Liver Function Tests

When I first started in critical care, I got all the various liver function tests (LFTs) confused. Jonathan Downham over at the Critical Care Practitioner, made this great infographic that helps explain which tests tell you what.

And, if you want to go a little more in depth on liver failure, we did a great episode of the Critical Care Scenarios podcast with Elliot Tapper. Dr Tapper goes over everything you wanted to know about liver failure (including why he doesn’t want you to call these tests “liver function tests”).
