- Differential Diagnosis
- Try building your search one term at a time, and be as specific as you can! Search term example: "chronic cough".
- Do not enter multiple findings such as "anemia, chronic cough, weight loss, vomiting" all at the same time.
- After selecting your term from the search results a list of possible diagnoses will be generated. If the list is too long, you will be able to narrow it down by entering additional terms.
- Do not enter values such as "heart rhythm 110" or "sodium 125", instead use "tachycardia" or "hyponatremia".

- Carbohydrate-Deficient Transferrin test
Chronic alcohol abuse is frequent in patients admitted to the intensive care unit with acute drug overdose. During detoxification, an alcohol withdrawal syndrome may develop in patients with a history of chronic alcohol abuse. Withdrawal or delirium is associated with serious risks, necessitating early identification of patients at risk. Since the information obtained from the patients or their relatives on alcohol consumption is often unreliable, biochemical markers may be helpful. Carbohydrate deficient transferrin is considered a highly specific marker (reported maximum specificity 97%, sensitivity 40-85%) for identifying alcohol abuse.
