Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures: A condition where seizures occur in association with ethanol abuse (ALCOHOLISM) without other identifiable causes. Seizures usually occur within the first 6-48 hours after the cessation of alcohol intake, but may occur during periods of alcohol intoxication. Single generalized tonic-clonic motor seizures are the most common subtype, however, STATUS EPILEPTICUS may occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1174)Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium: An acute organic mental disorder induced by cessation or reduction in chronic alcohol consumption. Clinical characteristics include CONFUSION; DELUSIONS; vivid HALLUCINATIONS; TREMOR; agitation; insomnia; and signs of autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., elevated blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, and diaphoresis). This condition may occasionally be fatal. It was formerly called delirium tremens. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1175)Substance Withdrawal Syndrome: Physiological and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal from the use of a drug after prolonged administration or habituation. The concept includes withdrawal from smoking or drinking, as well as withdrawal from an administered drug.Seizures: Clinical or subclinical disturbances of cortical function due to a sudden, abnormal, excessive, and disorganized discharge of brain cells. Clinical manifestations include abnormal motor, sensory and psychic phenomena. Recurrent seizures are usually referred to as EPILEPSY or "seizure disorder."Alcoholism: A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.

Differential change in neuroactive steroid sensitivity during ethanol withdrawal. (1/42)The progesterone metabolite 3alpha-hydroxy-5alpha-pregnan-20-one (3alpha,5alpha-P or allopregnanolone) is a potent positive modulator of gamma-aminobutyric acid(A) (GABA(A)) receptors. Although it is well documented that chronic ethanol (EtOH) administration produces cross-tolerance to the positive modulatory effect of benzodiazepines and GABA at GABA(A) receptors, recent findings suggest that sensitivity to 3alpha,5alpha-P is enhanced during EtOH withdrawal. In addition, EtOH-naive inbred strains of mice, which differ in EtOH withdrawal severity (DBA/2 >> C57BL/6), had marked differences in behavioral sensitivity to 3alpha,5alpha-P. Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine whether C57BL/6 (B6) and DBA/2 (D2) mice would be differentially sensitive to several of the pharmacological effects of 3alpha,5alpha-P during EtOH withdrawal. Male mice were exposed to EtOH vapor or air for 72 h. During withdrawal from EtOH, animals were injected with 3alpha,5alpha-P (0, 3.2, 10, or 17 mg/kg i.p.) and tested for activity and anxiolysis on the elevated plus maze, muscle relaxation, ataxia, and seizure protection following pentylenetetrazol. Sensitivity to the anticonvulsant effect of 3alpha,5alpha-P was enhanced during EtOH withdrawal in B6, but not D2 mice. In contrast, sensitivity to the muscle relaxant effects of 3alpha,5alpha-P was reduced in EtOH-withdrawing B6 and D2 mice, with a suggestion of decreased sensitivity to the anxiolytic effect of 3alpha,5alpha-P during EtOH withdrawal in B6. These results suggest that sensitization to the anticonvulsant effect of 3alpha,5alpha-P during EtOH withdrawal does not generalize across all genotypes nor does it generalize to all of the pharmacological effects of 3alpha,5alpha-P.

