Solid-phase microextraction for cannabinoids analysis in hair and its possible application to other drugs. (1/260)

This paper describes the application of solid-phase microextraction (SPME) to cannabis testing in hair. Fifty milligrams of hair was washed with petroleum ether, hydrolyzed with NaOH, neutralized, deuterated internal standard was added and directly submitted to SPME. The SPME was analyzed by GC-MS. The limit of detection was 0.1 ng/mg for cannabinol (CBN) and delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and 0.2 ng/mg for cannabidiol (CBD). THC was detected in a range spanning from 0.1 to 0.7 ng/mg. CBD concentrations ranged from 0.7 to 14.1 ng/mg, and CBN concentrations ranged from 0.4 to 0.7 ng/mg. The effectiveness of different decontamination procedures was also studied on passively contaminated hair. The proposed method is also suitable for the analysis of methadone in hair; cocaine and cocaethylene can be detected in hair with SPME extraction after enzymatic hydrolysis.  (+info)

Gastric decontamination--a view for the millennium. (2/260)

The management of acute poisoning remains an important part of accident and emergency (A&E) care. Three gastric decontamination procedures have been widely used: gastric lavage, ipecac, and activated charcoal. Their role has recently been reviewed and position statements developed by working groups of the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology and the European Association of Poisons Centres and Clinical Toxicologists. These have important implications for A&E, as they indicate that activated charcoal is now the agent of choice for most poisons, but than in most situations it is probably only effective if given within an hour of overdose. Ipecac is effectively obsolete and gastric lavage has a narrow range of indications, principally for potentially serious amounts of agents not adsorbed by charcoal. Protocols for care of overdose patients should be modified accordingly.  (+info)

In vivo skin decontamination of methylene bisphenyl isocyanate (MDI): soap and water ineffective compared to polypropylene glycol, polyglycol-based cleanser, and corn oil. (3/260)

In the home and workplace, decontamination of a chemical from skin is traditionally done with a soap-and-water wash, although some workplaces may have emergency showers. It has been assumed that these procedures are effective, yet workplace illness and even death occur from chemical contamination. Water, or soap and water, may not be the most effective means of skin decontamination, particularly for fat-soluble materials. This study was undertaken to help determine whether there are more effective means of removing methylene bisphenyl isocyanate (MDI), a potent contact sensitizer, from the skin. MDI is an industrial chemical for which skin decontamination, using traditional soap and water and nontraditional polypropylene glycol, a polyglycol-based cleanser (PG-C), and corn oil were all tried in vivo on the rhesus monkey, over 8 h. Water, alone and with soap (5% and 50% soap), were partially effective in the first h after exposure, removing 51-69% of the applied dose. However, decontamination fell to 40-52% at 4 h and 29-46% by 8 h. Thus, the majority of MDI was not removed by the traditional soap-and-water wash; skin tape stripping after washing confirmed that MDI was still on the skin. In contrast, polypropylene glycol, PG-C, and corn oil all removed 68-86% of the MDI in the first h, 74-79% at 4 h, and 72-86% at 8 h. Statistically, polypropylene glycol, PG-C, and corn oil were all better (p < 0.05) than soap and water at 4 and 8 h after dose application. These results indicate that a traditional soap-and-water wash and the emergency water shower are relatively ineffective at removing MDI from the skin. More effective decontamination procedures, as shown here, are available. These procedures are consistent with the partial miscibility of MDI in corn oil and polyglycols.  (+info)

Plasma jet takes off. (4/260)

Thanks to a series of joint research projects by Los Alamos National Laboratory, Beta Squared of Allen, Texas, and the University of California at Los Angeles, there is now a more environmentally sound method for cleaning semiconductor chips that may also be effective in cleaning up chemical, bacterial, and nuclear contaminants. The Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Jet uses a type of ionized gas called plasma to clean up contaminants by binding to them and lifting them away. In contrast to the corrosive acids and chemical solvents traditionally used to clean semiconductor chips, the jet oxidizes contaminants, producing only benign gaseous by-products such as oxygen and carbon dioxide. The new technology is also easy to transport, cleans thoroughly and quickly, and presents no hazards to its operators.  (+info)

Germicidal ultraviolet irradiation in air conditioning systems: effect on office worker health and wellbeing: a pilot study. (5/260)

