reserve, alkaline,
n (alkali reserve), 1. the amount of buffer compounds (e.g., sodium bicarbonate, dipotassium phosphate, proteins) in the blood capable of neutralizing acids; one of the buffer systems of the blood that can neutralize the acid valences formed in the body. It is made up of the base of weak acid salts and is usually measured by determining the bicarbonate concentration of the plasma.
n 2. the concentration of bicarbonate ions (HCO3) in the blood. These ions serve as a reserve in that they may be displaced by anions (e.g., Cl, SO4−2, PO4−3). Displacement of bicarbonate ions occurs mainly by means of the chloride shift. The role of the buffer system is such that a large influx of acid or base ions from either metabolic function or ingestion can be neutralized by the alkaline reserves from the mineral and protein salts in the blood and tissue fluids. A strong acid is transformed into a weak base. Consequently, the pH level of the blood fluctuates very little, and the tissue cells are constantly bathed in a continuously buffered solution.
reserve, cardiac,
n the reserve strength or pumping ability of the heart, which may be called on in an emergency.

The problem with basing your reserve fund forecast on a shorter analysis period is that, for a new building, the lifecycle costs are minimal in the first 10 years, and only start to increase from around year 15 onwards.
Where no reserve fund is in place, the full value of the asset replacement costs will need to be recovered at the time when the assets need replacing.
Therefore, the implementation of a proper reserve fund is in the interests of all users to ensure provision for the costs of replacing a building's diminishing assets.
Sponsors must provide a reserve fund in an amount no less than three percent of the total price of all of the units offered for sale, specifically, "[t]he sum of the cost of all units in the offering at the last price which was offered to tenants in occupancy prior to the effective date of the plan regardless of number of sales made.
The second part of the calculation is more complicated, which makes it possible for a sponsor to use artificially lowered offering prices to reduce its reserve fund obligations, without the condominium board or unit owners ever realizing that a deception is taking place.
