Detection of carbamylated haemoglobin, measured as valine hydantoin per g haemoglobin (VH/g Hb), may be useful in differentiating between patients with acute or chronic renal failure. To assess this test, we measured carbamylated haemoglobin prospectively in 42 consecutive patients referred to the regional renal unit with a serum creatinine in excess of 500 mumol/L and a provisional diagnosis of acute renal failure (ARF). Patients were subsequently classed on clinical criteria as having ARF (20… CONTINUE READING
