Chiwunze, Chen Liu, Rajshekhar KarpoormathAbstractAcetaminophen (AC) is one of the most commonly prescribed analgesic and antipyretic drug, which is considered to be safe as well as effective. Rational use of AC does not pose any toxicity or adverse effects, however, an overdose or prolonged use could lead to nephrotoxicity and severe hepatoxicity. Thus, monitoring of AC is essential for drug safety. In this work, a facile Fe2O3/reduced graphene oxide (Fe2O3/RGO) nanocomposite was synthes...

This report describes trends in the death rates for unintentional injuries and three leading causes of deaths due to unintentional injuries (motor vehicle traffic, drug overdose, and falls) from 1999 through 2017. Given an observed increase in overall unintentional injury rates starting in 2014 (5), differences in death rates are described by urbanization level (rural, small metropolitan [metro], large fringe metro, and large central metro) for the leading causes of unintentional injury deaths for 2014 and 2017.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMedications for addiction treatment (MAT) are the standard of care for treating opioid use disorder (OUD) and reducing overdose deaths, yet demand for MAT providers has outstripped supply in the USA. Public policy and graduate medical education (GME) leaders have called for increased focus on addiction medicine training for resident physicians to mitigate this provider gap. We sought to characterize the current state of OUD training at the GME level by reviewing published literature on GME educational interventions designed to enhance the care of patients with OUD.Recent FindingsWe identified 31 ar...

ConclusionsMEs were common, since they occurred in 57.5% of children with ALL on induction treatment and involved 16.5% of chemotherapy orders. Only 3.7% of MEs were intercepted, while 12.2% of children had ADEs related to overdose. Measures are required to prevent calculation error in prescriptions, as well as training of the nursing staff to intercept MEs.

Over the past decade, opioid use in the United States has increased rapidly. However, patient satisfaction with pain management has not improved. Instead, with growing number of overdose deaths, over- and misuse of opioids has been declared a public health crisis. Patients presenting for lumbar spine surgery frequently present with pain related to their spine condition, are frequently consuming opioids to treat this pain and, following surgery, this is exacerbated due to disruption of skin, muscle tissue, vertebrae, intervertebral discs, and facet joints.

In the late 1990s to early 2000s, concern about pain under-treatment resulted in greater numbers of prescriptions for pain medications being written across the United States. After this, according to CDC data, from 1999 to 2017, more than 700,000 people died from a drug overdose with approximately 68% of the more than 70,200 opioid-related overdose deaths in 2017 alone. Government agencies across the country have taken measures to address this alarming trend. An instrumental change occurred on October 6, 2014 when the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) rescheduled hydrocodone combination products from Schedule III to Schedul...
