OBJECTIVES Little is known about the clinical significance of acute ethanol coingestion around the time of acetaminophen (paracetamol) overdose. This study prospectively examined the effect of acute ethanol coingestion on risk of hepatotoxicity among patients admitted to hospital for N-acetylcysteine (NAC) therapy after deliberate acetaminophen overdose. METHODS This was a prospective observational study and included sequential patients who presented within 24 hours of acute acetaminophen… Expand
