  2. 2. DiagnosisDiagnosis • Normal plasma lactate: 0.5 to 1.5 meq/L. • Lactic acidosis: • plasma lactate concentration exceeds 4 to 5meq/L, even among patients without a systemic acidosis
  3. 3. Lactate metabolism in tissueLactate metabolism in tissue • The body tissues produce ~ 1500The body tissues produce ~ 1500 mmol of lactate each day (mmol of lactate each day (15 to 3015 to 30 mmol/kg per day)mmol/kg per day) • Metabolized mainly by the liver (Metabolized mainly by the liver (CoriCori cyclecycle)) • All tissues can produce lactate underAll tissues can produce lactate under anaerobic conditionsanaerobic conditions

  24. 24. Treatment of lactic acidosisTreatment of lactic acidosis 1. Treatment underlying disease1. Treatment underlying disease 2. Sodium bicarbonate:2. Sodium bicarbonate: may worsenmay worsen oxygen delivery, increase lactate productionoxygen delivery, increase lactate production (especially when hypoxia=>induce glycolysis),(especially when hypoxia=>induce glycolysis), decrease portal vein flowdecrease portal vein flow •The surviving sepsis campaign recommendedThe surviving sepsis campaign recommended holdhold sodium bicarbonate unlesssodium bicarbonate unless profound lactic acidosis and acidemia (arterial pH less than 7.1 and serum bicarbonate 6 meq/L or less). 3. Hemodialysis / CRRT3. Hemodialysis / CRRT
  25. 25. Potential harms of bicarbonate • Increased arterial and tissue capillary PCO2 • Acceleration of lactate generation • Reduced ionized calcium • Hypernatremia • Extracellular fluid (ECF) volume expansion
  26. 26. Alternatives to bicarbonate therapy • Tromethamine (tris-hydroxymethyl aminomethane; also called THAM, TRIS, and trometamol) • Carbicarb • Dichloroacetate (DCA) • None of these alternative agents have shown benefit in patients with lactic acidosis
  27. 27. Hemodialysis • Dialysis may be a useful mode of therapy when severe lactic acidosis exists in conjunction with renal failure or congestive heart failure. • Dialysis would allow bicarbonate infusion without precipitating or worsening fluid overload. Therefore, dialysis would correct acidosis by restoring the buffer pool. Guo PY, Storsley LJ, Finkle SN. Severe lactic acidosis treated with prolonged hemodialysis: recovery after massive overdoses of metformin. Semin Dial. 2006;19(1):80-3.
  28. 28. HemodialysisHemodialysis • Hemodialysis or continuous hemofiltration used in conjunction with alkali infusion may be tolerated in a patient with cardiovascular instability. • However, the overall benefit of such therapy to a patient's outcome is not known. Metformin-induced lactic acidosis has been reported to improve after prolonged hemodialysis. Guo PY, Storsley LJ, Finkle SN. Severe lactic acidosis treated with prolonged hemodialysis: recovery after massive overdoses of metformin. Semin Dial. 2006;19(1):80-3.
