Association Between Serum Lactate During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Survival in Adult Out-Of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: A Multicenter Cohort Study (The Critical Study in Osaka, Japan)
Norihiro Nishioka | Daisuke Kobayashi, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan
- RESULTS: The Critical Study examines the role of serum lactate as a prognostic survival marker after OHCA. Higher serum lactate levels with a non-shockable rhythm before return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) was associated with worse 1-month survival, suggesting a possible role for serum lactate as prognosis marker in OHCA in non-shockable rhythm.
