Sodium Bicarbonate Injection

Sodium Bicarbonate Injection is a medication used for various purposes. Let’s explore its details:

  • Description: Sodium bicarbonate injection is an alkalizer. It works by increasing the pH of blood and urine, thereby correcting metabolic acidosis (high acid levels in the body). Additionally, it speeds up the removal of toxic substances from the body in certain types of poisoning1.

  • Uses:

    • Metabolic Acidosis: Sodium bicarbonate injection is typically used to lower the amount of acid in the blood when the acid level is too high. This can occur due to conditions such as kidney problems, uncontrolled diabetes, or heart conditions.
    • Severe Diarrhea: It can help restore bicarbonate levels in the body if a person experiences severe diarrhea.
    • Acidity: Sodium bicarbonate is used as an antacid to relieve acid indigestion, heartburn, and gas when taken orally.
    • Poisoning: In cases of certain poisonings, it aids in removing toxic substances from the body23.
  • Common Side Effects:

    • Flatulence
    • Abdominal pain
