If the side-effects of alkalinisation
are seemingly benign, the same cannot be said of cobalt, a more recent plague that is considered a serious threat to horse welfare.
It has been shown in some studies that the alkalinisation
of local anaesthetic with NaHC[O.
Subject to the soil characteristics and humidity, heavy metals can cause acidification or alkalinisation
of soil and cause diseases and intoxication of various live organisms.
of the urine needs to start at least 48 hours before the PVS session.
14) Although not widely used, the added benefit of dual energy CT can significantly affect the therapeutic options as a trial of urinary alkalinisation
is warranted if the calculus is composed of uric acid.
Increased BWC (Brain Water Content) was observed only in DKA mice that received combined insulin and bicarbonate therapy, suggesting that rapid systemic alkalinisation
in the presence of insulin may contribute to DKA-CE.
Other approaches like alkalinisation
of blood plasma/serum and use of weak inhibitors against strong inhibitors, though it showed promising results, did not get such wide attention.
During the process of alkalinisation
, both harmful (aluminium, manganese, cadmium, lead) and useful (barium, phosphorus, copper, cobalt) for plants elements become active.
She was treated by intravenous hydration and urine alkalinisation
High levels of uric acid in urine can cause obstruction of the urinary tract by uric acid crystals, a problem that could be avoided by the alkalinisation
of the urine and the highest liquid ingestion (Smith, 1981).
The management of rhabdomyolysis involves aggressive hydration, forced diuresis, alkalinisation
of urine and haemofiltration if required .
5) Scherr (1998) classifies these to include: crusting, compaction, sealing, wind erosion, water erosion, devegetation, over-tillage, impeded drainage, waterlogging, reduced waterholding capacity, reduced infiltration, salinisation, alkalinisation
, acidification, nutrient leaching, removal of organic matter, burning of vegetative residues, nutrient depletion, over-application of agroehemicals, industrial contamination, decline in vegetative cover, decline in biodiversity, decline in species composition, decline in availability of valued species.
