Demonstration of short duration of action of Sodium Bicarbonate Bolus


Bicarbonate is the major extracellular buffer in the body. It is present in all body fluids and can be generated from CO2 and H2O in the presence of carbonic anhydrase. Bicarbonate on the chemistry panel gives an indication of acid-base status, but does not replace blood gas measurement as it does not supply information about the respiratory component of acid-base status or the pH of the animal. Bicarbonate values on a chemistry panel should always be interpreted with the anion gap, which is a calculated result, and the corrected chloride. The anion gap and corrected chloride provides useful information for delineating causes of metabolic acidosis (loss or titration of bicarbonate) and can give you an indication of a mixed acid-base disturbance. Note, that this page refers to bicarbonate measurement with the chemistry analyzer and not a blood gas analyzer. For the latter, refer to laboratory detection page. Method of measurement The following method is used at Cornell University to measure bicarbonate on our automated chemistry analyzer. Bicarbonate can also be measured on the blood gas analyzer, which uses ion selective electrodes (and calculates bicarbonate from pH and hydrogen c Continue reading >>

    The hypokalemia comes when the patient gets treated with insulin, driving the glucose and K+ into the cells. The kidneys can't (and won't) move so much out through urine with the excess glucose to make for hypokalemia.

  2. Esme12

    There can be a brief period of hypoglycemia in the early stages of an elevated blood sugar (polyuria)....but by the time "ketoacidosis" sets in the Serum potassium is elevated but the cellular potassium is depleted (all that shifting that goes on)
    Diabetic ketoacidosis

    So pretty much what we would observe clinically is hyperkalemia because the osmotic duiresis does not move serum potassium significantly?

The Effects Of Acute Total Asphyxia And Metabolic Acidosis On Cerebrospinal Fluid

Pediatr. Res., 14: 286-290 (1980) acid-base balance cerebrospinal fluid asphyxia metabolic acidosis Bicarbonate Regulation in Newborn Puppies EUGENE E. NATTIE"'' AND WILLIAM H. EDWARDS Departments of Maternal and Child Health and Physiology, Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, New Ifampshire, USA Summary We evaluated CSF [HCO;] regulation in lightly anesthetized newborn puppies following: (1) acute total asphyxiq (2) metabolic acidosis; and (3) metabolic acidosis induced after acute asphyxia. Five and one-half min of total asphyxia resulted in a 4.4 mM/liter decrease in mean CSF [HCO;]. During 65 min of recovery with mechanical ventilation mean CSF [HCOJ] increased 1.7 mM/ liter. Mean plasma [HCO;] decreased 7 mM/liter and recovered 4.5 mM/liter in the same period. We produced a stable metabolic acidosic for 4 hr using a peritoneal dialysis technique with PaCOs maintained at the normal value. With acidosis in nonaspbyxiated control puppies, CSF [HCOSl decreased steadily. At 4 hr, the ratio, ACSF [HCOSl/Aplasma [HCO;], was 0.43, a value close to that observed in adults of many species with metabolic acid- base disturbances, 0.41. With acidosis in asphyxiated puppies allowed 1 hr of r Continue reading >>

    Recently tried getting out of a weight-loss plateau by doing a ketogenic diet, which has ALWAYS worked for me in the past, both before and after my gastric sleeve surgery.
    I was, according to the urinalysis strips, in ketosis for 10 days, but my weight stayed within 1-2 pounds of where I started.
    Could it be an issue related to my gallbladder?
    About a year ago, I was having some pain after eating, and had some tests done—my family doc and my bariatric surgeon agreed that my gallbladder was no longer working properly (no stones, but apparently sludgy inside). They said it should be removed at some point before I develop stones.
    In the lead-up to my wedding in the summer of 2016, I increased my workout regimen by working with a personal trainer, and kept to a limited calorie diet for 10 weeks—I was able to put on some muscle, and lose about 5 pounds, and both my trainer and I were pretty surprised I didn't lose more fat.
    Now the ketosis not triggering any weight loss has me thinking it's the gallbladder problems messing with fat absorption, which is making my body not respond to ketosis.
    About me:
    41-year-old male
    6'3" 300lbs
    Gastric sleeve surgery in Dec. 2013
    Down from high of 435lbs in Fall 2013
    Lowest post-surgery weight was 287, about 18 months after surgery.

    When is the last time you had lab work done? If it hasn't been recently that might really help as a starting point.
    What are your macros like daily for ketosis? What are your carbs at?

  3. queendeborahbee

    Get rid of your gallbladder! The sludgier it gets the more difficult the removal. Mine was so sludgy that the day after surgery I was under anesthesia again for a doctor to perform an ERCP, which is an endoscopic procedure, where they vacuum out the sludge and debris which may have entered your bile duct. No fun!

