Abstract Background: This is the 28th Annual Report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers’ (AAPCC) National Poison Data System (NPDS). All US poison centers upload case data automatically with a median time interval of 19.0 [11.9, 40.6] (median [25%, 75%]) minutes, creating a near real-time national exposure and information database and surveillance system. Methodology: We analyzed the case data tabulating specific indices from NPDS. The methodology was similar to that of… 

Trends in types of calls managed by U.S. poison centers 2000–2015

The number of cases reported to poison centers has decreased since 2008 but there is evidence that the complexity of calls is increasing and looking only at poison center total call volume may not be an adequate method to gauge productivity.

Increasing frequency and fatality of poison control center reported exposures involving medication and multiple substances: data from reports of the American Association of Poison Control Centers 1984–2013

Fatalities involving multiple medications are now the most common type of fatal poisoning reported to the AAPCC and have higher fatality rates than single substance exposures.

Hospital outcomes and economic costs from poisoning cases in Illinois

Broadening the definition for poisoning may provide a more accurate representation of the direct and indirect effects of poisoning in the US, as this study shows.

Pediatric Hydrocarbon-Related Injuries in the United States: 2000–2009

Although cases have declined, most likely due to existing prevention efforts, hydrocarbons are still a large source of preventable exposure and injury in children.

Mushroom poisoning epidemiology in the United States

Misidentification of edible mushroom species appears to be the most common cause and may be preventable through education, although some groups of mushroom toxins or irritants, such as cyclopepides, ibotenic acid, and monomethylhydrazine have been deadly.

The association between U.S. Poison Center assistance and length of stay and hospital charges

It has been repeatedly shown that the majority of treatment costs are attributable to a small fraction of patients as seen in this study, and among inpatients there is a potential cumulative decrease in hospital charges per 10 patients.

Assessment of Human Exposures to Animal Vaccines Using Poison Control Records, 2000–2009

Unintentional exposure to animal vaccines appears to occur almost exclusively among untrained individuals who may benefit from more effective education about the risks and benefits of administering vaccines.

Comparing Syndromic Surveillance and Poison Center Data for Snake Bites in Missouri

Two different surveillance systems available in Missouri are used to explore snake bite frequency and geographic distribution and it is found that the total number of snake bite cases from Missouri ESSENCE ED visits is much greater than the number ofSnake bites cases called into the MoPC by ESSence participating hospitals.

Position statement: ipecac syrup. American Academy of Clinical Toxicology; European Association of Poisons Centres and Clinical Toxicologists.

There is no evidence from clinical studies that ipecac improves the outcome of poisoned patients and its routine administration in the emergency department should be abandoned and there are insufficient data to support or excludeipecac administration soon after poison ingestion.

Poison Treatment in the Home

ipecac should no longer be used routinely as a home treatment strategy, existing ipecac in the home should be disposed of safely, and it is premature to recommend the administration of activated charcoal in theHome.

Position paper: Ipecac syrup.

There is no evidence from clinical studies that ipecac improves the outcome of poisoned patients and its routine administration in the emergency department should be abandoned, and there are insufficient data to support or exclude Ipecac administration soon after poison ingestion.
