Anion Gap Calculator

The anion gap is used to distinguish between causes of metabolic acidosis. It is a measure of the unmeasured anions in serum. The gap-gap ratio is the difference between the change in anion gap and the change in bicarbonate, and is used to identify a normal anion gap metabolic acidosis or a coexisting metabolic alkalosis in the presence of a high-anion gap metabolic acidosis.
