Bicarbonate preparation for inhalation

Dear expert team,

Is there a ready-to-use preparation for inhalation with bicarbonate on the market? [The question was originally asked on the German platform of the expert advice] I would like to inhale it with a jet nebuliser.

If there is no such preparation on the market can I just add a little bit of sodium bicarbonate from the drugstore to a 0,9% NaCl ampulla? And if yes, how much do I have to add?

My intention is to increase the Ph value in the airways.

Many thanks for your answers!


It is not possible in a risc-free way to dissolve any substance and then to inhale it. The reaction of our airways can become drastic. Please never do that!

Best regards,
