Figure 1: The total dose of NaHCO3 administered in relation to the maximum postoperative serum sodium concentration among patients undergoing thoracic aortic operations with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (n = 87). The total dose of NaHCO3 correlated significantly with the maximum postoperative serum sodium concentrations (r = 0.29, P = 0.004). NaHCO3: Sodium bicarbonate
