Close correlation between arterial and central venous lactate concentrations of children in shock: A cross-sectional study.


BACKGROUND Arterial lactate (aLact) has been widely used to guide therapeutic decisions in children with shock. We evaluated the feasibility of central venous lactate (cvLact) in assessing aLact among children with shock. METHODS Pairs of arterial and central venous samples for lactate concentrations were collected simultaneously during the shock and… (More)
