This prospective, randomized control trial will use passive, isocapnic hyperventilation, applied via the ClearMateTM device (Thornhill Medical, Inc) versus controls receiving standard of care supportive management for severe alcohol intoxication to assess for enhanced ethanol elimination kinetics.

A Machine Learning Approach for Inferring Alcohol Intoxication Levels From Gait Data

This study aims to develop a phone app to assess gait differences at different levels of alcohol intoxication.

Alcohol Myopia, Objectification, and Sexual Assault

The present project integrates previous research on factors associated with alcohol-involved sexual assault, with research on how intoxication alters attention and social perceptions in wa...

Self-estimates and Objective Blood Alcohol Concentration in Emergency Department

Many patients presenting in Emergency Department (ED) present alcohol acute intoxication. Some previous studies in general population found that young people under- or over-estimated of bl...

Using Imaging to Assess Effects of THC on Brain Activity

To assess effects of THC (n=150) and THC + alcohol (n =50) in MJ users on prefrontal brain activity with functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) during resting state and during memor...

Residual Effects of Intoxication on Student Performance

The primary goal of the study is to assess the residual effects of heavy drinking on academic performance. The investigators will also explore whether these effects differ by family histo...

Age at First Alcohol Use as a Possible Risk Factor for Adolescent Acute Alcohol Intoxication Hospital Admission in the Netherlands.

The primary objective of this study is to determine whether age at first alcohol use is a determinant for adolescent acute alcohol intoxication characteristics, such as age at first acute alcohol into...

S100B Serum Level is Independent of Moderate Alcohol Intoxication.

In Germany, among patients with minor head injury (MHI), the incidence of coexisting alcohol intoxication is indicated up to 50%. The neurological symptoms of patients with MHI may be caused or altere...

Estimated changes in hospital admissions for alcohol intoxication after partial bans on off-premises sales of alcoholic beverages in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland: An interrupted time-series analysis.

To estimate age-specific changes in hospital admissions for alcohol intoxication following two consecutive restrictions on off-premises alcohol sales introduced in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland.

Evaluation of traumatic brain injury patients with signs of alcohol intoxication.

to evaluate the influence of alcohol intoxication in the time to perform head computed tomography and tomographic findings in traumatic brain injury patients.

Five-Year Incidence of Hospital-Based Emergencies Related to Acute Recreational Intoxication in Minors.

Alcohol or other drug (AOD) intoxication in minors is a public health challenge. We characterized underage patients admitted to an emergency department (ED) with acute, recreational AOD intoxication.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition where seizures occur in association with ethanol abuse (ALCOHOLISM) without other identifiable causes. Seizures usually occur within the first 6-48 hours after the cessation of alcohol intake, but may occur during periods of alcohol intoxication. Single generalized tonic-clonic motor seizures are the most common subtype, however, STATUS EPILEPTICUS may occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1174)

Substances interfering with the metabolism of ethyl alcohol, causing unpleasant side effects thought to discourage the drinking of alcoholic beverages. Alcohol deterrents are used in the treatment of alcoholism.

Phospholipids which have an alcohol moiety in ethereal linkage with a saturated or unsaturated aliphatic alcohol. They are usually derivatives of phosphoglycerols or phosphatidates. The other two alcohol groups of the glycerol backbone are usually in ester linkage. These compounds are widely distributed in animal tissues.

A carbamate derivative used as an alcohol deterrent. It is a relatively nontoxic substance when administered alone, but markedly alters the intermediary metabolism of alcohol. When alcohol is ingested after administration of disulfiram, blood acetaldehyde concentrations are increased, followed by flushing, systemic vasodilation, respiratory difficulties, nausea, hypotension, and other symptoms (acetaldehyde syndrome). It acts by inhibiting aldehyde dehydrogenase.

Alcohol analog of NICOTINIC ACID which is a direct-acting peripheral vasodilator that causes flushing and may decrease blood pressure. It is used in vasospasm and threatened GANGRENE.
