tricky

I go with A

vomitting causes metabolic alkalosis, but this patient has metabolic acidosis

metabolic acidosis+hypotension+excessive vomitting----> may be intussuscption induced lactic acidosis (due to necrosis)->increased lactic acid




  #2

vomiting ...alkalosis

and

diarrhea . predominate .> metabolic acidosis





  #3

B) Impaired ventilation


  #4

shocked


  #5

A IS MOST REASONABLE
