Base excess blood, cBase(B), was introduced in the late 1950s by Ole Siggaard-Andersen to quantify the non-respiratory component in acid-base imbalance. Schwarz and coworkers in Boston argued that cBase(B) was not independent of pCO2 in vivo. Siggaard-Andersen introduced later the modified base excess, cBase(ecf), which has also been called standard base excess. Twenty years ago, on the 5th Meeting of the IFCC Expert Panel on pH and Blood Gases in Copenhagen, I showed that AVL, Corning (now… CONTINUE READING
