Ringer's Lactate Solution

Ringer's Lactate Solution

Side effects may include allergic reactions , high blood potassium , volume overload , and high blood calcium . [2] It may not be suitable for mixing with certain medications and some recommend against use in the same infusion as a blood transfusion . [4] Ringer's lactate solution has a lower rate of acidosis as compared with normal saline . [1] [4] Use is generally safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding . [2] Ringer's lactate solution is in the crystalloid family of medication. [5] It is the same tonicity as blood . [2] Ringer's solution was invented in the 1880s with lactate being added in the 1930s. [4] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines , the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system . [6] Lactated Ringer's is available as a generic medication . [1] The wholesale cost in the developing world is about 0.60 to 2.30 USD per liter. [7] For people with poor liver function , Ringer's acetate may be a better alternative with the lactate replaced by acetate . [8] In Scandinavia Ringer's acetate is typically used. [9] Ringer's lactate solution is very often used for fluid resuscitation after a blood loss due to trauma , surgery , or a burn injury .[ citation needed ] Ringer's lactate solution is used because the by-products of lactate metabolism in the liver counteract acidosis , which is a chemical imbalance that occurs with acute fluid loss or renal failure. [10] The IV dose of Ringer's lactate solution is usually calculated by estimated fluid loss and presumed fluid deficit. For fluid resuscitation the usual rate of administration is 20 to 30 ml/kg body weight/hour. RL is not suitable for maintenance therapy (i.e., maintenance fluids) because the sodium content (130 mEq/L) is considered too low, particularly for children, Continue reading >>

Newsletter: D-lactic Acidosis

AddthisShare | Facebook Twitter Pinterest Gmail var addthis_exclude = 'print, email'; D-Lactic Acidosis Craig Petersen RD, CNSC D-lactic acidosis, also referred to as D-lactate encephalopathy, is a rare neurological syndrome that can occur in individuals with short bowel syndrome (SBS) or following jejuno-ileal bypass surgery. A home parenteral or enteral nutrition (HPEN) consumer may develop the neurological symptoms—which can be quite striking—several months to years after the initial diagnosis of a malabsorption disorder. Misdiagnosis of D-lactic acidosis is common, as the neurologic symptoms are sometimes attributed to other causes. With proper diagnosis, D-lactic acidosis can be treated promptly and the symptoms will usually resolve within several hours to a few days. Symptoms Neurological symptoms associated with this syndrome typically present after the ingestion of enteral formula or food high in carbohydrates (either simple or complex) and include altered mental status, slurred speech, confusion, disorientation, difficulty concentrating, memory deficits, excessive sleepiness, weakness, abnormal gait, problems with muscle coordination, and even coma. Individuals with D-lactic acidosis often appear to be inebriated, or drunk, though they may not have consumed alcohol and alcohol is not detected in the blood. Behavior during episodes of D-lactic acidosis can be aggressive, hostile, or abusive. Neurological symptoms are episodic and may last from hours to days. They are accompanied by metabolic acidosis and elevation of plasma D-lactic acid (also referred to as D-lactate) concentration. Cause In D-lactic acidosis, carbohydrate that is not properly absorbed is fermented by an abnormal bacterial flora in the colon. This fermentation produces excessive amounts of Continue reading >>

Ethanol Intoxication And Lactated Ringer's Resuscitation Prolong Hemorrhage-induced Lactic Acidosis

Ethanol Intoxication And Lactated Ringer's Resuscitation Prolong Hemorrhage-induced Lactic Acidosis

