  • Considering the cardiac effects of sodium bicarbonate

    Sodium bicarbonate has been shown to reduce myocardial and systemic oxygen consumption and to decrease myocardial contractility in heart failure [see Clinical Pharmacology section, this issue, p17]. ' . This Information should be used as a strong argument against the routine use of sodium bicarbonate In cardiac arrest'.

    Sodium bicarbonate should only be administered when there is a pre-existing metabolic acidosis.

    However, in patients requiring chronic haemodialysis, sodium bicarbonate appears to improve cardiovascular stability and is therefore preferred to acetate as the dialysate base replacement.
