Background: "Serum lactate level can predict clinical outcomes in some critical cases. In the clinical setting, we noted that patients undergoing extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) and with poor serum lactate improvement often do not recover from cardiopulmonary arrest. Therefore, we investigated the association between lactate clearance and in-hospital mortality in cardiac arrest patients undergoing ECPR."1