The pre-clinical evaluation of hemoglobin (Hb) based oxygen carriers (HBOCs) consists of both proof of concept studies and studies to support safe use in clinical subjects. Certain HBOCs have demonstrated problematic safety profiles in human subjects, particularly in later phases of clinical trials when complicated and/or pre-existing disease states occur together. The mechanisms leading to adverse events in humans are likely related to nitric oxide (NO) interactions with Hb, but may also be associated oxidative toxicity in tissue. While the effects of NO on hypertension and vasculopathy are well established, limited data exist to support the role between Hb and oxidative tissue injury. The primary focus areas of this chapter are to (1) outline existing approaches to proof of concept studies for HBOCs and good laboratory practice (GLP) based studies to establish safe use in humans (2) suggest novel supportive approaches to pre-clinical evaluation using pre-existing disease state animal models and HBOC administration (3) propose novel markers of early tissue injury that may be beneficial in the study of HBOC safety and allow for additional understanding of human subject risk. Mechanisms that limit metabolic acidemia during shock are limited by ethanol (EtOH). This may be due to (1) loss of respiratory compensation, (2) a greater fall in cardiac output, (3) altered removal of plasma lactate by the liver, and (4) alterations in central nervous system orchestration of compensatory responses. We have previously shown that loss of metabolic compensation during hemorrhage is correlated with plasma EtOH concentrations. The present study determines if the mode of ethanol administration influences compensation during hemorrhage. Male guinea pigs were administered EtOH (1 g/kg, 3 Continue reading >>

Materials and Methods: The LRS was administered to the CCl4 steer before CCl4 administration and 2, 7 and 11 days after CCl4 administration. The fatty liver cow and a group of control cows were administered LRS once. The initiation of LRS infusion was designated time-point 0. Venous blood samples were collected periodically from time-point 0-360 min thereafter and parameters related to the acid-base balance were measured. Results: On day 2, blood pH of the CCl4 steer before LRS administration was 7.26 but it gradually increased after the initiation of LRS administration, before ultimately recovering to within the normal reference range. The HCO3 levels decreased transiently just after the administration of LRS on day 7, then rapidly returned normal. Despite the fatty liver cow having severe fat infiltration, there were no substantial differences in parameters related to the blood acid-base balance between the fatty liver cow and the control cows, after LRS administration. Conclusion: Even in a steer suffering from liver damage caused by CCl4 administration, lactate was metabolised in the liver and worked as an alkaliser. Therefore, LRS may be a saf Continue reading >>

Lactated Ringer's Solution

Lactated Ringer's Solution

Christer Svensn, Peter Rodhe, in Pharmacology and Physiology for Anesthesia , 2013 Ringer's solutions are either called lactated or acetated Ringer's solutions, named for a British physiologist, or Hartmann's solution, named for a U.S. pediatrician who in the 1930s added lactate as a buffer to prevent acidosis in septic children.114,116 In the United States and worldwide, mainly lactated Ringer's (LR), or Hartmann's solution as it is called in the United Kingdom, is used (see Table 33-2) as the initial crystalloid for resuscitation and for perioperative maintenance. The buffer ion in acetated Ringer's (AR) is acetate, which is mostly used in Scandinavia. While both ions are metabolized to bicarbonate, acetate is more quickly metabolized.117 Lactate is metabolized in the liver and kidneys while acetate is metabolized in most tissues. Furthermore, lactate requires more oxygen for metabolism and causes a slight increase in plasma glucose, providing a theoretical advantage for the acetated Ringer's solution.118 Ringer's solutions are the fluids of choice for almost every situation. Although they are slightly hypotonic and low caloric, few side effects are observed. All Ringer's solutions are slightly vasodilatory and inflammatory. They distribute from the plasma to the interstitium in approximately 25 to 30 minutes with a distribution half-time of approximately 8 minutes.98 However, this is a static concept of distribution. The fluid load is either readily eliminated or distributed to the interstitium. The volume effect of a crystalloid such as LR could be substantial depending on the effects of anesthesia, surgery, trauma, and hemorrhage.83 However, the concept of calculating volume effects based on hemoglobin dilution (hematocrit dilution) is sometimes challenged by rese Continue reading >>

