Lactate CSF Test

Lactate CSF Test

A doctor might suggest a lactate test when a patient has sepsis, shock, severe congestive heart failure, or other problems. The symptoms include rapid breathing, nausea, and sweating, which show that there isn't enough oxygen in the body. It could be a sign that there is not enough oxygen in the body or that there is not enough lactate in the blood to get rid of it.

Lactic acidosis can happen if there is too much lactate in the blood. People who have hyperlactatemia have too much lactate in their blood. There are average milligrams per decilitre (mg/dL) between 4.5 and 19.8 milligrams. The blood lactate level can be measured with both venous and arterial blood. Before the lactate test, doctors say it's best not to exercise, eat, or drink anything but water for 8 to 10 hours.

Why done? 

  • If a doctor detects infections, heart attack, severe congestive heart failure, kidney failure, or untreated diabetes
  • Symptoms such as nausea, fast breathing, and sweating may indicate a shortage of oxygen or an unbalanced acid/base balance.
  • To identify lactate levels in the blood, which may indicate hypoxia or other situations causing lactate overproduction or under-clearing.


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
