A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF PERITONITIS ASSOCIATED HYPERLACTAMIA FOR EVALUATING MORTALITY IN SECONDARY PERITONITIS
Lactate levels are normally maintained at less than 1.5 mmol/L using a delicate balance between production and clearance (by liver and kidneys). Hyperlactemia has shown correlation with higher mortality. In our study on 30 indoor patients of perforation peritonitis in SMS medical college, Jaipur – we found that higher lactate level (> 4) is associated with higher ventilator need (80%) and hence higher mortality (60%).