OBJECTIVES: The indoor environment of modern office buildings represents a new ecosystem that has been created totally by humans. Bacteria and fungi may contaminate this indoor environment, including the ventilation systems themselves, which in turn may result in adverse health effects. The objectives of this study were to test whether installation and operation of germicidal ultraviolet (GUV) lights in central ventilation systems would be feasible, without adverse effects, undetected by building occupants, and effective in eliminating microbial contamination. METHODS: GUV lights were installed in the ventilation systems serving three floors of an office building, and were turned on and off during a total of four alternating 3 week blocks. Workers reported their environmental satisfaction, symptoms, as well as sickness absence, without knowledge of whether GUV lights were on or off. The indoor environment was measured in detail including airborne and surface bacteria and fungi. RESULTS: Airborne bacteria and fungi were not significantly different whether GUV lights were on or off, but were virtually eliminated from the surfaces of the ventilation system after 3 weeks of operation of GUV light. Of the other environmental variables measured, only total airborne particulates were significantly different under the two experimental conditions--higher with GUV lights on than off. Of 113 eligible workers, 104 (87%) participated; their environmental satisfaction ratings were not different whether GUV lights were on or off. Headache, difficulty concentrating, and eye irritation occurred less often with GUV lights on whereas skin rash or irritation was more common. Overall, the average number of work related symptoms reported was 1.1 with GUV lights off compared with 0.9 with GUV lights on. CONCLUSION: Installation and operation of GUV lights in central heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems of office buildings is feasible, cannot be detected by workers, and does not seem to result in any adverse effects.  (+info)

A national audit of the laboratory diagnosis of tuberculosis and other mycobacterial diseases within the United Kingdom. (6/260)

In order to audit United Kingdom laboratory diagnostic and reference services including novel molecular methods for tuberculosis, a questionnaire was sent to laboratories submitting specimens to the PHLS Mycobacterium Reference Unit (MRU) and regional centres and to the Scottish Mycobacteria Reference Laboratory (SMRL) in 1996-7. Nationally, 67.2% of laboratories responded. Most UK laboratories were fully or conditionally CPA accredited and take part in the NEQAS proficiency scheme. On average only 3.3% of primary samples submitted for mycobacterial diagnosis in 1995 produced a mycobacterial culture from approximately half as many patients (that is, a mean of 1488 specimens producing 49 isolates from 23 patients). Potentially over 380,000 specimens are processed for mycobacteria in the UK each year. The majority of laboratories use 4% NaOH +/- NALC for specimen decontamination. Culture on solid media was used by most laboratories and 62.9% also use liquid media. Most laboratories incubated cultures for eight weeks. Few laboratories use molecular diagnostic methods. Laboratories were most likely to use molecular methods for diagnosing tuberculous meningitis and for specimens from immunocompromised patients, although usage was strongly influenced by cost. Within England and Wales 43.9% (47/107) and 56% (61/109) of laboratories wanted a rapid service for rifampicin resistance detection in M tuberculosis from immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients, respectively. In regard to a tuberculous meningitis service, 80.5% (43/112) and 84.3% (102/121) of laboratories wanted this service for immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients, respectively. The quality of reference services was rated as "very good"/"good" by 85.6% of respondents nationally. Rapid molecular amplification diagnostic services were established at the PHLS MRU for rifampicin drug resistance detection nationally and for tuberculous meningitis at the MRU.  (+info)

The sources, fate, and toxicity of chemical warfare agent degradation products. (7/260)

