Intoxication


Presentation

  • Methods: We present a case series of patients with SC intoxication who presented to our toxicology service covering two tertiary care EDs between 2/11/2015 and 6/23/2015.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 24-year-old patient presented to the emergency department with acute encephalopathy and diffuse muscular rigidity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: The present study demonstrates that several risk factors stratify the risk of re-hospitalization in patients admitted to EDs for AAI, allowing the identification of those presenting more severe conditions and who would likely benefit from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • At presentation, two hours after intake, he showed QTc prolongation and hypokalaemia. The patient was treated with the usual supportive care and, although presentation to hospital was later, with intravenous lipid emulsion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Importantly, in all cases reported until now in the literature, CCB intoxication was known at the time of patients' presentation and the medical challenge solely consisted of the therapeutic approach.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Thrombosis
  • Each patient was monitored from 2000 to 2011 to identify those who were subsequently diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Cutaneous Manifestation
  • We report a case of acute fish liver intoxication with systemic and cutaneous manifestations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Blurred Vision
  • The typical symptoms of hypervitaminosis A include nausea, headache, blurred vision, and cutaneous manifestations, such as flushing, vesicles formation, and desquamation. Hypervitaminosis D may result in hypercalcemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Perseveration
  • ., negative urgency, positive urgency, sensation seeking, lack of premeditation, and lack of perseverance) differentially predict perpetration of physical intimate partner aggression (IPA) through problematic drinking in intoxicated and nonintoxicated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • So—what's is love without perseverance. Your love is only fleeting if it doesn't gets you a beating.” ― Jimvirle/Jinvirle “If you’re afraid of intensity you’re missing out on new levels.[goodreads.com]

Workup

  • The results of an extensive diagnostic workup to elucidate the cause were unfruitful.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • In the non-intoxicated group, the most common reason for the lack of ED treatment was that treatment could take place on an outpatient basis, while in the intoxicated group, the reason was lack of patient cooperation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: The diagnosis and treatment of intoxication by alcohol and other drugs in adolescents and children in the emergency scenario requires a systematic evaluation of the use of these drugs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Substance use is common among individuals admitted to the critical care setting and may complicate treatment of underlying disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Valproic acid (VPA) is widely used for the treatment of epilepsy. However, its overdose can cause intoxication and could be life-threatening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • : The role of vitamin C in the treatment of methemoglobinemia has not been well established, with only a few published case reports.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Early admission to a tertiary referral center with expertise in LT results in a better prognosis and increased survival following M-ALF.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract BACKGROUND We compared the factors that might impact the severity and the prognosis of carbamazepine (CBZ) intoxication in children, as well as the efficacy levels of the treatment options.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Patients presenting with peripheral neuropathy secondary to carbon monoxide intoxication may show variable recovery periods; however, a favorable prognosis can be expected regardless of the concomitant occurrence of rhabdomyolysis and/or compartment syndrome[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • An electrodiagnostic study may be helpful for diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy after CO intoxication and prediction of patient's prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The prognosis of paraquat poisoning is determined by the time of poisoning and the plasma paraquat concentration before treatment. Proudfoot's curve provides a simple method of predicting the survival rate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Findings harbor adverse implications for surveillance, etiologic understanding, and prevention of suicides and drug deaths.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These findings suggest that different inflammatory and antioxidant responses were involved in deaths from different etiologies, and these markers may be useful for evaluating brain damage and responses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • In this review, epidemiological data and hypotheses about the possible molecular mechanisms underlying the association between ApoE and mercury intoxication are assessed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • RESULTS: Nine epidemiological studies show clear evidence of abuse and dependence in tobacco-free ANcBQ and/or ANcBQ Tobacco chewers. Dependency is greater if ANcBQ contains tobacco.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This article reviews the epidemiology of substance use in this population and the identification and treatment of common intoxication and withdrawal syndromes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Rockett is with the Department of Epidemiology, School of Public Health, and the Injury Control Research Center, West Virginia University, Morgantown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: Few studies have explored the epidemiology of students presenting to the emergency department (ED) as a consequence of hazardous drinking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • A number of studies were reviewed in order to update and summarize the relevant literature on the incidence, sociodemographic variables, method of poisoning, pathophysiology, diagnosis, variables associated with survival and fatality, management, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Logan, Wendy LiKamWa McIntosh, and Aimee Trudeau are with the Division of Violence Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA. Ian R. H.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Pretreatment of Ib with α-defensin-1 prior to addition of Ia prevented intoxication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In conclusion, these cases show the benefit of supplemental intravenous lipid emulsion to prevent cardiac toxicity after a severe intoxication with hydroxychloroquine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • With the information gained in our culturally specific and culturally sensitive trauma community, we can use the information to fine-tune our trauma preventive medicine programs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The Tennessee Department of Health reviewed medical records and police reports to learn more about the racing fuel source, assess ongoing risk, and guide prevention efforts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
