Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot from patients and friends who are enthusiastically pursuing a “whole body cleanse” or “colon cleanse,” or a “detoxification cleanse.” And I’ve seen ads about these cleanses promising a number of health benefits, based on the general principle that every so often it’s a good idea to rid yourself of toxins that are undoubtedly accumulating within you. Spring cleaning for your body? The idea goes back centuries. And sure, cleansing — or cleaning — is clear enough for bathing or mopping a floor. But how does a cleanse work in the ...

CONCLUSION: Intravenous calcium gluconate administration along with morphine can improve abdominal pain in lead poisoning due to the ingestion of lead-contaminated opium. Further interventional studies are recommended to see if response to calcium salts in suspected lead-induced abdominal pain can rule in lead toxicity. TRIAL REGISTRATION: IRCT20171009036661N2.

We examined Emergency Medical Services (EMS) utilization among a cohort of individuals who died from opioid overdose in order to identify potential opportunities for intervention. Methods: Individuals who died of unintentional opioid overdose in a large North Carolina county between 01/01/2014 and 12/31/2016 were studied in a retrospective cohort. Death records obtained from North Carolina Vital Records were linked to EMS patient care records obtained from the county EMS System in order to describe the EMS encounters of each decedent in the year preceding their death. Patient demographics and EMS encounters were assessed t...

CONCLUSIONS: The clinical presentation of a patient suffering from latrodectism places the clinician in front of a challenging differential diagnosis. Following the suspicion, the first-line doctor is invited to discuss the case with a toxicologist, in order to confirm or exclude the diagnosis and implement all therapeutic measures. In our clinical case, the absence of organic lesions, laboratory tests not suggestive for other causes, and the presence of typical clinical feature suggested the diagnosis of L tredecimguttatus poisoning. This hypothesis was then supported by the close temporal relation between antivenom admin...

Abstract In 2011, Florida established a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program and adopted new regulations for independent pain-management clinics. This paper examines the association of those reforms with drug overdose deaths and other injury fatalities. Florida's post-reform monthly mortality rates - for drug-involved deaths, motor vehicle crashes, and suicides by means other than poisoning - were compared to a counterfactual estimate of what those rates would have been absent reform. The counterfactual was estimated using a Bayesian structural time-series model based on mortality trends in similar states. By Dece...
