Patterns of acute poisoning with pesticides in the paediatric age group - Dayasiri KC, Jayamanne SF, Jayasinghe CY.

BACKGROUND: Pesticides are identified as one of the dangerous poisons globally in children and are associated with increased short- and long-term morbidity. Pesticide poisoning is the most common method of self-poisoning among adults in rural Sri Lanka, an...

Hot on the heels of headlines linking alcohol consumption with longer life comes new research that casts a much more sobering light on drinking. According to an analysis of more than 1 million people—the largest study of its kind to date—scientists say that heavy alcohol use is the biggest modifiable risk factor for dementia, especially early-onset forms of the disease. The findings, which are published in The Lancet Public Health, came as a shock to the researchers involved. “We hypothesized that alcohol would play some role, but I don’t think anyone expected the size of the effect to be so large,&...

Authors: Chen J Abstract The desktop slot exhaust hood has been widely used, but it is calculated by empirical formula. Axial velocity change rule of desktop slot exhaust hood can effectively provide the basis of the wind speed needed in order to control the poison. According to gas motion mathematical model, the geometry model and boundary conditions of desktop slot exhaust hood was established, and the influence of the hood sizes to axial velocity were analyzed by Fluent simulation. The changes of relationship between the axial velocity(V) and the distance from the hood mouth (L), the short edge of the hood mouth...

Authors: Sun L, Yan PB, Zhang Y, Wei LQ, Li GQ Abstract The present study retrospectively analyzed 19 patients diagnosed with paraquat (PQ) poisoning with the aim to investigate the effect of activated charcoal hemoperfusion on renal function and PQ elimination. The results indicated that 7 patients died and 12 survived. Non-oliguric renal failure occurred in all of the 7 patients who died. Among the 12 surviving patients, 10 had normal renal function and 2 developed non-oliguric renal failure. There was a linear correlation between plasma and urine paraquat concentration prior to and during activated charcoal hemo...

Publication date: 15 June 2018 Source:Chemical Engineering Journal, Volume 342 Author(s): Meng Li, Biao Liu, Xinran Wang, Xiaobin Yu, Shili Zheng, Hao Du, David Dreisinger, Yi Zhang A large amount of spent selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst is generated annually. The spent SCR catalyst is poisoned by arsenic and alkaline metals. These spent catalysts also contain substantial amounts of heavy metals and are therefore considered as hazardous solid waste. In order to decontaminate the catalysts from As, K and Na poisoning, recover the valuable metals (V and W) and regenerate the catalysts, an efficient and green ad...
