      We read the article “Predicting of neuropsychosis in carbon monoxide poisoning according to the plasma troponin, carboxyhemoglobin (COHb), red cell distribution width (RDW) and mean platelet volume (MPV) levels” by Coskun et al. [

      Predicting of neuropsychosis in carbon monoxide poisoning according to the plasma troponin, COHb, RDW and MPV levels.
      ] They aimed to determine the predictivity of neuro psychosis in carbon monoxide poisoning by the admission levels of RDW, MPV and troponin I levels which can be measured quickly and easily in the emergency department (ED). They concluded that RDW and MPV can be helpful for risk stratification of neuropsychosis in carbon monoxide poisoning. This study gives important information on this clinically relevant condition.
