Answer

Alkalinizing agents

Alkalinizing agents are indicated for severe acidosis and rhabdomyolysis.

Sodium bicarbonate (Neut)

Sodium bicarbonate is useful in alkalization of the urine to prevent acute myoglobinuric renal failure. It may be administered as a bolus injection or as an infusion. The ideal solution to which sodium bicarbonate is added should be hypotonic.
