Traditional theories of acid-base balance are based on the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation to calculate proton concentration. The recent revival of quantitative acid-base physiology using the Stewart model has increased our understanding of complicated acid-base disorders, but has also led to several new controversies. With the help of three patient histories, we show that the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation should be regarded as a simplified version of the more general Stewart model and not as something completely different. Therefore, both models may be useful at the bedside.
