Tip of The Week- Toxidromes with Lisa Booze from the Maryland Poison Center

It may be difficult for care providers to identify the substances that caused an individual to be rushed to the ER. In some cases, it may be helpful to look for empty pill bottles or containers that may probably be the substance involved. However, in situations where we cannot find such evidence, we should focus on the symptoms that the patient is exhibiting.

In considering toxicological cause, there are toxic syndromes that we can watch for. Toxic syndromes or toxidromes are groups of signs and symptoms that suggest certain types of drugs or chemicals as the cause. Looking at vital signs and symptoms involving the central nervous system, gastrointestinal system, eyes, skin and mucous membranes, and genitourinary system can provide clues to the toxicological origin of the patient’s illness.

The four toxidromes that health care providers should know about include anticholinergic, cholinergic, opioid and sympathomimetic or stimulant toxidrome.
