Alkalosis is a term applied to that condition of the acid-base balance of the blood in which the concentration of the blood bicarbonate is above the normal level. It may be more broadly defined as an abnormal condition caused by the accumulation in the body of an excess of alkali or by the loss of acid. Alkalosis has been observed clinically in a number of conditions, but has, however, been most frequently encountered in cases on Sippy management or in cases with pyloric or upper intestinal obstruction accompanied by vomiting. It is not the purpose of this report to consider
