Suicide Attempt

Suicide and Attempted Suicide


Presentation

  • Oromandibular dystonia is a subtype of dystonia which can present with perioral manifestations. In extreme cases, it can lead to temporomandibular dislocation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Logistic regression analyses and multiple regression analyses were used to identify factors associated with the present suicide attempt and the number of suicide attempts, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • At presentation, the patient was well oriented with normal vital signs, but a few hours later she presented an abrupt deterioration of her mental status, with confusion, disorientation, tremor and finally stupor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Metformin intoxication should be suspected when patients present with high anion gap metabolic acidosis after attempting suicide by ingesting drugs, particularly when comorbidities such as renal failure are present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 56-year-old Moroccan man known to have untreated paranoid schizophrenia and a history of several previous suicide attempts was presented to the emergency unit of our hospital after self-stabbing with a 15 cm sewing needle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pathologist
  • This case report is an eye opener for speech language pathologists regarding their role in such cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
  • Abstract Modafinil (Provigil) is a wake-promoting drug approved for patients with narcolepsy or other causes of excessive daytime sleepiness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Chest Discomfort
  • A 22-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency department with symptoms of chest discomfort after a suicide attempt by injecting intravenously the amount of mercury extracted from 3 thermometers mixed with alcohol.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pseudotumor
  • A right-handed 41-year-old female with a past medical history significant for bipolar depression (with multiple prior hospital admissions for suicide attempts) and pseudotumor cerebri (status-post VPS placement from a right frontal approach) successfully[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Abdominal Cramps
  • The patient's clinical manifestations included abdominal cramps, vomiting, pancytopenia, hypocholesterolemia, and rhabdomyolysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • She was 16 years old and had abdominal distension, vomiting, abdominal cramping and failure to pass gas or stool. Immediately we suspected mechanical blockade of the intestine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Abdominal Distension
  • She was 16 years old and had abdominal distension, vomiting, abdominal cramping and failure to pass gas or stool. Immediately we suspected mechanical blockade of the intestine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Arthritis
  • BACKGROUND: Sparse information is available concerning mental health issues in psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hematuria
  • Critical hematological abnormalities, gastrointestinal bleeding, and hematuria developed over 24 hours. He received crotalidae polyvalent immune fab (ovine) anti-venom and was discharged after 5 days without sequela.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Tantrums
  • BPD suicide attempters had higher ALS, ALS - Depression-Anxiety Subscale and LHA scores and were more likely to have a history of non-suicidal self-injury or temper tantrums compared to BPD non-attempters.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • , supportive relationship treatment, community treatment by non-behavioral psychotherapy experts, emergency care enhanced by provider education, no treatment) for SA/NSSI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Newer medical treatment options of long-acting stimulants offer effective treatment with a lower risk of abuse potential. We describe a case of a 17-year-old girl who had attempted suicide by ingesting 270 mg of Concerta.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Youth were randomized either to SAFETY or to treatment as usual enhanced by parent education and support accessing community treatment (E-TAU).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] and with a first attempted treatment by psychodynamic therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This study explores the clinical and phenomenological aspects as well as the treatment of Chinese demented patients who have attempted suicide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • RESULTS: In guiding the care of this patient, we found that the patient's prognosis of days to weeks made the ethical rationale of implementing aggressive medical interventions to treat the sequelae of his suicide attempt less compelling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • These observations may open up new avenues in the genetic etiology of SB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Possible medical and psychiatric etiologies related to this brief psychotic episode in a geriatric patient are also discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Ongoing controversies regarding etiology, diagnosis, treatment Due to the risks of research studies with suicidal patients, there are many questions that remain unanswered.[clinicaladvisor.com]
  • Thus, our study raises an important question: longitudinal, follow-up studies are methodologically sound studies that allow drawing etiological connections between risk factors and suicide.[bmcpsychiatry.biomedcentral.com]

Epidemiology

  • We aim to report the results of the first meta-analysis of controlled epidemiological studies on AUA and suicide attempt.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this report, we present a comprehensive model of the 3-year risk of suicide attempt in heavy drinkers using a longitudinal nationally representative study, the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC; wave 1, 2001-2002[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • METHODS: Using a large (N 34,653), nationally representative US adult sample, the 2004-2005 National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions, we examined whether individuals who first attempted suicide during childhood (under the age of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • DESIGN AND METHODS: The sample consisted of participants from the 2001-2002 National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Future studies are required to clarify the underlying pathophysiology and elucidate whether prompt intervention for conduct disorder could reduce this risk. Copyright 2016 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Motivated by these developments, the NIMH-funded Mental Health Research Network has undertaken a multisite trial of two outreach programs to prevent suicide attempts among outpatients identified by routinely administered PHQ9 questionnaires.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: NSSI was uniquely associated with suicide attempt characteristics, highlighting the importance of NSSI in suicide assessment, prevention, and treatment efforts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSIONS: Implementing a protocol of early telephone follow-up after attempted suicide could help prevent repeated attempt/s. More controlled studies are needed to assess optimal techniques to prevent such repetition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Author information 1 Department of Hematology and Oncology, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53226, USA. smarks@mcw.edu Abstract BACKGROUND: There is broad ethical and professional consensus that preventing a patient from initiating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These results have important implications for the direction of future research about protective factors associated with AI/AN youth suicide risk as well as in the design of suicide intervention and prevention programs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
