Which one of the following statements explains why the respiratory system is important in ensuring the correct acid-base balance of blood? O The respiratory system alone can maintain blood pH O Metabolic acids such as lactic acid are volatile and so can be breathed off to relieve acidosis Long term acidosis can be reversed by the respiratory system Short-term metabolic acidosis can be relieved through hyperventilation t arterial non-carbonic acid generated H* are sensed by the central chemoreceptors
