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.
74), roughly on a par with cord arterial pH and 5-min Apgar score, but it significantly underperformed compared with base excess
(DeLong statistic, P <0.
2]: partial pressure of carbon dioxide, BE: base excess
Unmeasured anions identified by the Fencl-Stewart method predict mortality better than base excess
, anion gap, and lactate in patients in the pediatric intensive care unit.
1, a base excess
less than -10, a 5-minute Apgar score of less than 7, and neonatal ICU (NICU) admission.
Her condition deteriorated, with generalised peritonitis, a very high base excess
0 or a base excess
of -12 or higher in cord or venous blood taken from newborns within 60 min of birth, or the need for resuscitation at birth and/or for positive pressure ventilation (>3 min) (15).
The indications for DCS were major multiple and complex injuries, evidence of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), a base excess
greater than 10, a core temperature less than 35[degrees]c, and transfusion of more than 10 units of blood.
The present research demonstrated that urinary pH can be used, with high accuracy, to predict the base excess
values in cattle with experimentally acute rumen lactic acidosis.
