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

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 […]
