  • Organophosphate Poisoning

    The aim of this study was to investigate effectiveness of the poisoning severity score (PSS), Glasgow coma scale (GCS), and corrected QT (QTc) interval in predicting outcomes[] Hemodynamic measurements substantiated the evidence of non cardiogenic pulmonary edema, while renal indices the presence of acute tubular necrosis.[] The therapeutic efficacies were compared using the following outcomes: dosage of atropine, time to awake from coma, time for normalization of cholinesterase levels, appearance[]

  • Opiate Overdose

    These findings were similar to those seen with other drug overdoses if combined with strenuous muscular effort or hypoxic coma.[] Note : Pulmonary edema may occur outside of the use of naloxone due to opioid induced histamine release, which has also been linked to changes in pulmonary capillary permeability[] Heroin and other opiates are central nervous system depressants; in an opiate overdose, respiration slows, potentially resulting in hypoxia, coma, or death.[]

  • Salicylate Poisoning

    […] poisoning, especially chronic (repeated administration of therapeutic or excessive doses for longer than 12 h), can include metabolic acidosis, hypoglycaemia, lethargy, and coma[] Pulmonary edema by itself, needless to say, would be an indication for hemodialysis.[] Delayed presentation, coma, hyperpyrexia, pulmonary oedema and acidaemia were more common in the fatal cases.[]
