Background: Metabolic acidosis is a fatal finding in trauma patients that complicates the process of resuscitation.
Case: The case was a 37-year-old man with open fracture in both legs and fracture in second lumbar vertebral (L2). The serial arterial blood gas (ABG) test results showed a pH value of 6.7 indicating a very severe and special case of metabolic acidosis. The rate of mortality for such a case was very high. The patient was treated with sodium bicarbonate and successfully revived after four hours post treatment and metabolic acidosis was resolved.
Conclusion: This indicated that bicarbonate administration is useful for very severe cases. The good condition of the patient after survival from the severe academia allowed for extubation.
Keywords: Metabolic Acidosis, Resuscitation, Trauma Patients.
