Objectives To evaluate the association between ultrasound assessment of gallbladder wall thickness (GBWT) among severe dengue patients and dengue patients with warning signs to their clinical outcomes. Methods A prospective, cross-sectional study involving adult dengue patients presented to our emergency department between March until September 20...
Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), is rare but can be life-threatening. Unwanted complications can be prevented by early recognition and discontinuation of the causative medications, followed by aggressive treatment. We highlight a case of a 35-year-old gentleman with underlying schizophrenia, presented with altered mental state and fever after...
Introduction: Methemoglobinemia has been linked to a wide array of substances, such as antibiotics, local anesthetics, and industrial chemicals. It is an altered state of haemoglobin whereby oxygen delivery to tissues is impaired. Diagnosis of methemoglobinemia is often difficult due to its non-specific symptoms coupled by absence of accurate histo...
Introduction: Methanol poisoning usually occurs in a cluster and initial diagnosis can be challenging. Mortality is high without immediate interventions. This paper describes a methanol poisoning outbreak and difficulties in managing a large number of patients with limited resources. Methodology: A retrospective analysis of a methanol poisoning...
Clinical features of dengue infection are rather non-specific and can be complicated by concurrent bacterial infection. Ability to perform risk stratification early in the patient’s course of illness may guide physicians to early bacterial cultures and empirical antibiotic. We aim to evaluate the usefulness of the Dengue Dual Infection Score (DDIS)...
Hemichorea-hemiballismus (HC-HB) is a movement disorder characterized by involuntary movements involving limbs on one side of the body. Many etiological factors were identified and these included stroke, infection, and neoplasm. However, acute hyperglycemia-induced HC-HB is less well known. We present two cases of non-ketotic hyperglycemia-induced...
This project is aim to create a niche for research on Sepsis and Infection disease especially in Emergency Department and Critical care. We are mainly targeting on host response (inflammation and biomarkers research & exploration), microbiological effect on human, antimicrobial response & stewardship, and update related to Sepsis & Infectious disease.
