Slide1:  Will the real please step forward? Dr. Andrew Ferguson MEd FRCA DIBICM FCCP Attending Intensivist Dogma….:  Dogma…. A concept or principle accepted as absolute truth on the basis of unquestioned acceptance of an authority's statement to that effect rather than on the basis of logical reasoning or demonstrated proof A blind belief in things often without a material base Slide3:  Useless end-product or essential fuel? The traditional view…:  The traditional view… “ current thinking continues to interpret hyperlactacidemia as hypoxia and to support stimulation of cardiac output and enhancement of oxygen delivery as therapy” James JH, Luchette FA, McCarter F, Fischer JE. Lactate is an unreliable indicator of tissue hypoxia in injury or sepsis. Lancet 1999; 354: 505-508 So doesn’t that mean that…?:  So doesn’t that mean that…? Hyperlactataemia (> 2mmol/L):  Hyperlactataemia (> 2mmol/L) Basal lactate production:  Basal lactate production Total = 1290 mmol / 24 hours for 70 kg How is lactate produced?:  How is lactate produced? If pyruvate production > oxidation in CAC then lactate formation increases PDH SO… Anything that increases glycolysis can increase lactataemia once pyruvate oxidation is overwhelmed NOT just anaerobic metabolism!:  SO… Anything that increases glycolysis can increase lactataemia once pyruvate oxidation is overwhelmed NOT just anaerobic metabolism! In the anaerobic state…:  In the anaerobic state… Another way to look at it…:  Another way to look at it… Schurr A. Lactate: the ultimate cerebral oxidative energy substrate? Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism 2006; 26: 142-152 Lactate/pyruvate ratio:  Lactate/pyruvate ratio Lactate/pyruvate = K x (NADH/NAD) x H+ When lactate hypoperfusion:  When lactate hypoperfusion When lactate hypoperfusion:  When lactate hypoperfusion Epinephrine and lactate production:  Epinephrine and lactate production Slide16:  Muscle tissue central to this 40% of total cell mass of body b2 receptors 99% of muscle adrenergic receptors In stress and resuscitated sepsis: Adrenaline activates glycolysis producing ATP Adrenaline activates Na/K-ATPase using ATP Increased glycolysis increases lactate Lactate not produced if Na/K-ATPase blocked Independent of tissue hypoxia Lactate overproduction blocked by b2 blockade Epinephrine and lactate production Slide17:  Reduced lactate clearance Conflicting data depending on technique and initial lactate Possibly contributes to mild hyperlactataemia Unlikely to play major role in cases where production is near normal Pyruvate dehydrogenase dysfunction PDH shifts pyruvate to Kreb’s cycle not to lactate Sub-normal levels in muscle in sepsis Function restored by dichloroacetate which also reduces lactate level Protein catabolism AA’s converted to pyruvate then lactate Inhibition of mitochondrial respiration Sepsis, drugs e.g. metformin (rare), cyanide, antiretrovirals When lactate hypoperfusion Lactate Metabolism:  Lactate Metabolism LIVER 60% KIDNEYS 30% Excretion renal threshold = 5-6 mmol/L MUSCLE 10% What happens to the lactate?:  What happens to the lactate? Gluconeogenesis 20% – Cori cycle in liver 2 CH3 CHOH COO- + 2H+ = C6H12O6 Glucose production uses 6 ATP from b oxidation of fatty acids LACTATE SHUTTLE: aerobic lactate used to move carbons for oxidation/gluconeogenesis at critical time Hyperlactataemia = adaptive response Lactate is a “stress fuel” used by heart and brain Reduced lactate in heart reduces cardiac function in shock Oxidation 80% CH3 CHOH COO- + H+ + 3 O2 = 3 CO2 + 3 H2O Classification of lactic acidosis:  Classification of lactic acidosis Prognostic value:  Prognostic value Source doesn’t matter High lactate still a marker of severe physiological stress and risk of death High lactate often not hypoxia related but represents metabolic changes of severe stress So what do we do about it?:  So what do we do about it? Look for evidence of malperfusion If present augment CO & O2 delivery BUT don’t do this just for the lactate level TREAT the malperfusion not the lactate Consider the other reasons for high lactate Lactate is the messenger…don’t shoot it!
