Lactate Level and Gastrointestinal Bleeding

2019-10-01 07:55:06 | BioPortfolio


Acute gastrointestinal bleeding is a common emergency with significant morbidity, mortality, and cost. Appropriate risk stratification of patients presenting with acute gastrointestinal bleeding aids in the triage of patients to determine need for hospital admission and the need for emergency endoscopic intervention. Increased blood lactate levels are common in critically ill patients. Our study will evaluate the usefulness of lactate measurements on resources utilisation ( intensive care unit admission, length of hospital stay) and other patient-oriented outcomes ( need for transfusion and endoscopy) in patients with acute gastrointestinal bleeding.
