Salicylate measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of salicylate overdose and in monitoring salicylate levels to ensure appropriate therapy.
Salicylates are a class of analgesic, antipyretic and anti‑inflammatory drugs that includes aspirin.
Therapeutic range: < 30 mg/dL (< 2.2 mmol/L)
Toxic range: > 35 mg/dL (> 2.5 mmol/L)
Persons not on salicylate therapy have no salicylate in their serum. The expected values are expressed in terms of therapeutic range, which serves only as a guide for interpretation along with other clinical signs and symptoms.
|Millimole per liter||mmol/L = mM/L = millimol/L|
|Milligram per liter||mg/L = millig/L = milligram/L = mg/liter|
|Milligram per deciliter||mg/dL = millig/dL = milligram/dL|
|Milligram per 100 milliliters||mg/100mL = millig/100mL = milligram/100mL|
|Milligram percent||mg% = millig% = milligram%|
|Microgram per milliliter||µg/mL = mcg/mL = ug/mL= microg/mL = microgram/mL|
