Charcoal


Presentation

  • Abstract We present a retrospective study to evaluate safety and effectiveness of ultrasound (US)-guided tattooing with charcoal of suspicious laterocervical lymph nodes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Anemia
  • We report the case of a 75-yr-old woman referred for gastrointestinal endoscopy to investigate severe iron deficiency anemia. Black linear lesions were observed in the distal esophagus and stomach.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pneumonia
  • Pentamidine isethionate is an antimicrobial agent effective in the treatment of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, trypanosomiasis and leishmaniasis. Severe and fatal toxicity is reported with pentamidine use.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hematuria
  • Thrombocytopenia and hematuria were found incipiently and supportive measures were employed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Tonic-Clonic Seizure
  • Tachycardia, irregular and shallow breathing, and tonic-clonic seizures were observed on physical examination. An electrocardiogram displayed a narrow complex tachycardia that was consistent with re-entrant supraventricular tachycardia (SVT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Convulsions
  • A 78-year-old woman, weighing 50 kg, who had undergone brain surgery was prescribed phenobarbital 120 mg/day for postoperative convulsions. Her serum phenobarbital concentration reached 24.8 microg/mL (therapeutically effective level 10-30).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • We used pharmacokinetic data from a patient and from case reports to generate a formula for predicting treatment time.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • The literature is reviewed regarding the aetiology, pathophysiology, and management of this condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Our findings suggest that IVCI-CHP may be useful to minimize the risk of hypertensive crises during surgical manipulation of pheochromocytoma, by preventing systemic exposure to high levels of circulatory catecholamines.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Fixatives are often used with charcoal drawings to solidify the position to prevent erasing or rubbing off of charcoal dusts.[en.wikipedia.org]
