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… 
Epidemiology of overdose episodes from the period prior to hospitalization for drug poisoning until discharge in Japan: An exploratory descriptive study using a nationwide claims database
TLDR
The findings emphasize the need for overdose prevention programs that focus on psychiatric patients aged 19–49 years who are prescribed benzodiazepines or barbiturates and on non-psychiatric patients aged ≥75 years who is prescribed Benzodiazepine or digitalis.
Living conditions in the districts of Oslo and poisonings by substances of abuse treated at casualty clinic level.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
A systematic review to evaluate hospitalizations and deaths related to adverse drug events worldwide, reported in studies with national coverage, provides an overview of databases and methods implemented to detect adverseDrug events.
Intoxications médicamenteuses volontaires : analyse descriptive des filières de soins
TLDR
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.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Review
By definition, poisoning is the destruction or injury of cells by inhalation, ingestion, injection or absorption of a toxic substance. Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, tasteless, colorless,

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

TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.
The epidemiology of intentional non-fatal self-harm poisoning in the United States: 2001–2004
TLDR
Differences in incidence rates of non-fatal, self-harm poisonings evaluated in US emergency departments from 2001 to 2004 by race, sex, and gender were described to provide useful information to improve prevention and treatment strategies.
