"Updated September 2022

Intravenous (IV) sodium bicarbonate syringes and vials have previously and sporadically been affected by shortages due to manufacturer discontinuation and/or increased demand. SCCM Drug Shortages Task Force has developed a detailed review of common uses of IV sodium bicarbonate in the ICU and suggested management strategies. The recommendations provided are based on a combination of the current evidence as well as the need for conservation during this shortage.

Recommendations and information provided in this Drug Shortage Alert are compiled by experts in the field. Practitioners are advised to consult with their institution’s staff to ensure that response to any drug shortage is in line with internal policies and procedures.
