Elevated carbohydrate-deficient transferrin predicts prolonged intensive care unit stay in traumatized men.

Abstract

Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) is reported to have a higher specificity in alcoholism than conventional markers. As the morbidity and mortality rates amongst chronic alcoholics are raised following trauma, the objective was to investigate if CDT could be used to predict prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) stay and an increased morbidity in… (More)
