Default resp alkalosis in restrictive diseases??

hello everyone..i was doing pathology restrictive lung diseases in goljan.he says that in the Rdiseases and ARDS there is respiratory alkalosis...How is that possible if there is fibrosis there must be less diffusion of Co2 from blood into alveoli and hence it must cause acidosis rgt? cAN someone explain why its alkalosis?

thanks..

I just guess they blow out lots of co2 . But in ARDS goljan ,he says respiratory acidosis and ARDS is a restrictive lung dz. So probably some kind of error, haven't checked the errata. I just read the section again. It mentions Respiratory Alkalosis only in chronic Interstitial fibrosis. So probably they manage to blow out more co2 in chronic lung fibrosis.
