From: Preperitoneal pelvic packing in patients with hemodynamic instability due to severe pelvic fracture: early experience in a Korean trauma center

Serum lactate level (mmol/L) Survivor (n = 11) Non-survivor (n = 3) a p-value
Trauma intensive care unit day 1 3.2 ± 1.4 3.6 ± 0.5 0.63
Trauma intensive care unit day 2 2.9 ± 1.8 7.0 ± 2.8 0.02
Trauma intensive care unit day 3 1.9 ± 1.2 6.4 ± 4.5 0.22
Delta value of serum lactate (Day 1 – Day 3) −1.4 ± 1.3 2.8 ± 4.8 0.28
