GHB poisoning in outpatient clinics

Laboratory Analysis of Toxic Agents in Suspected GHB Poisoning, Clinical Course and Predictors of Hospitalization in GHB Poisoning, and Laboratory Analysis of Toxic Agents in Poisoning Induced by Others 

About the project

Patients with suspected GHB poisoning presenting to Oslo Accident and Emergency Outpatient Clinic (Oslo Legevakt) or a hospital in Oslo (Oslo University Hospital Ullevål, Diakonhjemmet, Lovisenberg) will be included. Oral fluid and blood tests will be analyzed for recreational drugs. Clinical course will be charted, as well as treatment in the ambulance, emergency outpatient clinic and hospital to find predictors for when hospitalization is required. In the second part of the study the investigators will analyze urine and blood samples from patients presenting to the Oslo Accident and Emergency Outpatient Clinic (Oslo Legevakt) with suspected substance poisoning induced by others, for toxic agents
