Objective: Carbon monoxide (CO) is the main cause of intoxication-related mortality and morbidity in developed countries. It is responsible for more than half of fatal intoxications in many countries. The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of protein carbonyl (PC), a good marker of oxidative stress, in association with oxidative stress resulting from hypoxia emerging in patients with acute CO intoxication.
