Background/aim: Calculation of the chloride: sodium (Cl-: Na+) ratio is proposed to enable a quick evaluation of the effect of Cl- and Na+ on the acid-base balance in critically ill patients. In the present study, the relationship of the Cl-: Na+ ratio of septic patients with acid-base status and ICU mortality were investigated.
