Experimental high-volume hemofiltration with predilutional tris-hydroxymethylaminomethane for correction of low tidal volume ventilation-induced acidosis.

Abstract

The most common method of controlling acidemia during lung-protective ventilation is CO₂ removal with an extracorporeal lung assist (ECLA) system. Another possibility to prevent acidemia is based on intravenous (i.v.) application of tris-hydroxymethyl-aminomethane (3 mol/L, THAM) buffer, which can bind hydrogen protons and which can be removed from the body… (More)
