Blood lactate concentrations in Göttingen minipigs

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearch

Blood lactate concentration is a useful monitoring parameter in both human and veterinary anaesthesiology. As an intermediate metabolite, elevated concentrations are associated with hypoxia and poor outcome after surgery. In a newly published study (J Am Ass Lab Anim Sci 2016, 55(1): 1-3) we compared blood lactate concentrations in Göttingen minipigs with domestic pigs. We also evaluated effects of body weight, type of anaesthesia and surgery. We found that reference values for blood lactate concentration should reflect the breed of interest.
