Intracellular Acid-Base and Energy Metabolism in Oliguric Acute Renal Failure (OARF)
Acute renal failure is often associated with a condition of metabolic acidosis. However, extracellular acid-base parameters do not seem to be fully representative of the entity of retained acids, since it is the intracellular compartment which is mainly involved in buffering of the acid load (1–2).
