It’s simply increase the likelihood of finding bacteria within the blood if there is any.

Please do we check serum lactate to check perfusion of tissues? Can you help me please? That’s the last bit of the sepsis bundle I need to explain really well for interview

If you have two blood cultures grow the same bug from two different samples from different sites, it’s more likely to be a genuine finding rather than just contamination from the skin or blood taking process.

With lactate, what do you think happens when tissue isn’t perfused adequately? Where does lactate come from and why?