Animal models of alcohol withdrawal. (2/42)One diagnostic criterion of alcohol dependence is the appearance of a withdrawal syndrome when alcohol consumption ceases. Researchers have used various animal models, including isolated brain cells, slices of brain tissue, and intact animals, to study the mechanisms and manifestations of withdrawal. Results from these experimental studies have demonstrated that many consequences of withdrawal found in animals resemble those observed in humans. Such signs and symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include enhanced activity of the autonomic nervous system; body posture and motor abnormalities; hyperexcitability of the central nervous system, including sensory hyperreactivity; convulsions; anxiety; and psychological discomfort. Researchers also have used animal models to study the electrophysiological correlates of withdrawal, as well as neurobiological mechanisms underlying alcohol dependence and withdrawal. (+info)
Emergency airway management in a case of lingual haematoma. (3/42)A previously unreported cause of acute tongue swelling is presented and the airway issues discussed. Cases with different aetiology have been sporadically published however the consequent, and sometimes fatal, airway obstructions have been dealt with somewhat variably. The aetiogy of acute tongue swelling and modern emergency airway algorithms are discussed with reference to the literature. (+info)
Influence of clonazepam and carbamazepine on alcohol withdrawal syndrome, preference and development of tolerance to ethanol in rats. (4/42)The effects of clonazepam (0.3 and 1.0 mg/kg or 0.1 mg/kg, b.i.d., 5 days) and carbamazepine (50 and 100 mg/kg or 12.5 and 50 mg/kg b.i.d., 5 days) on alcohol withdrawal syndrome in rats were investigated. Moreover, the influence of clonazepam (0.3 mg/kg, single dose, or repeated doses for 8 days) and carbamazepine (50 mg/kg, single dose, or repeated doses for 8 days) on the development of tolerance to ethanol was also examined. To study the influence of clonazepam and carbamazepine on preference to ethanol, both drugs were administered for 5 days during the last week of the experiment, (clonazepam at 0.1 mg/kg, b.i.d., i.p. and carbamazepine at 12.5 mg/kg, b.i.d, i.p.). Clonazepam and carbamazepine administered at single doses as well as multiple doses diminished the symptoms of withdrawal syndrome. Clonazepam did not prevent the development of tolerance to sleep-inducing and hypothermal action of ethanol, while carbamazepine prevented the development of tolerance to hypnotic effect of ethanol. Carbamazepine clearly reduced preference to ethanol (significantly vs. the control group and vs. the baseline values). Clonazepam also diminished preference to alcohol, but only in comparison with baseline values. (+info)
No association between metabotropic glutamate receptors 7 and 8 (mGlur7 and mGlur8) gene polymorphisms and withdrawal seizures and delirium tremens in alcohol-dependent individuals. (5/42)- Up-regulation of the glutamatergic neurotransmission from chronic ethanol intoxication may cause a hyperexcitable state during alcohol withdrawal that may lead to seizures and delirium tremens. The aim of our study was to evaluate the association between a history of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizures and delirium tremens and a mGlurR7 (Tyr433Phe); and a mGlurR8 (C2756T) metabotropic glutamate receptor polymorphism in alcoholics compared to controls. A total of 182 patients meeting DSM-IV alcohol dependence criteria and 117 controls, both groups being of German descent, were investigated. mGluR7 and mGluR8 polymorphisms were determined using polymerase chain reaction of lymphocyte DNA. History of alcohol withdrawal-induced delirium tremens and seizures were obtained using the Semi-Structured Assessment of Genetics in Alcoholism (SSAGA). Data were cross-checked with inpatients' clinical files. No significant associations were obtained between both receptor polymorphisms and alcohol withdrawal-induced seizures and delirium tremens. The negative results in this study question the role of these polymorphisms in the pathogenesis of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizures and delirium tremens. (+info)
In silico discovery of gene-coding variants in murine quantitative trait loci using strain-specific genome sequence databases. (6/42)BACKGROUND: The identification of genes underlying complex traits has been aided by quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping approaches, which in turn have benefited from advances in mammalian genome research. Most recently, whole-genome draft sequences and assemblies have been generated for mouse strains that have been used for a large fraction of QTL mapping studies. Here we show how such strain-specific mouse genome sequence databases can be used as part of a high-throughput pipeline for the in silico discovery of gene-coding variations within murine QTLs. As a test of this approach we focused on two QTLs on mouse chromosomes 1 and 13 that are involved in physical dependence on alcohol. RESULTS: Interstrain alignment of sequences derived from the relevant mouse strain genome sequence databases for 199 QTL-localized genes spanning 210,020 base-pairs of coding sequence identified 21 genes with different coding sequences for the progenitor strains. Several of these genes, including four that exhibit strong phenotypic links to chronic alcohol withdrawal, are promising candidates to underlie these QTLs. CONCLUSIONS: This approach has wide general utility, and should be applicable to any of the several hundred mouse QTLs, encompassing over 60 different complex traits, that have been identified using strains for which relatively complete genome sequences are available.

