Figure 2: The total dose of NaHCO3 administered in relation to the maximum postoperative serum lactate concentration among patients undergoing thoracic aortic operations with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest, who had lactate measurements (n = 34). Total dose of NaHCO3 correlated significantly with the maximum postoperative serum lactate concentration (r = 0.46, P = 0.004). NaHCO3: Sodium bicarbonate
