Respiratory acidosis is a condition that occurs when the lungs can't remove enough of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by the body. Excess CO2 causes the pH of blood and other bodily fluids to decrease, making them too acidic. ... Oxygen passes from the lungs into the blood. CO2 passes from the blood into the lungs.

↓respiration = ↑ CO2 + H2CO3 = ↓ HCO3 : H2CO3 = ↓blood pH

*Caused by CO2 or the imbalance of H2CO3
