A Study of Drug Detection in a Postmortem Pediatric Population
TLDR
In this population of decedents, it is recommended that illicit drugs and ethanol are targeted for testing, especially when limited specimens are available for analysis. Expand

TLDR
In this sample, pediatric fatalities caused by nonprescription cough and cold medications were uncommon, involved overdose, and primarily affected children younger than 2 years. Expand
