Illustrated case report of phenol exposure

Phenol 3.5 out of 5 stars Phenol Toxicity Following Cutaneous Exposure to Creolin®:A Case Report. Vearrier D et al. J Med Toxicol 2015 Jun;11:227-231. Abstract This paper is worth looking at for the excellent color photographs of the partial thickness skin burns induced by exposure to Creolin®, which contains carbolic acid (phenol), sodium hydroxide, and isopropanol. A 9-year-old girl was brought to the emergency department because of respiratory distress and unresponsiveness. Symptoms came on quickly and started within 4 minutes of the mother pouring 8 oz Creolin® over the patients hair in an attempt to get rid of head lice. Some liquid made contact with the girl’s neck, back, shoulder, and upper arm. On arrival at hospital the patient was intubated because of decreased level of consciousness. Exam showed erythema and hyper pigmentation over areas that contact the liquid. External decontamination was accomplished by sponging with soap and water. Brief runs of monomorphic ventricular tachycardia were treated with lidocaine. Endoscopy did not find any GI lesions, and the paper was extubated within 12 hours of exposure. Ultimately, 17% body surface area partial thickness burns were documented. Many of these areas desquamated after several days. When the patient was seen again in the emergency department 2 years after this incident, there no residual scarring was seen. Some points from the paper: Phenol is caustic, causes coagulative necrosis, and is rapi...

The holidays can be a time of joy, but they can also be a challenge. Just think of all the cookies: delicious — but definitely not to be eaten before they are baked. That’s the word from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which issued a reminder before the holidays for people to “say no to raw dough.” Raw flour can contain the bacteria E. coli, and raw eggs can carry the risk of salmonella poisoning. Symptoms for salmonella poisoning can include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps hours to a few days after exposure, the CDC explains, while E. coli symptoms range from severe stoma...

Merck and Bayer have been granted FDA Breakthrough Device Designation for the collaborative Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) Artificial Intelligence Pattern Recognition software. CTEPH can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms are similar to asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease symptoms. CTEPH affects five people per million annually worldwide. Computed tomography pulmonary angiography and a ventilation/perfusion scan can be used to determine if thromboembolic occlusion is causing pulmonary hypertension in patients.

Are you heading home for the holidays, hosting relatives, or throwing parties? A strong dose of calm can help you enjoy yourself more and stress less. Here are a few ways to take holiday stress down a notch and invoke your calmest self. Find your calm Breathe deep: When your emotions run high, breathing speeds up, too. Deliberately slowing your breathing relaxes tense muscles, bringing shoulders down from ears, calms roiling emotions, and helps disarm the hormonal cascade within the body that feeds anxiety. Try this: close your eyes and breathe in deeply through your nose while counting upward. Hold for a few seconds....

(CBS Local/ CBS Baltimore)– Making cookies this holiday season? Resist the raw cookie dough. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention is using the holiday season to remind people that raw cookie dough can cause illnesses like e. coli and salmonella. In 2016, an e. coli outbreak linked to raw cookie dough sickened 63 people, the CDC reported. The CDC also asks people to check for recalled flour products, because flour often sits on the shelf for a while before it’s used. Cookie dough also contains raw eggs, which can be linked to salmonella poisoning. The CDC suggests these steps to keep you and your famil...
