Methamphetamine-Induced Psychosis: A Clinician's GuideMethamphetamine-induced psychotic disorders occur frequently in methamphetamine users. While the majority of persons have their psychotic symptoms clear rapidly with abstinence alone, a significant subset go on to have persistent psychotic symptoms or convert to a primary psychotic disorder. A clinical case is used to illustrate means to differentiate methamphetamine-induced psychotic disorders from primary psychotic disorders, followed by a review...

Cytokine release syndrome: a primer for generalists,Summary Cytokine release syndrome (CRS) is an adverse drug reaction that is poorly understood but is likely to be increasingly common as more immunotherapeutics are being developed and licensed, principally in the treatment of cancer. Early recognition and aggressive treatment of this potentially rapidly fatal systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) is the key to a better outcome for this adverse drug reaction.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Definition, Causes, and PathophysiologyFirst successfully described in 1967, acute respiratory distress syndrome has since garnered much interest and debate. Extensive studies and clinical trials have been carried out in efforts to address the associated high mortality; however, it remains a significant burden on health care. Despite the heterogeneous etiologies that lead to the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome, this rapidly progressing form of...

Septal Swell Body Treatment by Transmucosal, Incisionless Radiofrequency ReductionThe septal swell body (SSB), variously referred to as the nasal septal turbinate or nasal septal swell body, is a mucosal substructure of the anterosuperior nasal septum. The SSB plays a putative role in nasal airway physiology, nasal airway obstruction (NAO) and related rhinologic conditions. Historically, little attention has been paid to surgical treatment of the SSB. The purpose of this report is to describe an...
