Overview of the lactate infusion with two steady states. Data are presented as mean lactate values by arterial microdialysis (solid line) with mean values in steady state (filled triangles), bronchial microdialysis (long dash line) with mean values in steady state (filled circles) and ureacorrected bronchial microdialysis (dash-dot line) with mean values in steady state (open circles). The circles and the triangles represent the time where the microdialysis vials were exchanged for the steady state samples. The gray area is a graphical presentation of the intravenous lactate infusion. During the low steady state the infusion of sodium lactate was gradually increased to maintain an arterial blood lactate of ~5 mmol/L. During the high steady state the infusion of sodium lactate was increased to maintain an arterial blood lactate of ~10 mmol/L.
