in the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the body. Hypercapnia means higher levels of carbon dioxide in the blood, while acidemia refers to the abnormal acidity of the blood. All of these medical terms refer to the same condition as carbon dioxide acidosis.
