What is the use of sodium lactate injection?

Q: What is the use of getting compound sodium lactate to dilute the thickness of blood?

A:I am not sure about the exact nature of your query. However, Sodium Lactate Injection is primarily indicated, after dilution, as a source of bicarbonate for prevention or control of mild to moderate metabolic acidosis in patients with restricted oral intake whose oxidative processes are not seriously impaired. It is not intended nor effective for correcting severe acidotic states, which require immediate restoration of plasma bicarbonate levels. Sodium Lactate has no advantage over sodium bicarbonate and may be detrimental in the management of lactic acidosis. Also, if one thinks of it being used as a thinning agent, its use is restricted to metabolic acidosis. For the kind of symptoms you have you would need a cardiologists opinion.