Lack of association between hippocampal volume reduction and first-onset alcohol withdrawal seizure. A volumetric MRI study. (7/42)AIMS AND METHODS: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the hippocampus has been extensively studied in both neurological and psychiatric disorders. Furthermore, hippocampal volume reductions on MRI have been reported in patients with chronic alcoholism. The present volumetric MRI study was undertaken to determine whether an association exists between hippocampal volume reduction and first-onset alcohol withdrawal seizure. Until recently, no data as to whether hippocampal volume reductions in alcoholics might serve as a predictor of withdrawal seizures were available. RESULTS: We found the average hippocampal volumes measured by high resolution MRI to be significantly reduced in 52 alcoholics compared with 30 healthy controls. Besides a decrease of hippocampal volume in patients with chronic alcoholism, we could not find any significant correlation between the occurrence of seizures during alcohol withdrawal and the amount of hippocampal volume reduction in these patients. CONCLUSIONS: Thus, the alcoholism-related atrophy within the hippocampal formation in patients suffering from chronic alcoholism does not seem to be the source of convulsive activity in these patients. Neither does the amount of atrophy allow the occurrence of first-onset withdrawal seizures to be predicted. (+info)
Alcohol withdrawal treatment in intoxicated vs non-intoxicated patients: a controlled open-label study with tiapride/carbamazepine, clomethiazole and diazepam. (8/42)AIMS AND METHODS: Alcohol withdrawal treatment efficacy of tiapride/carbamazepine (A) vs clomethiazole (B) vs diazepam (C) in non-intoxicated patients and vs tiapride/carbamazepine in intoxicated patients (D; breath alcohol concentration > or = 1 g/l) was tested (n = 127) in a controlled randomized open-label study. RESULTS: Efficacy and safety were not different between groups (total group: delirium, 3.9%; seizure, 0.8%), except for a lack of efficacy in 18% of intoxicated tiapride/carbamazepine patients. A change of medication in this group was necessary only when primarily intoxicated patients had reached the non-intoxicated range. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with tiapride/carbamazepine in alcohol-intoxicated patients proved to be safe. (+info)

Dexmedetomidine (Precedex®) for Severe Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS) and Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium (AWD) - Full Text View...
Severe alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) and alcohol withdrawal delirium (AWD) are frequent principal indication/s for admission to intensive care units. Additionally, unanticipated alcohol withdrawal complicates other critical illnesses and peri-operative states. Alcohol intoxication and withdrawal syndrome are characterized by classic symptoms of adrenergic activation, psychiatric agitation including seizures, as well as metabolic and respiratory dysfunction. The majority of patients with severe AWS are effectively managed with combinations of benzodiazepine (BZD) sedatives (e.g. lorazepam) and butyrophenone antipsychotics (e.g. haloperidol) and require intensive care admission for 2-3 days. However, almost 25% of patients with SAWS have a prolonged critical care course, often complicated by respiratory failure and associated with excessive sedation and risk for complications such as ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). AWS is frequently difficult to manage with usual care including ...

Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome is the set of symptoms you experience when you reduce or stop drinking cold turkey after binge drinking or long term drinking. Any excessive use of alcohol can lead to tolerance, physical dependence, and alcohol abuse. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome occurs because, once alcohol is no longer in your system, your central nervous system goes into and over-active state. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome may include seizures and delirium tremens and may lead to nerve cell damage and death.. Kindling. Some people who have repeatedly gone through cold turkey withdrawal without tapering off become more and more likely to have bad withdrawals from even small amounts of alcohol. This phenomenon is referred to as "kindling." The way to avoid kindling is to taper off.. Holistic Drug Treatment. You may not want to go to a traditional drug treatment facility.

