We undertook a blinded, randomised trial comparing the acid-base effects during the first 30 minutes of cardiopulmonary bypass of two 1500 ml primes with different anions: one with chloride anions only (chloride-only group, Ringer's Injection) and the other with both chloride and lactate (lactated group, Hartmann's solution).
While the chloride-only and lactated solution groups were similar, differing body size led to considerable variation within the groups, which will have affected the required sample size required for adequate power.
We conclude that acid-base changes with CPB primes of chloride-only or lactated solutions did not differ in the measured strong-ion-difference if lactate is included in the calculation of the measured strong-ion-difference.
