Lactic acid level as an outcome predictor in pediatric patients with intussusception in the emergency department [post]

2020 unpublished
Intussusception decreases blood flow to the bowel, and tissue hypoperfusion results in increased lactic acid levels. We aimed to determine whether lactic acid levels are associated with pediatric intussusception outcomes. Methods: The electronic medical records of our emergency department pediatric patients An outcome was considered poor when intussusception recurred within 48 hours of reduction or when surgical reduction was required due to air enema failure.
