BACKGROUND Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning are serious health problems, and effect of reducing the blood's oxygen carrying capacity. Deaths due to CO poisoning are mostly related to myocardial injury and central nervous system pathologies. AIM The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between carbon monoxide intoxication, QT dispersion,(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of increased oxidative stress on the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is well known. One of the antioxidative systems against oxidative stress in human body is paraoxonase (PON) enzyme that protects low density lipoproteins (LDL) against oxidation. This study aimed to explore the polymorphisms on PON1, Q192R,(More)
OBJECTIVE The elderly population is steadily increasing in the modern world. The aging of the population has led to an increase in geriatric trauma. Elderly trauma patients present unique challenges and face more significant obstacles in recovery compared to younger patients. This study is designed to determine the epidemiologic data of trauma in elderly(More)
AIM Migraine is common in society and is one of the primary causes of chronic headache with episodes. In this study, we aimed to determine the role of meteorologic parameters and moon phase on triggering migraine attacks and effects on the number of patients presenting to the emergency department with migraine headaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients(More)
The authors evaluated neuron-specific enolase (NSE), S100 calcium-binding protein B (S100B), and heat shock protein 70 (HSP 70) levels and their relationships with in-hospital mortality, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) scores, and National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) scores. In total, 35 patients older than 18 years were presented to our emergency(More)
INTRODUCTION Ghrelin is a novel brain-gut peptide hormone consisted of 28 amino-acid. In the plasma, it exists in two major molecular forms, acylated and des-acyled ghrelin, filtered in glomeruli or secreted by nephrons. Primary biological effects of hormones are regulating appetite, foods intake and energy metabolism. We investigated the changing and(More)
BACKGROUND In our study, we aimed to determine the change in levels of salusin-alpha and salusin-beta at admission and after the treatment in patients with STEMI, who have active atherosclerosis. METHODS Serum salusin-alpha and beta levels of 50 patients diagnosed with STEMI in the emergency department were measured at admission and on 7th day(More)
BACKGROUND To determine copeptin levels in patients with suspected intracranial events and to determine whether copeptin levels could be used in the discrimination of cerebral infarction, intracranial hemorrhage, and subarachnoid hemorrhage in the emergency room. METHODS Blood samples were obtained from the patients prior to imaging to determine the(More)
Objective It was aimed to detect acylated ghrelin (AG), unacylated ghrelin (UG) and copeptin levels in patients with suicide attempts and to determine if these biomarkers are risk factors for suicide attempts. Methods Serum copeptin, AG and GU levels were screened in 128 patients who were admitted to emergency department with suicide attempts and 59(More)
