The patient from Toxicology Conundrum 055 with a massive valproate overdose arrives in the ICU, can you manage things from here?
A man presents with decreased level of consciousness following a probable ingestion of 96g of sodium valproate. Can you handle this toxicological emergency?
Resuscitation Overview As with any basic and advanced life support it is important to have a systematic approach to managing toxicological emergency presentations. Pioneers in the field developed RRSIDEAD as a mnemonic to remember the key steps in Tox patient assessment and management. R is for Resuscitation R – Resuscitation R – Risk Assessment S […]
