Medical Definition of Sodium hydrogen carbonate

1. Carbonic acid monosodium salt (CHNaO3). A white, crystalline powder that is used as an electrolyte replenisher and systemic alkaliser. It is applied topically in solution to wash the nose, mouth, or vagina, and as a cleansing enema. Pharmacologic action: Acid neutralization. Uses: Preexisting metabolic acidosis, hyperkalemia, tricyclic or phenobarbital overdose. Dose in mEq: 0.3 * (base deficit) * (wt in kg). Potential complications: Metabolic alkalosis, hypercarbia, hyperosmolar state. Note: Since HCO3- does not cross cell membranes and CO2 does, the administration of bicarbonate may actually make tissues more acidotic. Chemical name: Carbonic acid monosodium salt. (12 Mar 2000)
