Table 2 Lactate risk category classification determined by the i-STAT and the blood gas analysers

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

Risk category i-STAT GEM 4000 Risk category i-STAT OMNI S
Low <2.5 mmol/L (n = 40) 40 40 Low <2.5 mmol/L (n = 45) 45 45
Medium 2.5 – 3.99 mmol/L (n = 3) 3 3 Medium 2.5 – 3.99 mmol/L (n = 2) 2 2
High ≥4 mmol/L (n = 7) 7 7 High ≥4 mmol/L (n = 0) 0 0
  1. The above table shows that all lactate samples (50) analysed on the i-STAT and the GEM 4000 analysers fell in the same lactate risk level categories
  2. Similarly, all lactate samples (47) analysed on the i-STAT and the OMNI S fell in the same lactate risk level categories
