Request to Complete Bicarbonate Survey

Metabolic acidosis is common in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and is associated with serious complications and mortality. Guidelines recommend serum bicarbonate levels measurement and oral supplementation if needed in CKD patients; However it seems that practices are varying across different countries.

We are performing a survey in Europe and nearby countries to evaluate if and how often practitioners are measuring bicarbonate levels in CKD patients and if they use oral bicarbonate supplementation to correct metabolic acidosis.

All members can complete the questionnaire by clicking here. It is ANONYMOUS and will not take more than 2-3 minutes!
