The Prognostic Value of Lactate is Different Among Septic Patients With or Without Diabetes Mellitus

2019-11-11 17:49:41 | BioPortfolio


Sepsis is defined as life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. Early diagnosis of sepsis and identification of more severe sepsis is important to improve the outcomes .Therefore, reliable markers are required to early identify the high-risk patients.

Currently, lactate is widely applied as the marker for evaluating the severity of sepsis and for outcome predicting.Nevertheless, the value of lactate for predicting sepsis is still controversial.The reasons for the different cutoff value may be due to the fact that sepsis is a heterogeneous disease which has already been defined by a number of clinical, laboratory and radiologic criteria, rather than specific pathologic findings. Therefore, we hypothesized that the discrepancy clinical value of lactate may be resulted from the heterogeneous feature of sepsis.

DM affects lactate balance and raised baseline lactate. The objective of this study was to compare the different prognostic value of admission lactate for sepsis patients with or without DM.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).

Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.
