However, the alkalinization of the unstirred layer is already a constant factor in the nonlesioned cuticle and is immediately increased dramatically after a lesion occurs.
Improved peribulbar anaesthesia with alkalinization and hyaluronidase.
This fact can be attributed to the alkalinization of the cathodic areas which, in turn, increases the efficiency of the hydroxide/oxide passive film formed on the cathodic areas of the zinc surface.
Treatment of cystinuria aims to prevent new stone formation and consists of increased fluid intake, urine alkalinization, and cystine-binding drugs for avoiding urinary cystine hypersaturation, which occurs when the urinary cystine concentration is >250 mg/L at pH 4.
7) Neutralization or alkalinization of the skin has been shown to disrupt corneodesmosomes in the stratum corneum, causing functional abnormalities and aberrant permeability barrier homeostasis.
Sodium bicarbonate is further indicated in the treatment of certain drug intoxications, including barbiturates (where dissociation of the barbiturate-protein complex is desired), in poisoning by salicylates or methyl alcohol and in hemolytic reactions requiring alkalinization of the urine to diminish nephrotoxicity of blood pigments.
