  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Abstract Severe toxicity from ethanol, manifested as coma, occurs at lower blood alcohol concentrations in young teenagers than in adults. Coma, vomiting and hypothermia are the commonest symptoms in young teenagers intoxicated by alcohol. The biochemical disturbances in children 11-16 years of age with alcohol[…][]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    Abstract A 74-year-old woman with a past medical history of diabetes, hypertension, and alcohol abuse was brought to the emergency department and subsequently admitted to the intensive care unit with an altered mental status and weakness.

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Abstract A 42-year-old man with a history of Billroth II-gastrectomy, chronic alcoholism, and malnutrition developed acute tetraparesis, two days before admission. He presented with bilateral, proximal upper and lower limb weakness, limb girdle wasting, bilaterally reduced Achilles tendon reflexes, and bilateral[…][]

Barnett, Stroke: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management continues to provide the dependable, current answers you need to effectively combat the increasing incidence of this disease. Dr. J.P. Mohr, together with new associate editors Philip A.[…][]

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    OBJECTIVE: In order to inquire into the pathogenesis of increased platelet counts in peripheral blood of patients with iron deficiency anemia (IDA), the phenomenon of thrombocytosis was confirmed, and then the expression of tubulin within platelets from IDA patients was investigated. METHODS: Peripheral blood samples[…][]

  • Opiate Overdose

    BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The time available to act is a crucial factor affecting the probable success of interventions to manage opiate overdose. We analyse opiate users' accounts of non-fatal overdose incidents to (i) construct a proto-typology of non-fatal opiate overdose onset and (ii) assess the implications for[…][]
