    Happy Medical Monday! (which isn’t every Monday)

    1. I’ve seen laxative overdose a few times in the ER. BG is a real person, who was 14 in December 2010. His behavior is not limited to people aged 14.. Anecdotally worse in ages just a little older. Goes without saying… don’t take more than recommended amount of laxative or any other over the counter drug.
    2. Timescale’s a bit unclear, as is case with most patient reports.
    3. 2:25 Calf muscle is a prominent area of muscle pain in this condition.
    4. 3:38 Potassium is scarce extracellularly compared to sodium. It’s the principal intracellular cation.
    5. 3:51 “why don’t you talk about calcium in muscle contraction?” Because the rabbit hole will go too far in and I got into a version of the video that became a clinical lecture. Original draft of this video was 35 minutes long, given the nature of what happens with kidneys and calcium.
    6. 4:30 More than just potassium is given. It’s the 3rd or 4th in sequence I believe.
    7. 4:45 this is a type of ventricular tachycardia (ventricle = chamber of the heart, tachy = fast, cardia = heart rate) called torsades de pointes. It’s lethal, usually arises from QT prolongation. For hypochondriacs out there, you probably don’t have it right now.
    8. 5:36 Another rabbit hole. Actually calcium is allowed in too, leads to more muscle contraction, and calcium deposits in tissue which appear in imaging. Hypocalcemia then leads to higher phosphate levels, increasing bone resorption, breaking bones, damaging kidneys, etc. This part of the video could go on for hours.
    9. 6:09 Think about 6 2L bottles of soda swelling up in your muscles. That’s a lot of water.
    10. 6:30 If you want to know more about this, there’s hormones at play here, but medicines can also constrict afferent and efferent arterioles.
    11. 8:12 The real BG did have myoglobinuria.
    12. 8:45 That’s a bottle of lactic acid. Same thing that makes your muscles sore after exercise. Since muscle is breaking down, it spills into blood, releasing H+ causing acidosis.
    13. 9:15 Sorry music is loud…
    14. 11:20 What would we give him for metabolic acidosis? Comment below :)

      I get redish-dark urine when I drink a lot of alcohol. Sometimes I shit blood too and the shit is black. Addiction is "fun".
      Sobering up right now. My legs are very swollen and hard as a rock. Getting shivers and shaking. Sobering up is a pain. At least I dont have the laxative issue this time however the night is young. 3 liters of red wine. Not my personal record. Thats around 6 liters. What is strange is that sometimes the urine is nearly water color. Its like the body cant decide what to do.

      @Anushka Bakshi compensation is entirely useful, as it offers respite from an otherwise eventful emergency.

      Keep electrolytes under control, keep hydrated and counter extreme swings of all of the above until things restabilize.
      A hallmark of senna glycoside abuse is electrolyte imbalance and dehydration.

      Treat the underlying disorder otherwise compensation (if possible) would be useless. So sodium bicarbonate maybe. (Is it a HAGMA?)

      @paloma the reptilian I'd say oddly, save that I know precisely why I have an aversion to any medication.
      Speaking as a primary, on site EMS practitioner, well, I'm both extremely conservative and adventurous, depending upon very specific conditions.
      Typically, the least intervention delivers the least side effects and problems, but in some patients, more intervention is required to simply get them evacuated to a definitive care facility.
      The worse, under that context, took 12 hours of intensive interventions, over a simple severe allergy event, which consumed the entirety of a Battalion medical supply. One bee sting resulted in depletion of the treatment for many conditions, for over 1200 men.
      And was the most exhausting day of my life.

      As for the remarked upon case, she'd have been equally served by not bothering to eat.
      I do that, on occasion. Not out of disorder, but out of lack of activity.
      Not busy at all, idle beyond couch potato? Not hungry level, go for base mineral nutrients, hydrate as needed, call it a day.
      I'm not underweight, not overweight, "just right" to end up the eldest male in my paternal line of the family to not be type II diabetic. By decades.

      While taking a beta blocker, calcium channel blocker and a thyroid blocker, due to severe hypertension and Grave's disease hyperthyroidism.
      Another pill? Doc, do make a very serious case for it. Did opioids for a significant issue, the histamine response sucks, badly! Got a better ploy?
      Annoyingly, no.*

      *Opioids and opiates tend to share a common effect, activating mast cells, resulting in a massive release of histamine.
      Inject a patient with morphine, get vomit on your boots, decrease in blood pressure and respiration.

                  Never mix in medications in the things you bake. Thats the fastest way you can easily overdose.

                    We did this exact thing with laxatives when we were younger, multiple times, sometimes as a challenge or as a prank to someone. Difference was that we were no fucking idiots, we did basic online research on what dose of medication would be dangerous so we kept it far below that amount, still worked as intended. Even this guys friends made it through with no big problems, but that idiot had to eat 15 more of these things despite already being in pain from eating 10, with nothing additional to win for inflicting this upon himself. Well at least he learned something for life.
