What are Na and Cl used for in the calculation?

Acid Plus uses Na and Cl to calculate the anion gap to determine if a high anion gap metabolic acidosis is present.

Should I use bicarbonate(HCO₃) from the ABG or CO₂ from metabolic panel?

We recommend using the CO₂ from the metabolic panel since this is a directly measured value; the bicarbonate(HCO₃) on ABG is calculated instead of being directly measured.
