Uncommon causes of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema
This article addresses the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnostics, treatment, and nursing considerations associated with each uncommon cause of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema.
CONCLUSION: Delirium due to quetiapine intoxication is described repeatedly. Presumably there is an underreporting of this condition and associated symptoms. Better knowledge could lead to better detection and treatment. PMID: 32484564 [PubMed - in process]
This report uses the most recent data from the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) to update trends in drug overdose deaths for all drugs and for specific drugs and drug types, and to identify changes in rates by state from 2017 to 2018. PMID: 32487285 [PubMed - in process]
Reports that COVID-19 is associated with venous and arterial thrombosis and pulmonary embolism and increased rates of thrombosis in cannulae and extracorporeal circuits for renal replacement or membrane oxygenation, have drawn attention to the coagulant effects of the disease.
BACKGROUND: Intentional self-harm is a common cause of hospital presentations in New Zealand and across the world, and self-poisoning is the most common method of self-harm. Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is frequently used in impulsive intentional overdoses,...

In this study, we reevaluated data sets from patients undergoing CT examinations because of suspected pulmonary embolism and compared doses and diagnostic results of the standard protocol to the additional modern CT subtraction technique. Two groups of single-blinded radiologists were provided with CT data sets from 50 patients. One group (G1) had access to full datasets including CT subtraction with perfusion map. The other group (G2) only evaluated conventional CT angiography. Results were compared to final clinical diagnosis. Dose length product (DLP) of CT angiography was compared to CT subtraction technique, which con...
As of April 21, 2020, more than 2.5 million cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, have been reported in 210 countries and territories, with the death toll at 171,810. Both chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have gained considerable media attention as possible therapies, resulting in a significant surge in demand. In overdose, both medications can cause severe, potentially life-threatening effects. Here, we present a brief overview of the pharmacology of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, manifestations of toxicity, and treatment considerations.
Conclusion: In patients with CS and PFO, the likelihood of prior stroke is associated with both, PFO-related and PFO-unrelated factors.
