INTRODUCTION Fire smoke inhalation is a well-recognized aetiological factor of airway injuries. The objective of this study was evaluation of Clara cell protein (CC16) and myeloperoxidase (MPO) concentrations in serum of patients after exposure to uncontrolled fire smoke. METHODS The study group consisted of 40 consecutive patients admitted to the(More)
The aim of this study was to compare indices of exposure in workers employed at different work posts in a copper smelter plant using neurophysiological tests and to evaluate the relationship between urinary arsenic species with the aid of sensitive respiratory and renal biomarkers. We have attempted to elucidate the impact of different arsenic speciation(More)
Carbamazepine (amizepine) is a widely used psychotropic agent. A much easier accessibility of this drug, observed during the recent years, may account for an increasing number of acute intoxications with carbamazepine. The aim of this study was to determine the elimination kinetics of carbamazepine and its metabolite carbamazepine 10,11-epoxide, and to(More)
The main objective of this study was an analysis of the cohort of patients hospitalized due to intoxication with this agent during the period 2000-2009 and investigate factors, which determined the course of poisoning. During the search process, 288 (1.07%) patients were identified within total number of 26801 patients hospitalized. Within analysed cohort(More)
INTRODUCTION Fire smoke inhalation a recognized etiologic factor of airway injuries. The objective of this study was evaluation of serum high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein concentration in subjects exposed to fire smoke (SEFS).

Acute poisonings with ethylene glycol pose real challenge in the clinical toxicology. The main objective of this study is an analysis of clinical features and identification of prognostic factors in poisoning with ethylene glycol of patients hospitalized in the Toxicology Unit in the years 2000-2009. The medical records of the patients were identified and(More)
The aim of this study was to show the diagnostic procedure used in the two cases with false-positive serum acetaminophen results in suspected acetaminophen poisoning. The determination of serum acetaminophen were carried out using a UV/VIS spectrophotometer (Specord 40 Analytik Jena), coupled with an analytic computer station WinASPECT. The employed method(More)
Metformin has been used for many years as oral anti-hyperglycaemic agent in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus either in Poland or in the world. Metformin is the most commonly prescribed agent, but acute poisonings of this agent are rare. A review of our experience indicates, that poisoning with this agent may lead to life-threatening or fatal(More)
We present case a male patient who attempted suicide by ingestion of 90 tablets of digoxin in total dose of 22.5 mg. A measured peak level of digoxin was 6,75 ng/ml. Temporary invasive cardiac pacing with single chamber ventricular pacer was performed for treatment of the life-threatening rhythm and conduction disturbances that revealed within few hours(More)
UNLABELLED Intoxication with novel recreational drugs poses significant challenge for medical staff due to diagnostic difficulties, complex clinical pattern, resulting from polyethiology of poisoning and potential risk of life threatening complications. OBJECTIVES Description of clinical pattern novel drug intoxication. METHODS retrospective review of(More)