What Is Renal Failure: In this video, We will share information about what is renal failure - how to identify renal failure - symptoms of renal failure. Subscribe to our channel for more videos. Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivQE7...) How to Identify Renal Failure Renal failure, also known as kidney failure, is a condition that can take two different forms: acute, when it presents itself very suddenly, and chronic, when it develops slowly over at least three months. Acute kidney failure has the potential to lead to chronic renal failure. During both types of renal failure your kidneys arent able to perform the necessary functions your body needs to stay healthy. Despite this similarity between types, the causes, symptoms, and treatments for the two kinds of renal failure vary significantly. Learning about the symptoms and causes of this disease and being able to differentiate between the two forms can be beneficial if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with renal failure.

Metabolic Alkalosis In Patients With Renal Failure

Introduction Alkalosis is most unusual in patients with advanced renal failure. When patients are also hyponatraemic, hypochloraemic and hypokalaemic, management can be a considerable challenge. The purpose of this report is to illustrate by means of three patients the potential for diagnostic uncertainty and therapeutic error in these metabolic settings and to outline some simple principles in diagnosis and management. Cases Patient 1 A 38-year-old man presented to the A&E department giving a history of vomiting and intermittent diarrhoea for 2 weeks. He could keep nothing down other than cider and water, and his urine output had fallen. His alcohol intake was excessive and he smoked heavily but he denied taking recreational drugs. His only medication was ranitidine. A known epileptic he had had a seizure 1 week previously. On several occasions in the past he had been admitted with drug overdoses. On examination his breath smelt of alcohol. He was restless but orientated with a Glasgow Coma Score (GCS) of 15/15. His blood pressure (BP) was 140/80 mmHg with a pulse of 90 beats/min in sinus rhythm. His jugular venous pressure (JVP) was visible 1 cm above the level of the manubrio– Continue reading >>

    metformin and lactic acidosis

    I am hoping that I can get some guidance from the members here. There are many of you that have a wealth of information on diabetes and things related so please bear with me. I went to the doctor yesterday and finally asked her for metformin er and was all set to try it out. Then I read the paper that came with it from the pharmacy. The warning about lactic acidosis stopped me in my tracks. Now I am afraid to take it. I searched the posts her a DD about lactic acidosis and I also found that some members said it caused them to be really fatigued. Another member posted that she had trouble with exercise because it caused leg cramps. I feel so overwhelmed now. I really wanted to try it out I believe it could help me but I don't want to put my life at risk to try it. I looked up lactic acidosis and I was reading about the bloods ph and acid in your blood. I have a problem with uric acid in my blood but I believe that is not related to lactic acidosis. I have had a problem with kidney infections and a lot of crystals in my urine and kidney stones the past year, but I believe my kidney function is ok. Does metformin cause lactic acidosis very often? Are the symptoms of lactic acidosis easy enough to pick up on so it can be caught early. I am sorry I am such a worry wart. Thank you in advance for any guidance/reassurance from you.

    All I can tell you is that millions upon millions take met with 0 issues. You are reading the absolute worst side affects. Have you see tv commericails on meds that is any meds. They say could cause heart attack, fatigue, even death no kidding. I been on met and so has my diabetic family and 0 issues other than a tad of diahrea. To me its extemely rare many here are on met me a very very long time on it. What am I saying to me its about the best D med out there other than exercise its free. It is just my opion for what its worth, I know others might have other ideas and of course its is there opinion also. Some take b-12 if they get fatigued on met, I do not get that way, all I can say is to me its as safe as can be.

    Every drug has potential side effects. Some more common than others. I'm not sure of the exact specifics, but I believe that for a side effect to be listed, it needs to happen in 1% of the people that take it.
    My husband has been on met with no side effects other than a little bit of tummy trouble. I have a dozen local diabetic friends (through volunteer work) that are also on it, and have no side effects. I do have one friend who reacts to everything and has no issues with it. I think i've only seen people with this issue a couple of times after about 15 years online haunting a variety of message boards.
    Take for example my warfarin. It can cause bleeding. Even a baby aspirin can cause this. And it does happen to some people. But the vast majority of folks don't have issues.
    Do you have some history of lactic acidosis? Or is this simply general anxiety over something new?
    All meds are a cost benefit analysis. Do you want to try the drug to alleviate a serious issue ( like high blood sugar) or do you decide to refuse it on the basis of a rare side effect and maybe get into trouble due to glucose issues? Why not try it? Discuss with your phamacist what to look for if you are worried. But basically it is a safe, effective drug.
