Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) Test with Lactate

The Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) test with lactate is a diagnostic procedure that measures the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide in your blood, as well as the blood's acidity (pH). The test also assesses the levels of lactate in your blood, which is an indicator of tissue and organ function, particularly during episodes of decreased oxygen levels.


  • Test Name Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) Test with Lactate
  • Sample Type Arterial Blood
  • Preparations Required No specific preparation is required
  • Report Time 4 hours

ABG testing is crucial in managing patients with breathing difficulties and those with critical illness, as it can assist healthcare providers in making important treatment decisions. Meanwhile, the lactate level can provide valuable information about a person's metabolic state, especially during serious illnesses like sepsis or heart failure.

Frequently Asked Questions

The test provides essential data about the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the blood, helping to assess lung function. The lactate levels can indicate tissue or organ dysfunction.

An arterial blood sample is used for this test.

No, fasting is not required for this test.

The test provides information about oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the blood, blood pH, and lactate levels, which reflect metabolic and tissue function.

You might need this test if you have a respiratory disease, are critically ill, or have symptoms of severe infections or heart failure.

This test is usually performed when needed, based on your symptoms and medical condition. It's not a routine test.

Normal values can vary, but generally, blood pH is between 7.35-7.45, carbon dioxide (PaCO2) is between 35-45 mm Hg, oxygen (PaO2) is 75-100 mm Hg, and lactate is typically under 2 mmol/L.

Yes, certain medications can affect your results. These include oxygen therapy, sedatives, and certain heart and lung medications.

Abnormal values might indicate a problem with lung function, metabolic disturbances, or organ dysfunction. Your healthcare provider will advise you on the next steps based on these results.

Diet per se may not have a direct effect, but overall health and wellness, which includes diet, can affect your test results.

The test involves drawing blood from an artery, usually in your wrist, which may cause more discomfort than a standard venous draw.

Addressing the underlying cause is the key to normalizing your values. This might involve lifestyle changes, medications, or other interventions.

You should consult your primary care physician, who may refer you to a pulmonologist, cardiologist, or critical care specialist.

Yes, severe infections can cause changes in your ABG and elevate lactate levels.

Inform your healthcare provider about any medications you are currently taking, as some of them might affect the results.

Your healthcare provider will review the results with you and decide on any necessary treatments or further tests.

The ABG with Lactate test is highly reliable when performed correctly. It is a vital diagnostic tool in critical care settings.

Stress doesn't directly affect ABG results but can increase lactate levels due to enhanced metabolic activity.

  • Modifiable Factors: Smoking, alcohol intake, and certain medications.
  • Nonmodifiable Factors: Age, genetics, and pre-existing conditions like lung disease.

Yes, smoking can significantly affect your ABG levels as it influences lung function.

Understanding your ABG with Lactate results is vital, particularly in critical care situations. In combination with your clinical condition and other diagnostic tests, it helps your healthcare provider determine the best treatment strategy. Always ensure to discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider and follow their advice for optimal health management.
