Mechanism of Actions
Sodium lactate is a sterile, nonpyrogenic solution that is used for fluid and electrolyte replenishment. It has metabolic alkalinising ability and is capable of inducing diuresis depending on the clinical condition of the patient.
Metabolism: Lactate ions are metabolised to carbon dioxide and water, which requires the consumption of hydrogen cations.
