      Avoiding life-threatening complications of rhabdomyolysis depends on early diagnosis and prompt management. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of urinary dipstick test in the detection of haeme pigment in patients who were at risk of acute renal failure [‎ARF]‎ due to rhabdomyolysis after suffering injury in the Bam earthquake.

We found no significant differences in the sensitivity, specificity ...
