Abstract

Aim: The most common cause of death in CO poisoning is ventricular arrhythmias due to tissue hypoxia. In this study we aimed to investigate the relationship between severity of poisoning and Total Oxidant Status (TOS), total antioxidant status (TAS) and oxidative stress index (OSI) and also change in the levels of ischemia modified albumin (IMA) and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) over time in the patients with CO poisoning.
