Background. The association between severity-based incidence of poisoning and socioeconomic status (SES) was investigated. Methods. SES was classified based on the premium level of the National Health Insurance cohort, which are medical aid (MA) population not requiring a premium, five self-employed insured (SEI) population groups, and five employed insured (EI) population groups. The poisoning data sets were obtained from the National Injury Database (2001–2003) of Korea. Severity-based… 

Living conditions in the districts of Oslo and poisonings by substances of abuse treated at casualty clinic level.

The incidence of acute poisoning by substances of abuse was higher, the poorer the living conditions in the district, based on the City of Oslo's living conditions index.

Hospitalizations and deaths related to adverse drug events worldwide: Systematic review of studies with national coverage

A systematic review to evaluate hospitalizations and deaths related to adverse drug events worldwide, reported in studies with national coverage using large administrative databases in a national scenario and an overview of databases and methods implemented to detect adverse drugEvents.

Frequency of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Turkey in 2010

Compared to studies in other countries, according to the data, Turkey was faced with more frequent cases of CO poisoning, especially during the winter months.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Review

Toxicity-associated death is most commonly caused by CO poisoning, and the research into the mortality rates of this emergency reveals that it varies according to country and climate conditions; thus, the actual mortality rate is higher than registered.

Critères prédictifs de transfert en réanimation des patients présentant une intoxication médicamenteuse volontaire admis en service d'urgence (étude REATOX)

La classe de medicaments et le score de Glasgow sont des elements essentiels au pronostic des IMV admises aux urgences aux urGences.

Carbon monoxide poisoning: an ancient and frequent cause of accidental death.

The pathophysiology and epidemiology of carbon monoxide poisoning is described, both an ancient and current cause of inadvertent (accidental) death and more recently as a cause of suicide worldwide.

Intoxications médicamenteuses volontaires : analyse descriptive des filières de soins

DSP with carbamates, neuroleptics, tricyclic, cardiotropes, and antiepileptic were more frequent in severe DSP and the number of ingested pills was higher and GCS also seems to be a key factor in DSP patients'orientation.

The EMR-ISS appears to be a feasible tool for passive injury surveillance of large data sets, such as insurance data sets or community injury registries containing diagnosis codes, and shows better calibration and discrimination power for prediction of death than the ICISS in most injury groups.

Population-Based Case-Control Study of Risk Factors for Unintentional Mortality from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Taiwan

Certain demographic and geographic characteristics were significant predictors for CO poisoning in Taiwan, suggesting a need for preventive strategies targeting these high-risk populations.

Socioeconomic differences in childhood injury: a population based epidemiologic study in Ontario, Canada

The results suggest the need for targeted injury prevention efforts among children from economically disadvantaged populations, although the exact requirements of the optimal prevention approach remain elusive.

An epidemiological study of acute carbon monoxide poisoning in the West Midlands.

Although deaths from non-intentional CO poisoning are declining nationally, in the West Midlands they have remained stable and hospital admissions are increasing and further work is needed to establish the extent of the burden of chronic CO poisoning and the impact of catalytic converters on suicides.

Adult height and cause-specific mortality: a large prospective study of South Korean men.

There was little evidence of associations for coronary heart disease or overall cancer mortality, but stomach cancer showed a weak inverse association that was attenuated after adjustment and strong inverse associations with death from stroke, respiratory disease, and external causes were observed.

Socioeconomic status and cardiovascular disease among men: the Korean national health service prospective cohort study.

Inverse SES associations with cardiovascular diseases were not mediated by cardiovascular risk factors among men who were undergoing economic transition, and Socioeconomically patterned access to medical care may partly explain these socioeconomic gradients.

The comparison of the efficacy of scoring systems in organophosphate poisoning

In predicting the mortality rates in OPP, the three scoring systems, which are GCS, APACHE II and SAPS II, had similar impacts; however, GCS system has superiority over the other systems in being easy to perform, and not requiring complex physiologic parameters and laboratory methods.

Socioeconomic inequalities in injury: critical issues in design and analysis.

It is found that increasing SES has a strong inverse association with the risk of both homicide and fatal unintentional injuries, although the results for suicide were mixed and the relationship between SES and nonfatal injuries was less consistent than for fatal injuries.
