Noonan, BC. Intragame blood-lactate values during ice hockey and their relationships to commonly used hockey testing protocols. J Strength Cond Res 24(X): 000-000, 2010-This study evaluated the on ice blood-lactate values during a division 1 ice hockey game in an attempt to demonstrate the highly variable nature of the game. Our hypothesis was that intragame blood-lactate (BLa) values would be highly variable and related to shift length. Six men (age = 20.4 + 1.8 years, body mass 81.3 +8.7 kg) agreed to have fingerstick BLa samples taken at the completion of selected shifts (n = 35 samples) during the first and third periods of a division 1 ice hockey game. Shift length including work and rest intervals were also recorded for each of these shifts. Blood-lactate values ranged from 4.4 to 13.7 mmol.L with a mean value of 8.15 (+2.72) mmol.L. Shift length ranged from 55 to 145 seconds with individual work intervals within the shifts ranging from 29 to 102 seconds in length. Most shifts had either 1 or no play stoppages and rest to work intervals ranged from 0-1.66 (+0.53). These results further support the intense and variable nature of ice hockey and should help coaches develop more specific training and testing regimens to prepare for these demands. They also highlight the need for a validated and reliable test of repeated sprint ability for ice hockey players.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A game in which two parties of players provided with curved or hooked sticks seek to drive a ball or puck through opposite goals. This applies to either ice hockey or field hockey.
L-lactate Dehydrogenase (cytochrome)
A cytochrome form of lactate dehydrogenase found in the MITOCHONDRIA. It catalyzes the oxidation of L-lactate to PYRUVATE with transfer of electrons to CYTOCHROME C. The enzyme utilizes FMN and PROTOHEME IX as cofactors.
A tetrameric enzyme that, along with the coenzyme NAD+, catalyzes the interconversion of LACTATE and PYRUVATE. In vertebrates, genes for three different subunits (LDH-A, LDH-B and LDH-C) exist.
The complete summaries of the frequencies of the values or categories of a measurement made on a group of items, a population, or other collection of data. The distribution tells either how many or what proportion of the group was found to have each value (or each range of values) out of all the possible values that the quantitative measure can have.
Lactate Dehydrogenase-elevating Virus
A species ARTERIVIRUS, occurring in a number of transplantable mouse tumors. Infected mice have permanently elevated serum levels of lactate dehydrogenase.
The influence of blood lactate on brainstem excitability was tested by using the blink reflex (BR) recovery cycle on 18 sprinters. Blood lactate was measured before maximal cycling, at the end, as wel...
Current understanding of lactate metabolism in fish is based almost entirely on the interpretation of concentration measurements that cannot be used to infer changes in flux. The goals of this investi...
Objective. To evaluate the rate of discrepancy between pH and lactate values in fetal blood sampling (FBS). To evaluate differences in obstetric management in response to combined tests (pH and lactat...

Studies in humans use blood lactate to determine the degree of the exercise intensity, suggesting that exercise with elevated blood lactate concentrations results in increased BDNF plasma concentratio...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether laboratory storage of samples affects the amount of lactate over 3 years. Lactate is a natural substance normally present in the body. La...
