When should you start sodium bicarbonate in CKD patients? Mnemonic

When should you start sodium bicarbonate in CKD patients?

The Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines recommend treatment of metabolic acidosis with alkali therapy in patients with chronic kidney disease when the serum bicarbonate is chronically <22 mEq/L (22 mmol/L).

How do you remember this?

BIcarbonate has BI which is 2 - so 22!

That's all!
