Abstract

The importance of the release of CO2 from a bicarbonate load is dependent on the concentration of the blood non-bicarbonate buffers. It is therefore likely that the adverse effects of bicarbonate therapy linked to the CO2 generation are more important in patients with high blood albumin and hemoglobin concentrations.
