DIAGNOSTIC CHECK SHEET
Our symptoms registered 8 times for chart 10, 5 times for chart 7, 2
times for chart 8, 4 times for chart 9, and 4 times for chart 11. Since
chart 10 received the most, chart 10 is the prime place to look. A

marked in red and you will see how it leads us to Post Lamb Acidosis,
page 201 in the text. Our example continues after the chart. The
charts in the book are clearer than the reproduced chart below.

of the problem.
