A review of national poison center data from 1990 through 2003 showed approximately 10,000 annual ingestion exposures to camphor-containing products. A guideline that determines the threshold dose for emergency department referral and need for pre-hospital decontamination could potentially avoid unnecessary emergency department visits, reduce health care(More)
A review of U.S. poison center data for 2004 showed over 40,000 exposures to salicylate-containing products. A guideline that determines the conditions for emergency department referral and pre-hospital care could potentially optimize patient outcome, avoid unnecessary emergency department visits, reduce health care costs, and reduce life disruption for(More)
The American College of Medical Toxicology established the Toxicology Investigators Consortium (ToxIC) Case Registry in 2010. The Registry contains all medical toxicology consultations performed at participating sites. The Registry has continued to grow since its inception, and as of December 31, 2015, contains 43,099 cases. This is the sixth annual report(More)
HL7 is the commonly accepted messaging standard for achieving interoperability among information systems. Until now, no analysis has been done on how poison control data can be matched in HL7 messages. The purpose of this study was to create a preliminary domain analysis model which can be used to identify the data required to message poison control data in(More)
Concentrated hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) intoxication is relatively rare in children. Serious irreversible neurotoxicity generally results. The case of an 11-year-old boy who inadvertently drank a concentrated (35%) H2O2 solution is described. He exhibited signs of an acute encephalopathy with cortical visual impairment. Extensive cerebrocortical diffusion(More)
As information systems become increasingly integrated with health care delivery, vast amounts of clinical data are stored. Knowledge discovery and data mining methods are potentially powerful for the induction of knowledge models from this data relevant to nursing outcomes. However, an important barrier to the widespread application of these methods for(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE We report botulism poisoning at a state prison after ingestion of homemade wine (pruno). METHODS This is an observational case series with data collected retrospectively by chart review. All suspected exposures were referred to a single hospital in October 2011. RESULTS Twelve prisoners consumed pruno, a homemade alcoholic beverage made(More)
