When should you use HCO3 therapy?

You should alkalinize the urine when you face:

  • Barbiturates toxicity
  • Salicylates toxicity
  • Rhabdomyolysis
And you use HCO3 for Treatment of Tricyclic antidepressants toxicity, BUT not for alkalinization, it's for saturating Na channels with NaHCO3 :rolleyes:
