Median (IQR) lactate, mM 14.4 (13.6–15.3) 2.7 (1.9–3.3)
Median (IQR) age, years 2.3 (1.5–3.8) 2.5 (1.7–4.2)
Gender (female:male) 16:20 14:23
Median (IQR) haemoglobin, g/dL 2.8 (2.6–3.4) 3.0 (2.8–3.7)
Mean (SD) O2-saturation, % 96.8 (4.1) 97.5 (2.4)
Mean (SD) log parasitaemiaa 4.66 (0.79) 4.28 (1.07)