Nourished animals were able to tolerate higher ethanol dosages than nutrient-deprived rats (9.62 vs 7.60 g/kg/day). Nourished rats were less likely to have withdrawal seizures than were nutrient-deprived rats given an equivalent amount of ethanol, but nourished rats given 25-30% more ethanol than the nutrient-deprived rats did have withdrawal seizures. Nutrient-deprived rats had BECs (Blood Ethanol Contents) higher than those of nourished rats receiving equivalent amounts of ethanol but comparable to the BECs of nourished rats receiving 25-30% more ethanol. All these results were replicated in Experiment 2 in which ethanol dependent rats above starting body ...

Clonazepam - Wikipedia
Like all benzodiazepines, clonazepam is a GABA-positive allosteric modulator. One-third of individuals treated with benzodiazepines for longer than four weeks develop a dependence on the drug and experience a withdrawal syndrome upon dose reduction. High dosage and long-term use increase the risk and severity of dependence and withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal seizures and psychosis can occur in severe cases of withdrawal, and anxiety and insomnia can occur in less severe cases of withdrawal. A gradual reduction in dosage reduces the severity of the benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. Due to the risks of tolerance and withdrawal seizures, clonazepam is generally not recommended for the long-term management of epilepsies. Increasing the dose can overcome the effects of tolerance, but tolerance to the higher dose may occur and adverse effects may intensify. The mechanism of tolerance includes receptor desensitization, down regulation, receptor decoupling, and alterations in subunit ...
John Libbey Eurotext - Epileptic Disorders - Propofol withdrawal seizures: non-epileptic nature of seizures in a patient with...
Seizures or seizure-like phenomena which are mostly convulsive have been observed during the induction, maintenance and withdrawal phases of propofol administration. The nature and mechanism of this phenomenon are not well understood and several case reports on these phenomena have presented only indirect evidence. We report on a patient who was administered propofol in order to control status epilepticus with success. However, every attempt at propofol withdrawal was followed by convulsive seizure-like activity. Continuous EEG monitoring showed muscle artefacts without any ictal discharges. Based on this finding, the propofol treatment was withdrawn and the seizure-like activity eventually attenuated and resolved. We propose that seizure-like phenomena associated with propofol withdrawal may not be ictal in nature and should not lead to unnecessary resumption of propofol infusion without documentation of an epileptic origin by EEG.. ...

Benzodiazepines are safe and effective for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal, particularly for the prevention of withdrawal seizures, although their superiority to anticonvulsants has not been demonstrated convincingly. There is no clear benefit of one benzodiazepine over another or of symptom-triggered versus fixed-dose scheduling.
Alcohol withdrawal syndromes in the critically ill.OA Alcohol
There are sporadic reports of AWS patients being benzodiazepine resistant and requiring extremely high doses of these agents for a prolonged time to control their symptoms[29,30,31,32]. While these patients can be managed using benzodiazepine as monotherapy, it can only be done at supratherapeutic doses, which have a propensity to accumulate, and then require a significantly prolonged wean. This often precipitates unnecessary neurologic workup, including brain imaging and prolonged mechanical ventilation. Clinicians often turn to additional agents to avoid supratherapeutic benzodiazepines and the predictable sequelae.. Intravenous ethanol, while still used in some centres, is not currently favoured by many clinicians and offers no advantages over benzodiazepine. It is generally reserved for use in overdoses of methanol, isopropanol or ethylene glycol.. Barbiturates can be a reasonable agent in the setting of a severe AWS. Advantages include low cost and long half-life which can provide ...

