Blood lactate is a parameter used for monitoring pigs during prolonged anesthesia. Here we compared blood lactate and glucose concentrations in nine anaesthetised laboratory pigs. Seventeen of the samples originated from a liver project and 15 from a kidney project. Mean and standard deviations of arterial blood lactate and glucose were calculated and compared with portal, renal and femoral veins with paired student's t-tests, paired Wilcoxon test as well as Spearman rank-order correlation. The study showed that in practice lactate is constant whether measured in blood from the femoral artery, portal vein, renal vein or femoral vein. The study showed that the origin of the blood tested is inferior and that the biochemical changes in blood lactate are reflected throughout the cardiovascular system in healthy pigs.
