2. Suicide Methods and Specific Types of Accidental Death and Fatal Poisoning Among Discharged Psychiatric Patients: A National Cohort Study. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Suicide Methods and Specific Types of Accidental Death and Fatal Poisoning Among Discharged Psychiatric Patients: A National Cohort Study. Persons discharged from inpatient psychiatric units are at greatly elevated risk of dying unnaturally. We conducted a comprehensive examination of specific causes of unnatural death post-discharge in a national register-based cohort.A cohort of 1,683,645 Danish residents born 1967-1996 was followed from their 15th birthday until death, emigration (...) , or December 31, 2011, whichever came first. Survival analysis techniques were used to estimate incidence rate ratios (IRRs) comparing risk for persons with and without psychiatric admission history in relation to (a) suicide method, (b) accidental death type, (c) fatal poisoning type, and (d) homicide.More than half (52.5%, n = 711) of all unnatural deaths post-discharge were fatal poisonings, compared with less than a fifth (17.0%, n = 1,012) among persons in the general population not admitted. Just 6.8

3. Epidemiological study on accidental poisonings in children from northeast romania. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Epidemiological study on accidental poisonings in children from northeast romania. Accidental poisonongs are an important cause of morbidity and even mortality, especially in young children.We performed a retrospective observational study on a group of children admitted at the Regional Center of Toxicology at the Children's Emergency Hospital "St. Mary" Iasi with accidental intoxication within a period of 3 years. Data were collected from patients' files and processed with a SPPS 18.0 database (...) caused by accidental poisoning was 0.62%, all deaths owing to nonmedication intoxication.Identifying the epidemiological and evolutionary aspects of accidental intoxications must be a major objective for the health system, given that this pathology can be at least partially avoided and its incidence and severity may be reduced using appropriate measures.

patient that receives pralidoxime should be sent to the ICU with continuous infusion at 500 mg/hr, or 1-2 gram boluses every 6 hours. Given the lack of data, it is difficult to accurately predict outcomes from these types of attacks. However, it is estimated that the general mortality from organophosphate poisoning is 10-40%. Given that nerve agent attacks are premeditated, while organophosphate poisoning may be accidental, it is reasonable to assume the mortality may be even higher than this. 1–3 (...)

The annual number of pediatric poisoning-related ED presentations and the number of accidental poisonings have significantly increased over the last 6 years. There was no significant change in the type of causative (...) , the annual number of total poisoning cases and of accidental poisoning cases in particular increased despite a lack of change in the types of causative agents related to pediatric poisoning. This phenomenon may reflect failed preventative measures. Thus, the implementation of tailored preventative measures based on epidemiological data should be accelerated.

Mortality was highest in patients younger than 7 years of age (P=.006). The cases were reported by the Islamic years 1427-1435, corresponding approximately to Gregorian years 2006 to 2017. Fifty-six cases (83%) were reported from Jeddah. Most cases were due to accidental exposure to phosphine gas during fumigation.Mortality due to AlP poisoning was highest in children and most commonly occurred during fumigation of households

Hikers poisoned: Veratrum steroidal alkaloid toxicity following ingestion of foraged Veratrum parviflorum Steroidal alkaloids are found in plants of the genus Veratrum. Their toxicity manifests as gastrointestinal symptoms followed by a Bezold-Jarisch reflex: hypopnea, hypotension, and bradycardia. Some Veratrum steroidal alkaloids are also teratogens interfering with the hedgehog-2 signaling pathway, which causes cyclopsia and holoprosencephaly. We present a case of accidental poisoning from

20. National unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning estimates using hospitalization and emergency department data. (Abstract)

National unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning estimates using hospitalization and emergency department data. Unintentional non-fire-related (UNFR) carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is a leading cause of poisoning in the US and a preventable cause of death. We generated national estimates of accidental CO poisoning and characterized the populations most at risk. UNFR CO poisoning cases were assessed using hospitalization and emergency department (ED) data from the Healthcare Costs (...) and Utilization Project National Inpatient Sample and Nationwide Emergency Department Sample databases. We used hospitalization data from 2003 to 2013 and ED data from 2007 to 2013. We calculated trends using a linear regression of UNFR CO poisonings over the study period and age-adjusted rates using direct standardization and U.S. Census Bureau estimates. During 2003-2013, approximately 14,365 persons (4.1 cases/million annually) with confirmed or probable UNFR CO poisoning were admitted to hospitals
