Do lab findings help in mesenteric ischemia

In the early stages of mesenteric ischemia there are no specific abnormal laboratory values, only those that are associated with the underlying condition from which the ischemia developed.

Nonspecific laboratory abnormalities that develop over the course of the disease process are a result of the consequence of ischemia (i.e., tissue hypoxia, inflammation, necrosis, and volume sequestration) and include hemoconcentration, leukocytosis, and lactic acidosis.
