, chemical compound containing the carbonate radical or ion, CO3−2. Most familiar carbonates are salts that are formed by reacting an inorganic base (e.g., a metal hydroxide) with carbonic acid.

Results revealed that some parameters show slight positive correlations: TDS-EC, HCO3- -EC, HCO3- -TDS, NO 3 2- -HCO 3 -, PO 4 2- -SO 4 2- K 2+ -PO 4 2- while, significant positive correlation was shown by Cl--EC (r = 0.
Alkalemia => PaCO2 is low but HCO3- is in normal range => Uncompensated Respiratory Alkalosis Advanced Assessment.
Blood analysis: Results of present study revealed that blood pH and concentrations of HCO3- linearly increased by increasing the DCAD levels of experimental diets and maximum values were observed at DCAD level of 20.
The decrease in HCO3- was compensated by increase in chloride levels, as out of 110 patients, 83(75.
Since, tap water contains HCO3- (218 ppm, Table-4) which is the complexing agent and also part of the uranium was already in oxidized form in the sample used (12 % U+6) so this much amount (~ 40%) was leached by tap water only.
Bicarbonate (HCO3-): According to Table 2, HCO3- in second and third depth had a negative effect on plant physiologic parameters.
The blood carries O2 and CO2 to and from the tissue, but the Bb barrier is impermeable to the H+ and HCO3-.
DISCUSSION: The renal acid-base homeostasis may be broadly divided into two processes: (1) reabsorption of filtered HCO3-, which occurs fundamentally in the proximal convoluted tubule; and (2) excretion of fixed acids through the titration of urinary buffers and the excretion of ammonium, which takes place primarily in the distal nephron.
When the temperature of a blood sample changes in a closed system the pH, PCO2, and PO2 will change, but the SO2, O2 Content, CO2 Content, and HCO3- will not change.
