dc.description.abstractAbstract published with permission. Background: Lactate has been identified as a useful marker of shock. Lactate can be measured in the pre-hospital environment rapidly and accurately. Method: A comprehensive literature search was conducted using a targeted search strategy. Additional literature was located through reference list searching and prior awareness by the authors. This identified a number of papers which were appraised for relevance. This appraisal identified 29 papers which were included in the review. Conclusion: Lactate has been shown to be measurable in the pre-hospital environment and to be prognostic of mortality. Lactate measurement needs to be linked to specific treatment algorithms with improved outcomes for patients in order to justify inclusion in pre-hospital practice.
