Metabolic acidosis is a very common finding in critically ill patients and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Metabolic acidosis in critical care patients is commonly the result of either anaerobic metabolism or failure of excretion of endogenous acid. Other causes include renal or gastrointestinal loss of bicarbonate and the intake of exogenous acids.

Metabolic acidosis (MAC) is a constant symptom of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in advanced stages. However, its onset and degree do not depend only on the decrease of glomerular filtration but also on...
Chronic kidney disease is defined as progressive kidney dysfunction. The levels of various cytokines increase in hemodialysis (HD) patients. High levels of interleukins (ILs) and presence of metabolic...
Metformin-associated lactic acidosis (MALA) is a rare but life-threatening complication. We report a case of MALA in a man aged 71 years who was treated with continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT...
This randomized, double-blind controlled study evaluated the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate-buffered lidocaine on reducing pain during imaging-guided breast biopsies.
Hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis can occur in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and may affect the acid-base interpretation during treatment.
The purpose of the present study is to compare the adjunct treatment of metabolic or mixed severe acidosis in the critically ill using Sodium Bicarbonate as a buffer to increase the plasma...
This study evaluates the effect of oral sodium bicarbonate treatment on the intrarenal renin-angiotensin-system in adult patients with a metabolic acidosis and chronic kidney disease. This...
The goal of this pilot study is to determine whether oral sodium bicarbonate can raise low serum bicarbonate concentration in people without chronic kidney disease (CKD). Participants will...
This pilot phase I trial studies the safety of long-term use of sodium bicarbonate in patients with cancer. Sodium bicarbonate may neutralize tumor acidity and as a result may inhibit the ...
This study will compare the Gingival Bleeding and Gingival Inflammation following twice daily use of a sodium bicarbonate experimental dentifrice compared to a 0% sodium bicarbonate toothp...
Bicarbonate transporters that move BICARBONATE IONS in exchange of CHLORIDE IONS or SODIUM IONS across membranes. They regulate acid-base HOMEOSTASIS, cell volume and intracellular pH. Members include CHLORIDE-BICARBONATE ANTIPORTERS (SLC4A1, 2, 3, and 9); SODIUM-COUPLED BICARBONATE TRANSPORTERS (SLC4A4 and 5, 7, 8 and 10); and a sodium borate cotransporter (SLC4A11 protein).
Proteins that cotransport sodium ions and bicarbonate ions across cellular membranes.
A congenital or acquired condition of insufficient production of ALDOSTERONE by the ADRENAL CORTEX leading to diminished aldosterone-mediated synthesis of Na(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE in renal tubular cells. Clinical symptoms include HYPERKALEMIA, sodium-wasting, HYPOTENSION, and sometimes metabolic ACIDOSIS.
The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.
Membrane proteins that allow the exchange of chloride ions for bicarbonate ions across the cellular membrane. The action of specific antiporters in this class serve important functions such as allowing the efficient exchange of bicarbonate across red blood cell membranes as they passage through capillaries and the reabsorption of bicarbonate ions by the kidney.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
