When assessing the acid-base status in patients on dialysis, it must be taken into account that the physiological response to respiratory disorders is abnormal, especially in anuric patients; therefore, serum bicarbonate levels depend on the HC[O.sub.3] provided by dialysate bath; this implies a need for adjusting the HCO3 concentration in the dialysate bath based on associated respiratory disorders in order to avoid detrimental effects caused by the therapy (e.g., cardiac arrhythmias in patients with respiratory alkalosis who receive high loads of bicarbonate with the dialysate bath in order to achieve a goal of serum HC[O.sub.3] greater than 22mmol/L).
