Clinical Pearls in Medical Toxicology: Updates Ranging From Decontamination to Elimination Such as any field of medicine, it is imperative to stay current with the latest advances and treatment modalities in toxicology. With the absence of rigorous randomized controlled trials, many updated guidelines are created by expert consensus and/or case reports and clinical experience. Over the past 10 years, there have been several changes in the management of drug overdoses in light of new data available. Journal of Pharmacy Practice 2019 31291840 Procopio, Gabrielle L.
Evaluation and management of life-threatening headaches in the emergency department Headache is the fourth most common reason for emergency department encounters, accounting for 3% of all visits in the United States. Though troublesome, 90% are relatively benign primary headaches --migraine, tension, and cluster headaches. The other 10% are secondary headaches, caused by separate underlying processes, with vascular, infectious, or traumatic etiologies, and they are potentially life-threatening. This issue details the important pathophysiologic features of the most common types of life-threatening headaches, the key historical and physical examination information emergency clinicians must obtain, the red flags that cannot be missed, and the current evidence for best-practice testing, imaging, treatment, and disposition.
