    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 :)

      @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?)

      I'm sorry I've forgotten whatever i studied in the post finals bliss. I've brought shame to this channel as it's viewer.

                        Does this mean you could poison yourself by eating Haribo sugar free gummibears? According to multiple Amazon reviews those are highly laxative.

                                So first they do this ridiculous competition, which is stupid enough, and then when their friend is obviously having major medical problems they laugh at him and don't find him unconscious until an HOUR LATER? Dear god. I'm just glad the poor kid ended up okay.

                                                      Shit... I used to take a lot of laxatives when I was in middle school.
                                                      3x the adult dose of one, daily
                                                      3x the adult dose of another, daily.
                                                      2x the adult dose of another, weekly.

                                                      I always wondered why I had to do blood tests pretty frequently. I get it now. Yikes. My levels were always within normal tho, thankfully.

                                                      Edit: to be clear, I took them w/ the doctor’s blessing. One of them was prescribed.
