The conversion of CO2 to H+ and HCO- ions has tremendous implications for acid-base physiology. Every day, resting metabolism produces more than 15,000 mmol of CO2, or 15,000 mmol/L of carbonic acid, and this acid leaves the body through the lungs. By comparison, the kidneys typically excrete only 100 mmol/L of acid per day. The ability to change blood PCO2 levels rapidly by changing ventilation has a powerful effect on blood pH, so acid-base balance depends on the integrated function of respiratory and renal systems.
