Acute Liver Failure

How is Acute Liver Failure Diagnosed?

Physical assessment by a healthcare professional, along with blood tests to determine liver function will be performed. Also, when the liver fails, blood doesn’t clot as quickly as it should, therefore a prothrombin time test may be performed to measure how quickly the blood clots.

In cases where the patient may be incapacitated, family members and close friends will need to assist medical personnel in providing patient history.

Finally, examination of liver tissue (biopsy) may also be performed to determine why the liver is failing.
