摘自Yahoo问答:

So recently I was in hospital for drinking too much and I just want to know what some of these things mean on my discharge forms and how serious this actually was.

Initial and repeat lactate, 4.0 and 2.8 - is that really unhealthy or is that ok?

It says " HS dual nil added." What exactly is that and what does it mean?

Full paragraph just in case "O/E HR 96, other vitals within normal limits. Dehydrated. Strong smell of ETOH. GCS15. HS dual nil added, clear chest. Soft non tender abdomen. Orientated, alert and neurology grossly normal. Observed walking - not ataxic. No external signs or trauma."


Best Answer: Hello,

Both lactate results seem low. Low lactate, means that you certainly didn't have a "lactic acidosis," - a metabolic upset caused by under-oxygenation or over-exercise.

So I think a low result was reassuring in this particular context. In my humble opinion, the doctor was wanting to rule out a *high* result.

The other "de-codes" are mostly just medical abbreviations. An expansion of them is,

Heart sounds [through a stethoscope] first and second heart-sounds normal, no heart murmurs heard.

HS = heart sounds, dual = first and second heart sounds, "nil added" = no extra abnormal sounds heard (no heart murmur).