OHCHR | Deadly violence and abuses continue to grip Libya with civilians bearing the brunt
GENEVA / TUNIS (16 NOVEMBER 2015) - Libya continues to be embroiled in political strife and deadly violence, with multiple armed conflicts affecting several regions, and contributing to a general breakdown of law and order, according to a new UN human rights report released Monday. All parties in Libya "appear to be committing violations of international humanitarian law including those that may amount to war crimes" as well as "gross violations or abuses of international human rights law." The report lays bare in particular the abuses faced by vulnerable civilians such as internally displaced people, human rights defenders, migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.. The report, published jointly by the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and the UN Human Rights Office, documents the indiscriminate shelling of civilian areas, the abduction of civilians, torture and executions, as well as deliberate destruction of property among other serious abuses and violations of international law in various ...
Delirium tremens. Causes, symptoms, treatment Delirium tremens
Delirium tremens - Wikipedia
Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol. When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days. Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating. People may also see or hear things other people do not. Occasionally, a very high body temperature or seizures may result in death. Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs from which to withdraw. Delirium tremens typically only occurs in people with a high intake of alcohol for more than a month. A similar syndrome may occur with benzodiazepine and barbiturate withdrawal. Withdrawal from stimulants such as cocaine does not have major medical complications. In a person with delirium tremens it is important to rule out other associated problems such as electrolyte abnormalities, pancreatitis, and alcoholic hepatitis. Prevention is by treating withdrawal symptoms. If delirium tremens occurs, aggressive treatment ...

Alcohol withdrawal syndrome - Wikipedia
Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a set of symptoms that can occur following a reduction in alcohol use after a period of excessive use. Symptoms typically include anxiety, shakiness, sweating, vomiting, fast heart rate, and a mild fever. More severe symptoms may include seizures, seeing or hearing things that others do not, and delirium tremens (DTs). Symptoms typically begin around six hours following the last drink, are worst at 24 to 72 hours, and improve by seven days. Alcohol withdrawal may occur in those who are alcohol dependent. This may occur following a planned or unplanned decrease in alcohol intake. The underlying mechanism involves a decreased responsiveness of GABA receptors in the brain. The withdrawal process is typically followed using the Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment of Alcohol Scale, revised (CIWA-Ar). The typical treatment of alcohol withdrawal is with benzodiazepines such as chlordiazepoxide or diazepam. Often the amounts given are based on a persons symptoms. ...
Delirium Tremens (DTs) Severe Alcohol Withdrawal | Healthhype.com
Delirium tremens (DTs) are a consequence of chronic alcoholism. With prolonged and excessive use of alcohol, the secretion and functioning of different neurotransmitters in the brain are affected. Neurotransmitters, commonly referred to as brain hormones, are chemical messengers that are released from one nerve cell (neuron) to stimulate or inhibit another nerve cell. These neurotransmitters are in play throughout the day and night. However, its secretion and duration of action needs to be controlled to prevent overactivity of underactivity of the nervous system. The complex interaction between the electrical impulses along the nerves, the neurotransmitters at the nerve endings and the receptors on the other nerves which it acts upon is an integral component of the complexity of the human nervous system.. ...
Alcohol withdrawal in movies or literature? | Dr Antonio Carota MD, Neurologist
It seldom occurs until the abuser has been drinking heavily for at least the past ten years. The syndrome follows within a few days (until a maximum of two weeks) after stopping drinking. The mortality rate for delirium tremens improved from the last century from 37% to 2-7% of patients with the disorder due to advances in intensive care medicine. The etiology of delirium tremens is due to functional changes in the GABA neurotransmitter and NMDA receptors, which lead to unbalanced effects of excitatory transmitters. One of the best descriptions of delirium tremens in literature was given by Charles Jackson in the novel The Lost Weekend (1944), and Mark Twain gave a superb description of the disease with the alcoholic and abusive father in Huckleberry Finn. Edgar Allan Poe probably died because of delirium tremens (even if there is some controversy on this issue), calling out the name Reynolds (perhaps the explorer Jeremiah N. Reynolds) and repeating for hours Lord help my poor soul ...
Delirium tremens - Wikipedia
The main symptoms of delirium tremens are nightmares, agitation, global confusion, disorientation, visual and auditory hallucinations, tactile hallucinations, fever, high blood pressure, heavy sweating, and other signs of autonomic hyperactivity (fast heart rate and high blood pressure). These symptoms may appear suddenly, but typically develop two to three days after the stopping of heavy drinking, being worst on the fourth or fifth day. Also, these "symptoms are characteristically worse at night". In general, DT is considered the most severe manifestation of alcohol withdrawal and occurs 3-10 days following the last drink. Other common symptoms include intense perceptual disturbance such as visions of insects, snakes, or rats. These may be hallucinations, or illusions related to the environment, e.g., patterns on the wallpaper or in the peripheral vision that the patient falsely perceives as a resemblance to the morphology of an insect, and are also associated with tactile ...

