Click here to find the latest Student Discussion Document for April’s Clinical Case Study from Steven M. Truscott, Neil E. Crittenden, Monica A. Shaw, Robert A. Middleberg, and Saeed A. Jortani.

Dr. Scott provided us with three exclusive questions that will not appear in the published version of the Case. We'd love to hear your answers to these questions in the comments section.

  1. From the clinical presentation, which class(es) of drugs might be suspected?
  2. Knowing the routine drug screen is negative, what follow up questions might be asked of the patient?
  3. In what ways could the laboratorian assist the emergency medical staff in such cases?
