Abstract:

Arterial blood lactate concentration at the end of hemorrhage was evaluated as a predictor of survival following fixed volume hemorrhage in unmedicated chronically instrumented immature swine. Following hemorrhage lactate was elevated compared to basal values. Animals lived n71 with a lactate of 43.9 or - 37.1mgdl compared to 106.5 or - 40.4 mgdl for animals that died n66. Lactate concentration at the end of hemorrhage successfully predicted survival 80.3. Keywords blood loss shock.
