OBJECTIVE Suicide by organophosphate insecticide (OPI) poisoning is a major clinical concern (predominantly in developing countries), and 200000 deaths occur annually worldwide. Red cell distribution width (RDW) has been used to predict outcome in several clinical conditions. Here, we aimed to investigate the relationship between the RDW and 30-day(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was conducted to evaluate the appropriateness of the chest compression (CC) depth recommended in the current guidelines and simulated external CCs, and to characterize the optimal CC depth for an adult by body mass index (BMI). METHODS Adult patients who underwent chest computed tomography as a screening test for latent pulmonary(More)
Although the rapid and accurate diagnosis of both acute ischemic stroke and extremity ischemia is essential to the timely and appropriate treatment, it is not always easy to differentiate between true stroke and stroke mimics. Although in general, limb ischemia due to extremity embolism is not included in stroke mimics or misdiagnosis, limb arterial(More)

We compared the accidental poisoning of children younger than 3 years who had ingested pharmaceuticals or(More)
CONTEXT Intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) has been shown to ameliorate the toxicity of lipid-soluble agents in animal studies and clinical cases. OBJECTIVES To investigate the therapeutic effects of ILE in a rat model of toxicity from calcium channel blockers (CCBs), including diltiazem and nicardipine. METHODS Two sets of experiments of CCB poisoning(More)
Methylene blue is the first-choice treatment of methemoglobinemia, but it is not readily available in most Korean emergency departments because of an import suspension. An 84-year-old woman with dapsone-induced massive methemoglobinemia visited our emergency department for unclear mentality and cyanosis. Because methylene blue was not available, we(More)
OBJECTIVES The spiral computed tomography (CT) with the advantage of low radiation dose, shorter test time required, and its multidimensional reconstruction is accepted as an essential diagnostic method for evaluating the degree of injury in severe trauma patients and establishment of therapeutic plans. However, conventional sequential CT is preferred for(More)
INTRODUCTION A high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) has been used to treat patients with dyspnea. We identified changes in arterial blood gas (ABG) of patients visiting the emergency department (ED) with hypercapnic and nonhypercapnic respiratory failure after use of an HFNC. METHODS This study was a retrospective chart review of patients with respiratory(More)