YUAN and CHARLES E. WADE ABSTRACT To determine the influence of brain trauma on blood acid-base and lactate-pyruvate responses to hemorrhage, and the effect of lactated Ringer's solution on these responses, 30 anesthetized rats were assigned to four groups: hemorrhage {n = 7), hemorrhage following fluid percus- sion brain trauma (trauma-hemorrhage group) (n = 7), hemorrhage treated with lactated Ringer's solution (hemorrhage-resuscitation group) (n = 8), and hemorrhage following brain trauma treated with lactated Ringer's solution (trauma-hemorrhage-resuscitation group) (n = 8). The hemorrhage group showed no significant changes in pH, HC0 3 , and base excess after hemorrhage. Base excess and pH were significantly reduced after the hemorrhage in the trauma-hemorrhage group but were raised after resuscitation in the hemorrhage-resuscita- tion group. Acid-base values showed no difference between the trauma-hemorrhage-resusci- tation and hemorrhage groups. The trauma-hemorrhage-resuscitation group also had a significantly higher base excess than the trauma-hemorrhage group. Lactate rose significantly after hemorrhage in the hemorrhage group and was even higher in the trauma-hemorrhage group, but there were no differences between the hemorrhage versus hemorrhage-resuscita- tion or trauma-hemorrhage-resuscitation groups. Both brain trauma and lactated Ringer's solution increased pyruvate with marked reduction in the ratio of lactate to pyruvate. These data indicate that brain trauma precipitates blood lactate accumulation and metabolic acidosis after hemorrhage, a Continue reading >>

Lactic Acidosis Treatment & Management

Lactic Acidosis Treatment & Management

Approach Considerations Treatment is directed towards correcting the underlying cause of lactic acidosis and optimizing tissue oxygen delivery. The former is addressed by various therapies, including administration of appropriate antibiotics, surgical drainage and debridement of a septic focus, chemotherapy of malignant disorders, discontinuation of causative drugs, and dietary modification in certain types of congenital lactate acidosis. Cardiovascular collapse secondary to hypovolemia or sepsis should be treated with fluid replacement. Both crystalloids and colloids can restore intravascular volume, but hydroxyethyl starch solutions should be avoided owing to increased mortality. [21] Excessive normal saline administration can cause a nongap metabolic acidosis due to hyperchloremia, which has been associated with increased acute kidney injury. [32] Balanced salt solutions such as Ringer lactate and Plasma-Lyte will not cause a nongap metabolic acidosis and may reduce the need for renal replacement therapy; however, these can cause a metabolic alkalosis. [33] No randomized, controlled trial has yet established the safest and most effective crystalloid. If a colloid is indicated, albumin should be used. Despite appropriate fluid management, vasopressors or inotropes may still be required to augment oxygen delivery. Acidemia decreases the response to catecholamines, and higher doses may be needed. Conversely, high doses may exacerbate ischemia in critical tissue beds. Careful dose titration is needed to maximize benefit and reduce harm. Lactic acidosis causes a compensatory increase in minute ventilation. Patients may be tachypneic initially, but respiratory muscle fatigue can ensue rapidly and mechanical ventilation may be necessary. Alkali therapy remains controversial Continue reading >>

L-lactate And D-lactate - Clinical Significance Of The Difference

L-lactate And D-lactate - Clinical Significance Of The Difference

L-lactate and D-lactate - clinical significance of the difference L-lactate and D-lactate - clinical significance of the difference Modern blood gas analyzers often have incorporated sensor technology that allows measurement of plasma lactate concentration. In nature lactate exists in two isoforms: L-lactate and D-lactate. In all vertebrates, including humans, the L-lactate form is by far the most abundant and pathophysiologically significant, and it is this form that is specifically measured by the lactate sensors in blood gas analyzers and indeed all routine methods used to measure lactate in the clinical laboratory. The main focus of this brief review is physiological and pathological aspects that distinguish L-lactate and D-lactate. Consideration will be given to the very rare instance when measurement of blood D-lactate is clinically useful and just why the lactate sensor in blood gas analyzers is not useful in such rare circumstance. Lactate, the anion that results from dissociation of lactic acid, is an intracellular metabolite of glucose; specifically it is the end product of anaerobic glycolysis, the final step of which is conversion of pyruvate to lactate by the enzyme lactate dehydrogenase. In health around 1500 mmol of lactate is produced daily and so long as normal rate of metabolic disposal - principally by the liver and kidneys - is maintained, blood plasma concentration remains within the approximate reference range of 0.5-1.5 mmol/L [1]. Abnormal increase in plasma lactate (called hyperlactatemia) occurs if the rate of production exceeds the rate of disposal. If hyperlactatemia is sufficiently severe (plasma lactate >5.0 mmol/L), it is associated with acidosis (blood pH <7.35). The condition is then called lactic acidosis. There are many causes of hype Continue reading >>

