Table 4. Balance of Bicarbonate and Chloride for the Extracellular Volume (ECV)

For calculation of predicted and calculated values, mean values in tables 1 and 3were used; for calculation of the different variables, see Methods equations 3–12.

HES = hydroxyethyl starch; HA = albumin; ANH = acute normovolemic hemodilution; [Bic]= standard bicarbonate concentration; [Cl^{−}]= chloride concentration.
