Özet

Aims: Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is very common. Although it causes death in some cases, the pathophysiologic mechanisms that generate these fatal complications are still not fully understood. No study has directly focused on the indicators of severe complications resulting from CO poisoning; therefore, we investigated red cell distribution width (RDW), which is an indicator of systemic inflammation in patients with CO poisoning.
