does anyone know what the timeline is for salicylate poisoning? i know it initially starts out as respiratory alkalosis because of the direct stimulation of the respiratory center and later becomes AG metabolic acidosis as salicylate levels rise, but what is the timeline of all this? just asking since i do recall seeing some questions about salicylate poisoning blood gas levels coming in at different times...but it was a while ago so i don't know which test in UWorld has the explanation. thanks!!
