  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    claims are that carbonmonoxide causes hearing loss. It is important in terms of the knowledge in CO poisonings

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    all the references for this case reports are about hearing loss in CO poisoning

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?


  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?

    there is no previous audio in this patient. The evidence is ciurcumstantial which is reasonable

  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?

    RCT cannot be done for the poisoning cases

  • Is the methodology valid? Does the paper offer enough details of its methodology that its experiments or its analyses could be reproduced?

    This is a case report and not a study

  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?

    It is difficult  to do this  work on humans . Guess it is possible to do on animals 

  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?

    no, only a case report
