El Nivel de Lactato a la Llegada a Urgencias como Predictor de la Mortalidad Hospitalaria en la Fascitis Necrotizante: un Estudio Retrospectivo

Blood Lactate Levels upon Emergency Department Arrival are Significantly Associated with Mortality in Necrotizing Fasciitis Patients

In necrotizing fasciitis patients, hyperlactatemia on Emergency Department arrival is independently predictive of in-hospital mortality. Necrotizing fasciitis is a very serious skin infection which involves rapidly spreading inflammation and extensive necrosis of the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and superficial fascia.

Early lactate clearance-guided therapy is more effective than ScvO2-oriented therapy in Sepsis

This study, carried out by Pan et al. and published in January 2019 by Medicine, involves a meta-analysis of different articles published between 1976 and February 2018, which aims to evaluate the effect of early therapy guided by lactate clearance as a potentially more effective resuscitation objective. Recent studies suggest that lactate normalisation during resuscitation […]
