Bicarbonate Solutions

Bicarbonate Solutions

Bicarbonate levels used in dialysis solutions are set slightly higher than normal blood levels to encourage diffusion of bicarbonate into the blood and to act as a pH buffer to neutralize the metabolic acidosis that is often present in these patients.
Our metabolism constantly produces acids, which are normally excreted by the kidney.
Patients with lack kidney function accumulate acids so neutralizing the accumulating acids has to happen during dialysis.
