87 Variables Influencing the Level of Plasma Lactate

Abstract

It has been suggested that plasma lactate (L) as an indicator of hypoxemia may identify serious anaemia requiring transfusion. One might expect anaemia to exacerbate the effect of hypoxemia with increased L resulting. The influence of haemoglobin (Hb) (range:3.2-9.6 g/100ml), glucose, weight, PaO2 and blood pressure on L (range:2.4-9.3 mmol/l) was studied… (More)