Lactic Acid - Drugbank

Lactic Acid - Drugbank

A normal intermediate in the fermentation (oxidation, metabolism) of sugar. The concentrated form is used internally to prevent gastrointestinal fermentation. (From Stedman, 26th ed) Sodium lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid, and has a mild saline taste. It is produced by fermentation of a sugar source, such as corn or beets, and then, by neutralizing the resulting lactic acid to create a compound having the formula NaC3H5O3.

In Sepsis, Fluid Choice Matters

In Sepsis, Fluid Choice Matters

You are at: Home Research In Sepsis, Fluid Choice Matters During a large-volume sepsis resuscitation, your choice of fluids specially which crystalloid solution could mean the difference between life, death and dialysis Included in the emergency physicians skill set is their ability to resuscitate critically ill patients; an example of this is the emergency department care of the septic patient. Given the general delay in translating medical knowledge to the bedside, its remarkable to see the vast change in the management of these patients since Dr. Rivers published his ground-breaking paper [ 1 ]. In a relatively short period of time, weve made aggressive fluid resuscitation and early antibiotics the standard of care and now focus our attention on improving other aspects of the resuscitation. Recent literature has studied goal MAP requirements [ 2 ], endpoints such as lactate clearance vs ScvO2 [ 3 ], and how best to evaluate volume responsiveness (IVC measurement [ 4 ], passive leg raise [ 5 ], carotid velocity time integral [ 6 ]). One element that has received far less attention is the type of fluid that is administered during the resuscitation. As it turns out, the type of fluid you choose does matter; it may be the difference between your patient requiring dialysis or even dying. Specifically, which crystalloid solution should be your fluid of choice in patients requiring large-volume resuscitations, such as those with sepsis or diabetic ketoacidosis? There are different types of crystalloid fluids. Crystalloids such as lactated ringers (LR) or PlasmaLyte are considered balanced fluids, while chloride-rich fluids such as normal saline (NS) are not. Colloids including albumin and starches are not considered in this discussion. What makes some fluids balanced and o Continue reading >>

In this study, Acetated Ringer (AR) and Lactated Ringer (LR) were used as intraoperative infusions in patients with liver cirrhosis during elective surgery under general anaesthesia. Their effect on acid- base balance, serum pyruvate, serum lactate, ketone bodies concentration, liver function, blood glucose level and haemodynamic parameters were Thirty patients (grade A, Child-Pugh classification) were divided into two groups according to the type of the infused solution; LR or AR. Postoperative Pyruvate level in AR (1.210.39 mg/dl) was significantly higher than in LR group (0.470.11 mg/dl). However, the level of lactate in LR group postoperatively (16.801.61 mg/dl) increased significantly in comparison to that in AR group (8.870.92 mg/dl). The ketone bodies concentration was significantly higher in AR group (2.330.42 mg/dl) than in LR group (0.400.20 mg/dl). There was no significant changes in pH, HCO3 ,base excess, liver function, blood glucose level and haemodynamic parameters in both groups either intraoperatively or at the end of the infusion. These results suggest that AR may be more beneficial as an intraoperative fluid than LR.

Despite the fatty liver cow having severe fat infiltration, there were no substantial differences in parameters related to the blood acid-base balance between the fatty liver cow and the control cows, after LRS administration. Conclusion: Even in a steer suffering from liver damage caused by CCl4 administration, lactate was metabolised in the liver and worked as an alkaliser. Therefore, LRS may be a safe extracellular replacement solution when administered at the recommended flow rate and dose (20 mL kg1 h1 and 30 mL kg1, respectively) to dairy cows in clinics.
