GC-MS analysis of breath odor compounds in liver patients.
TLDR
Breath analysis by GC-MS makes it possible to discriminate patients with breath malodor related to hepatic pathologies, which might be useful for diagnosis. Expand
Breath biomarkers of liver cirrhosis.
TLDR
It is suggested that a specific pattern of breath biomarkers can be found in patients with cirrhosis, which may allow detecting this complication of chronic liver disease in an early stage. Expand
Detection of Odorous Compounds in Breath
TLDR
It is concluded that hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan and, to a much lesser extent, dimethyl sulfide and di- and trisulfide can contribute to oral malodor. Expand
Comparison of electron and chemical ionization modes by validation of a quantitative gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric assay of new generation antidepressants and their active metabolites in
TLDR
This method can quantitate most new antidepressants (ADs) in the therapeutic range using EI. Expand
Differences between alveolar air and mouth air.
TLDR
This study explored the differences between breath air from the oropharynx and from the lungs in healthy volunteers and found the number of compounds was significantly higher in mouth air than in alveolar air. Expand
Halitosis associated volatiles in breath of healthy subjects.
TLDR
GC-MS seems a promising tool for differential diagnosis of halitosis, with the possibility to detect extra-oral causes, which often remain undetected unless characterized by a specific smell. Expand
Ethylene glycol poisoning: quintessential clinical toxicology; analytical conundrum.
TLDR
An assessment of analytical methods for the analytes relevant for the diagnosis and prognosis of ethylene glycol poisoning and of the role of the ethylene Glycol metabolites, glycolic and oxalic acids, in its toxicity is reviewed. Expand
Analysis of γ-hydroxybutyric acid, DL-lactic acid, glycolic acid, ethylene glycol and other glycols in body fluids by a direct injection gas chromatography-mass spectrometry assay for wide use
TLDR
A fast method for the simultaneous measurement of ethylene glycol, glycolic acid, γ-hydroxybutyric acid and racemic lactic acid, very suitable for emergency toxicology, since several toxic substances can be quantified simultaneously in a fast and sensitive manner. Expand
Chloral hydrate intoxication in a 3-month-old child: avoidance of hemodialysis by an immediate determination of trichloroethanol.
TLDR
The repeated determination of serum TCE levels prevented a technically difficult and risky hemodialysis in this very young patient. Expand
