• All waters in contact with the atmosphere absorb carbon dioxide, and as these waters come into contact with rocks and sediments they acquire metal ions, most commonly calcium and magnesium , so most natural waters that come from streams, lakes, and especially wells, can be regarded as dilute solutions of these bicarbonates. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has a one to one ratio of ammonium ions to bicarbonate ions . (everything2.com)
  • With carbonic acid as the central intermediate species, bicarbonate - in conjunction with water, hydrogen ions, and carbon dioxide - forms this buffering system, which is maintained at the volatile equilibrium required to provide prompt resistance to pH changes in both the acidic and basic directions. (wikipedia.org)
  • In freshwater ecology, strong photosynthetic activity by freshwater plants in daylight releases gaseous oxygen into the water and at the same time produces bicarbonate ions. (wikipedia.org)
  • In darkness, when no photosynthesis occurs, respiration processes release carbon dioxide, and no new bicarbonate ions are produced, resulting in a rapid fall in pH. (wikipedia.org)
  • The flow of bicarbonate ions from rocks weathered by the carbonic acid in rainwater is an important part of the carbon cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • These processes can be triggered by bicarbonate ions and depend on increased production of cAMP (cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate). (sciencemag.org)
  • The mammalian sAC protein is closely related to adenylyl cyclases from cyanobacteria that are also stimulated by bicarbonate ions. (sciencemag.org)
  • The number two outside the parenthesis indicates that the formula contains two ions of bicarbonate for every one ion of zinc. (reference.com)
  • However, other research shows that increasing the amount of sodium bicarbonate that is used in standard prescription dialysis does not benefit people with kidney disease. (webmd.com)
  • Keeping the body's pH levels balanced can be done by improving diet, consuming more fruit and vegetables including dark leafy greens, but it can also be achieved with the ingestion of sodium bicarbonate. (livestrong.com)
  • Hydrilla can use free carbon dioxide from surrounding water when it is available and can switch to bicarbonate utilization when conditions favors its use i.e., high pH and high carbonate concentration(or KH) (Salvucci and Bowes 1983). (actwin.com)
  • Sodium bicarbonate may decrease blood concentration of amphetamines, atazanavir ( Reyataz ), bisacodyl ( Dulcolax ), captopril ( Capoten ), dabigatran (Pradaxa), itraconazole ( Sporanox ) and many other drugs . (medicinenet.com)
  • The concentration of plasma bicarbonate is usually estimated from measured pH and pCO 2 values when blood gas analyzers are utilized. (hindawi.com)
  • However, the application of this equation to the calculation of the bicarbonate concentration in human plasma may be misleading, as the hydration of carbon dioxide in vivo requires the action of isoenzymes of carbonic anhydrase which either are anchored to the plasma membrane of red blood cells or lie inside the erythrocytes. (hindawi.com)
  • Serum PRL concentration was significantly increased 3 min postexercise until the end of the placebo trial, whereas after bicarbonate infusion, serum PRL concentration did not change from values at rest. (nih.gov)
  • The serum pH and bicarbonate concentration should then be redetermined. (rxlist.com)
  • Accordingly, the investigators hypothesized that urinary alkalinization might protect kidney function in patients at increased risk of acute kidney injury undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass needs to be confirmed in an international multicenter, double-blind, randomized controlled trial of intravenous sodium bicarbonate. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The therapeutic treatment of bicarbonate salts can be administered orally, through aerosol, intravenously and through catheter for direct targeting of tumors. (earthlink.net)
  • The same as that of potassium bicarbonate, except that it is much more slowly absorbed from the gastro-intestinal tract, and like all sodium salts it is only feebly depressant. (chestofbooks.com)
  • Further, in the opposition division's decision it was recalled that, according to the appellant's own submissions, the discolouration of sodium bicarbonate salts during sterilization by radioactive radiation was likewise already known at the priority date of the patent in suit. (epo.org)
  • While it was once considered simply an ingredient in baked goods and toothpaste, sodium bicarbonate contains powerful properties that may help you balance your system, regain your wellbeing, and avoid future health problems. (barnesandnoble.com)
  • The medicines below all contain the following active ingredient(s): light kaolin + magnesium carbonate + bicarbonate. (healthdirect.gov.au)
  • All were randomly assigned, in a 2-by-2 factorial design, to receive IV 1.26% sodium bicarbonate or IV 0.9% sodium chloride plus NAC or placebo. (medscape.com)
  • Results at that point showed that 4.4% of those receiving sodium bicarbonate reached the primary end point vs 4.7% of those receiving sodium chloride, and in 4.6% vs 4.5% of the NAC and placebo groups, respectively. (medscape.com)
  • Like magnesium chloride or sulfates are excellent emergency medicines, basic chemicals, nutritional in nature, sodium bicarbonate is a nutritional medicine meaning it cannot and will not end up controlled by CODEX. (earthlink.net)
  • Sodium bicarbonate is a water treatment method used to soften water (removing calcium and magnesium impurities from it) in older water softener systems. (ehow.com)
  • According to a 2009 study published in the 'Journal of the American Society of Nephrology,' patients with advanced chronic kidney disease generally had a slower rate of decline in their kidney function when they took sodium bicarbonate as an add-on to their usual care regimen. (livestrong.com)
