Abstract

To examine whether the strong ion gap (SIG) or standard base excess corrected for abnormalities of serum chloride and albumin (BE(UA)) can predict outcome and to compare the prognostic abilities of these variables with standard base excess (SBE), anion gap (AG), pH, and lactate, the more traditional markers of acid-base disturbance.
