Rao, A., Lin, N., Griese, S., et al. (2018). Clinical Criteria to Trigger Suspicion for Botulism: An Evidence-Based Tool to Facilitate Timely Recognition of Suspected Cases During Sporadic Events and Outbreaks.
The authors created a tool to aid in clinical assessment for botulism based on frequency of signs and symptoms of confirmed cases. While the tool cannot be used for diagnostic purposes, the authors suggest it can be useful in triaging patients and helping clinicians identify possible cases.
