Bicarbonate buffering system
The Bicarbonate buffering system is the most important buffer solution for maintaining a relatively constant pH in the plasma.
It functions via blood buffering with bicarbonate. The enzyme carbonic anhydrase maintains the equilibrium between bicarbonate and H2CO3. This is, in turn, converted into carbon dioxide and water.
