Answer

In patients who present after a suicide attempt, and those with a history of co-ingestion, laboratory tests should also include the following:

  • Serum aspirin level
  • Serum acetaminophen level
  • Basic chemistry panel
  • Urine toxicology - Results may suggest significant co-ingestants such as opiates

See Workup for more detail.
