Erratum to: The accuracy and timeliness of a Point Of Care lactate measurement in patients with Sepsis

Lactate risk category classification determined by the i-STAT and the blood gas analysers
Low <2.5 mmol/L (n = 40)
Low <2.5 mmol/L (n = 45)
Medium 2.5 – 3.99 mmol/L (n = 3)
Medium 2.5 – 3.99 mmol/L (n = 2)
High ≥4 mmol/L (n = 7)
High ≥4 mmol/L (n = 0)
Additionally, the incorrect patient numbers from Table 2 were reported in the ‘Results’ section. The ‘Comparison of i-STAT against GEM premier 4000’ sub-section should therefore have read as follows:
“Among the 50 samples (from 11 ICU patients) analysed on the GEM 4000 and the i-STAT; there were forty samples classified as low, three samples as medium and seven samples as high lactate risk level categories.”
This mistake does not alter the validity of the results and conclusions as all lactate samples analysed on the i-STAT and GEM 4000 analysers fell in the same lactate risk categories.
