This value represents the bicarbonate ion concentration in the fluid corrected to a normal PCO2 of 40 mmHg and, in much the same way as base excess
, describes the metabolic component of a patient's acid-base balance.

Calculated values include bicarbonate, total carbon dioxide, base excess

The EG6+ cartridge will offer tests for blood gases along with sodium, potassium, hematocrit, as well as calculated values for bicarbonate, base excess
, oxygen saturation, total carbon dioxide, and hemoglobin.
