Abstract

Methanol poisoning (MP) often causes acute mortality and morbidities; however, the association between MP and subsequent mortality has not been well studied. We conducted a nationwide population-based cohort study by identifying 621 participants with MP from the Nationwide Poisoning Database and 6210 participants without MP from the Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000 by matching the index date at a 1:10 ratio between 1999 and 2012. Comparison of the mortality rate between the two cohorts was performed by following up until 2013. A total of 249 (40%) participants with MP and 154 (2.5%) participants without MP died during the follow-up (p < 0.001). Statistic analysis showed that participants with MP had a higher risk for mortality than did the participants without MP (adjusted hazard ratio [AHR]: 13.48; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 10.76-16.88). The risk of mortality was highest in the first 6 months after MP (AHR: 480.34; 95% CI: 117.55-1962.75). Hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, liver disease, malignancy, drug abuse, and lower monthly income also predicted mortality. MP was associated with increased subsequent mortality. Close follow-up for comorbidity control and socioeconomic assistance are suggested for patients with MP.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 August 2018.
All research outputs
#3,103,105
of 13,337,884 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#3,221
of 9,194 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#80,046
of 267,789 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#2
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,337,884 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 9,194 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,789 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
