Abstract

Paracetamol poisoning remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Identifying indices of poor prognosis at first presentation is key to both improving clinical care and determining targets for intervention. Renal failure is a feature of severe paracetamol poisoning. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between renal function (serum creatinine, Cr) at first hospital presentation and time of tertiary referral to outcomes in severe paracetamol poisoning.
