Management of metabolic acidosis: does correction with sodium bicarbonate do more harm than good?

Summary of "Management of metabolic acidosis: does correction with sodium bicarbonate do more harm than good?"

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 in chronic kidney disease.

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...

D-lactic acidosis - case report and review of the literature.

D-lactic acidosis is a rare complication that occurs mainly in patients with malabsorption due to a surgically altered gastrointestinal tract anatomy, namely in short bowel syndrome or after bariatric...

The evaluation of the relationship between serum levels of Interleukin-6 and Interleukin-10 and metabolic acidosis in hemodialysis patients.

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...

Disorders of the acid-base balance and the anion gap.

The regulation of the acid-base balance and pH is critical for the organism. The most important buffer system is CO2 / HCO3(-). The kidney controls systemic bicarbonate and therefore the metabolic reg...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A pathologic condition resulting from accumulation of acid or depletion of the alkaline reserve (bicarbonate) content of the blood and body tissues, and characterized by an increase in hydrogen ion concentration (decrease in pH). (Dorland, 27th ed)
