INTRODUCTION: We hypothesized that adding sodium bicarbonate (bicarb) to normal saline (NS) irrigation during ureteroscopy in patients with uric acid (UA) nephrolithiasis may assist in dissolving small stone fragments produced during laser lithotripsy. In vitro testing was performed to determine whether dissolution of UA fragments could be accomplished within 1 hour. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total 100% UA renal calculi were fragmented, filtered, and separated by size...

The aim of this study was to investigate if a pre-exercise alkalosis-mediated attenuation of HSP72 had any effect on the response of the same stress protein after a subsequent exercise. Seven physically active males [25.0 ± 6.5 years, 182.1 ± 6.0 cm, 74.0 ± 8.3 kg, peak aerobic power (PPO) 316 ± 46 W] performed a repeated sprint exercise (EXB1) following a dose of 0.3 g kg(-1) body mass of sodium bicarbonate (BICARB), or a placebo of 0.045 g kg(-1) body mass of sodium chloride (PLAC). Participants then completed a 90-min intermittent cycling protocol (EXB2)...

We tested the hypothesis that ingestion of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) prior to an acute session of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) would augment signaling cascades and gene expression linked to mitochondrial biogenesis in human skeletal muscle. On two occasions separated by ∼1 wk, nine men (mean ± SD: age 22 ± 2 yr, weight 78 ± 13 kg, V̇O(2 peak) 48 ± 8 ml·kg(-1)·min(-1)) performed 10 × 60-s cycling efforts at an intensity eliciting ∼90% of maximal heart rate (263 ± 40 W), interspersed with 60 s of recovery...

BACKGROUND: Metabolic acidosis is more common with advancing chronic kidney disease, and has been associated with impaired physical function, impaired bone health, accelerated decline in kidney function and increased vascular risk. Although oral sodium bicarbonate is widely used to correct metabolic acidosis, there exist potential risks of therapy including worsening hypertension and fluid overload. Little trial evidence exists to decide whether oral bicarbonate therapy is of net benefit in advanced chronic kidney disease, particularly in older people who are most commonly affected, and in whom physical function, quality of life and vascular health are at least as important outcomes as decline in renal function...

Modified Hedley fraction method was used to study the forms and profile distribution in the tidal river network region subjected to rapid deposition and hydrologic disturbance in the Yellow River Delta (YRD) estuary, eastern China. The results showed that the total P (Pt) ranged from 612.1 to 657.8 mg kg(-1). Dilute HCl extractable inorganic P (Pi) was the predominant form in all profiles, both as absolute values and as a percentage of total extracted Pi. The NaOH extractable organic P (Po) was the predominant form of total extracted Po, while Bicarb-Pi and C...

Conductive polymer, one of the most attractive electrode materials, has been applied to coat anode of MFC to improve its performance recently. In this paper, two conductive polymer materials, polyaniline (PANI) and poly(aniline-co-o-aminophenol) (PAOA) were used to modify carbon felt anode and physical and chemical properties of the modified anodes were studied. The power output and biodiversity of modified anodes, along with unmodified carbon anode were compared in two-chamber MFCs. Results showed that the maximum power density of PANI and PAOA MFC could reach 27...

Exercise lowers the cerebral metabolic ratio of O2 to carbohydrate (glucose+1/2 lactate) and metabolic acidosis appears to promote cerebral lactate uptake. However, the influence of pH on cerebral lactate uptake and, in turn, on the cerebral metabolic ratio during exercise is not known. Sodium bicarbonate (Bicarb, 1 M; 350-500 ml) or an equal volume of normal saline (Sal) was infused intravenously at a constant rate during a '2000 m' maximal ergometer row in six male oarsmen (23±2 years; mean±S.D.). During the Sal trial, pH decreased from 7...

OBJECTIVES: Anion gap (AG) and serum bicarbonate concentration (BICARB) may help confirm a diagnosis of seizure in an unwitnessed collapse; however, little data exist to support this practice. Our objective was to assess the association between AG metabolic acidosis and generalized seizure and to derive a simple score to predict seizure. METHODS: This was a case-control study at an urban teaching hospital. Patients transported to our emergency department with witnessed loss of consciousness and final confirmed diagnoses of generalized seizure (cases) or syncope (controls) were eligible for enrollment...

Pre-exercise alkalosis and an active recovery improve the physiological state of recovery through slightly different mechanisms (e. g. directly increasing extracellular bicarbonate (HCO3 (-)) vs. increasing blood flow), and combining the two conditions may provide even greater influence on blood acid-base recovery from high-intensity exercise. Nine subjects completed four trials (Placebo Active ( PLAC A), sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) Active ( BICARB A), Placebo Passive ( PLAC P) and NaHCO3 Passive ( BICARB P)), each consisting of three, 30-s maximal efforts with a three min recovery between each effort...

Accumulation of thick, sticky mucus is a hallmark of the genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF) and has a central role in CF pathophysiology. Mutations in the CF transmembrane regulator (CFTR) ion channel are known to result in abnormally thick and sticky mucus; however, why mucus accumulates in CF is still not completely understood. In this issue of the JCI, Garcia and colleagues show that mucin--the heavily glycosylated protein contained within mucus--requires CFTR and bicarbonate in order to be released from mouse intestine (see the related article beginning on page 2613)...
