Merten et al. NaHCO3 and contrast nephropathy. JAMA 2004

Created: 22/5/2007
Updated: 22/5/2007
 

Paper type

Randomised controlled trial

Reference

Merten GJ,  Burgess WP, Gray LV et al.
Prevention of contrast-induced nephropathy with sodium bicarbonate: a randomized controlled trial.
JAMA 2004 291; (19):2328-34

Major Finding

Hydration with sodium bicarbonate before contrast exposure is more effective than hydration with sodium chloride for prophylaxis of contrast-induced renal nephropathy.

Point for discussion:

But should we prescribe sodium bicarbonate, n-acetyl cysteine or sodium bicarbonate AND n-acetyl cysteine?