We visited this place in the day and it was empty. Very grey dreary interior at ground level with little atmosphere or character. Just covered in beer signs and very dark.

The barman was not particularly friendly when asked about the beers. The other floors are only accessible by stairs, no lift, so if you have mobility problems then it is quite a challenge, if not impossible.

Benzodiazepines learning module : MHRA
In the management of alcohol withdrawal, a benzodiazepine can reduce psychomotor agitation and, used at an early stage, it may prevent progression to more severe symptoms of withdrawal including convulsions and delirium tremens. For less severe symptoms, the benzodiazepine is given orally either as a fixed regimen of tapering doses or according to withdrawal symptoms as and when they arise (symptom-triggered therapy).. The long-acting benzodiazepines chlordiazepoxide and diazepam are licensed for the management of alcohol withdrawal symptoms; both allow smooth tapering down of the dose.. A benzodiazepine can also be used for managing severe symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and may be of value in managing seizures and the potentially life-threatening condition of delirium tremens (characterised by hallucinations, disorientation, agitation, tremor, severe tachycardia, hypertension, fever, drenching sweats, and fluid and electrolyte disturbances). These symptoms are treated in an in-patient setting ...

March 2013. Subjects. This model has been predominantly been studied using adult (65-75 days of age) male C57BL/6J mice obtained from Jackson Laboratories (Bar Harbor, ME). Although experimental parameters have been optimized using these mice, we have conducted studies with adult female C57BL/6J mice, as well as other inbred mouse strains including DBA/2J and C3H/Hecr, selectively bred HAP/LAP lines, and and BXD RI lines. Mice are acclimated to the facility for at least two weeks prior to experimental use. Mice are individually housed in standard polypropylene pans with wood-chip bedding and stainless steel wire lids. The mice are housed under a modified light/dark cycle (lights on at 0200 hr) to allow for behavioral testing to be conducted during the dark phase of the cycle. Rodent food (Wayne Lab-Blox) and water is available ad libitum at all times during the studies.. General Experimental Design and Strategy.

Department of Health | The psychostimulant withdrawal syndrome
Unfortunately, the number of individuals who are dependent on psychostimulants and are likely to experience a withdrawal syndrome following cessation or reduction in use is not yet able to be estimated, although the presence of a withdrawal syndrome is not necessary for a person to meet criteria for dependence (which includes psychological factors). Similarly, the roles that tolerance (neuroadaptation) and acute toxicity play in long-term withdrawal are also unclear (Davidson et al., 2001). Having said this, the incidence, severity, course and subjective experience of the withdrawal syndrome are likely to be influenced by: ...

Essential Things To Do If Your Family Member Is Experiencing Alcohol Withdrawal
1.) Push electrolytes as much as possible. When your family member starts to go through withdrawal they can start to get nauseous and vomit often throughout the process meaning that dehydration is a very real danger. You can help them by giving them water, but especially pushing drinks like Gatorade or waters with electrolytes added in as it will help them combat dehydration and can even help keep nausea and vomiting at bay.. 2.) Dont leave them alone. As their family member, it is your job to be there as a support system to offer them encouragement and help during the rough process. The more support and encouragement you are able to give them in person, the easier it is for your family member to get through the detoxification process.. If you have a loved one or family member who has been diagnosed with alcoholism and has decided to go through either inpatient rehabilitation or to get sober at home on their own will, the biggest thing that will help them be successful is your love, ...
