Abstract

Objective Carbon monoxide poisoning (COP) is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity due to poisoning worldwide. Because children are affected more quick and severely from COP, they may require a longer treatment period, even if carboxyhemoglobin (CO-Hb) and/or lactate levels return to normal. Therefore, a new marker that predicts the duration of treatment and the final outcomes of COP is needed.