We include in this review an assessment of the formation, environmental fate, and mammalian and ecotoxicity of CW agent degradation products relevant to environmental and occupational health. These parent CW agents include several vesicants: sulfur mustards [undistilled sulfur mustard (H), sulfur mustard (HD), and an HD/agent T mixture (HT)]; nitrogen mustards [ethylbis(2-chloroethyl)amine (HN1), methylbis(2-chloroethyl)amine (HN2), tris(2-chloroethyl)amine (HN3)], and Lewisite; four nerve agents (O-ethyl S-[2-(diisopropylamino)ethyl] methylphosphonothioate (VX), tabun (GA), sarin (GB), and soman (GD)); and the blood agent cyanogen chloride. The degradation processes considered here include hydrolysis, microbial degradation, oxidation, and photolysis. We also briefly address decontamination but not combustion processes. Because CW agents are generally not considered very persistent, certain degradation products of significant persistence, even those that are not particularly toxic, may indicate previous CW agent presence or that degradation has occurred. Of those products for which there are data on both environmental fate and toxicity, only a few are both environmentally persistent and highly toxic. Major degradation products estimated to be of significant persistence (weeks to years) include thiodiglycol for HD; Lewisite oxide for Lewisite; and ethyl methyl phosphonic acid, methyl phosphonic acid, and possibly S-(2-diisopropylaminoethyl) methylphosphonothioic acid (EA 2192) for VX. Methyl phosphonic acid is also the ultimate hydrolysis product of both GB and GD. The GB product, isopropyl methylphosphonic acid, and a closely related contaminant of GB, diisopropyl methylphosphonate, are also persistent. Of all of these compounds, only Lewisite oxide and EA 2192 possess high mammalian toxicity. Unlike other CW agents, sulfur mustard agents (e.g., HD) are somewhat persistent; therefore, sites or conditions involving potential HD contamination should include an evaluation of both the agent and thiodiglycol.  (+info)

Gastric decontamination performed 5 min after the ingestion of temazepam, verapamil and moclobemide: charcoal is superior to lavage. (8/260)

AIMS: The aim was to study the efficacy of gastric lavage and activated charcoal in preventing the absorption of temazepam, verapamil and moclobemide when gastric decontamination was performed immediately after ingestion of the drugs. METHODS: Nine healthy volunteers took part in a randomized cross-over study with three phases. The subjects were administered single oral doses of 10 mg temazepam, 80 mg verapamil and 150 mg moclobemide. Five minutes later, they were assigned to one of the following treatments: 200 ml water (control), 25 g activated charcoal as a suspension in 200 ml water or gastric lavage. Plasma concentrations and the cumulative excretion into urine of the three drugs were determined up to 24 h. RESULTS: The mean AUC(0,24 h) of temazepam, verapamil and moclobemide was reduced by 95.2% (P < 0.01), 92.8% (P < 0.01) and 99. 7% (P < 0.01), respectively, by activated charcoal compared with control. Gastric lavage did not reduce significantly the AUC(0,24 h) of these drugs. The 24 h cumulative excretion of temazepam, verapamil and moclobemide into urine was reduced significantly (P < 0.05) by charcoal but not by gastric lavage. Charcoal reduced the AUC(0,24 h), Cmax and urinary excretion of all three drugs significantly more than lavage. CONCLUSIONS: Activated charcoal is very effective and gastric lavage can be rather ineffective in preventing the absorption of temazepam, verapamil and moclobemide when the treatment is given very rapidly after ingestion of the drugs, before tablet disintegration has occurred.  (+info)

A study coordinated by the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country did not detect any increase in antimicrobial susceptibility after applying a selective digestive decontamination (SDD) protocol. The research, conducted in collaboration with the Microbiology Service and the intensive care unit at the University Hospital of Álava (Basque Country), where a selective digestive decontamination (SDD) protocol was implemented in 2002, did not find any increase in the acquisition rate of antibiotic resistance and found that the rate was no higher than that of Spanish intensive care units without the protocol.. The study was coordinated by researcher Alicia Rodríguez-Gascón of the UPV/EHUs Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Technology Laboratory, and set out to compare the rates of antimicrobial susceptibility at the intensive care unit (ICU) before and after the introduction of SDD and compare them with data on susceptibility of other Spanish ICUs without SDD. The research, titled Antibiotic ...

No hospital stands alone, which is why the Hospital Preparedness Program emphasizes building coalitions that involve the entire health care system, emergency management agencies, non-government organizations and others in the community in planning for and responding to disasters. In planning together, the health care coalition near Scottsbluff, in western Nebraska, decontamination procedures stood out as a gap. Some hospitals had a turnover of staff and new staff were unfamiliar with decontamination procedures; others had procedures that had never been tested. Some facilities had used decontamination on a small scale with farming accidents and had identified areas for improvement for their responses.. So the coalition sponsored its first training for disasters that involve hazardous materials like chemical or biological materials. More than 30 representatives from coalition hospitals and first responder organizations participated May 29 and 30 in the coalitions first Hospital First Receiver ...

Patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) are at risk for acquisition of healthcare associated infections. These infections are often anticipated by overgrowth of potentially pathogenic micro-organisms (PPMO). Several decontamination strategies aim to prevent overgrowth of these PPMO in the respiratory tract, gastro-intestinal tract or both. These include selective decontamination using antibiotics (SDD and SOD) and chlorhexidine mouthwash (CHX). This thesis aims to determine the effects of different decontamination strategies on patient outcomes and the occurrence of antibiotic resistant bacteria in European Intensive Care Units (ICU) with low and higher prevalence of antibiotic resistance. Several research questions have been answered for ICUs with low levels of antibiotic resistance, using data from high-quality registries (MARS-cohort, NICE-registry) and in an individual participant data meta-analysis (IPD-MA) of randomized studies. The main study underlying this thesis is a new cluster

Oropharyngeal colonisation with potential pathogens is central in the pathogenesis of VAP. Preventing VAP using oral decontamination with non-absorbable antibiotics is not widespread because of concerns about emergence of antibiotic resistance. Koeman et al used orally applied CHX or CHX plus COL as alternative agents and found both treatments to be effective in VAP prevention.. This placebo controlled trial was methodologically rigorous because it was adequately powered, randomised, blinded, and concealed; had explicit inclusion and exclusion criteria and outcomes; and had complete follow up for the primary end point. It also had standard protocols regarding head elevation to minimise confounders.. In this trial, besides the treatment, normal tooth brushing and saline cleansing of the oral cavity were administered to all patients.* Combining oral hygiene with CHX decontamination may have enhanced the removal of oral micro-organisms. Additionally, the concentration of CHX (2%) and the site ...

Many centers continue to report dramatic decreases in VAP rates after implementing ventilator bundles. Interpreting these reports is complicated, however, by the subjectivity and lack of specificity of VAP definitions. More objective data suggest VAP rates may not have meaningfully changed over the past decade. If so, this compels us to re-examine and revise the prevention bundles we have been using to prevent VAP. New analyses suggest that most hospitals ventilator bundles include a mix of helpful and potentially harmful elements. Spontaneous awakening trials, spontaneous breathing trials, head-of-bed elevation, and thromboprophylaxis appear beneficial. Oral chlorhexidine and stress ulcer prophylaxis may be harmful. Subglottic secretion drainage, probiotics, and novel endotracheal cuff designs do not clearly improve objective outcomes. Selective digestive decontamination by contrast appears to lower VAP and mortality rates. Effective implementation is as important as choosing the right bundle ...

This disclosure relates to electrolytic decontamination of radioactively contaminated objects such as equipment or parts. The objects to be decontaminated are divided into two types: First, wastes resulting from dismantlement of radioactively contaminated equipment and parts, and second, equipment, vessels, pipes and tools that are to be reused. The electrolyte used for decontamination of the first type may be an inorganic acid aqueous solution of relatively low concentration that is inexpensive and rapid in polishing. A suitable inorganic acid is sulfuric acid that does not generate harmful gases in the process of electrolysis. The concentration of the sulfuric acid should be high to achieve polishing efficiency. About 5 Vol. % is the most suitable for uniform polishing and disposal of waste electrolyte. An electrolyte of this concentration is effective in macroscopic polishing but not in microscopic polishing (mirror finish), however. Therefore, an electrolyte for decontamination of the second

Simplified Selective Digestive Tract Decontamination for the prevention of ICU infections in a setting of high-level antibiotic resistance. Scientific Background:. Aerobic gram-negative bacilli (AGNB), Gram-positive bacteria and fungi are responsible for hospital acquired infections. This problem is especially typical in intensive care units (ICUs) due to the complexity of disease and wide use of invasive procedures. The common use of empiric wide-range antibiotic therapy had lead to the development significant resistance of these pathogens and this group of bacteria was defined as Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDRO). Among these bacteria the most important and virulent are: Carbapenem Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), Extended Spectrum Beta Lactamases (ESBL), Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE) as well as Fluconazol resistant Candida.. The main reservoir of these organisms is the intestinal tract, which raises the possibility that their ...

We started all necessary preparations mid-2012, says Jan Zwaan, head of technical support at Mourik Global BV. Although we are familiar with the removal of mercury, we never handled a project this size before. In close consultation with the SABIC engineers we therefore decided to divide this huge project into 28 smaller projects and a mercury removal area was defined. In this area of approximately 40 x 40 meters and with special safety measures in place, hundreds of meters of pipes had to be installed. The area also had to host a compressor installation made of several large compressors, a number of integrated cooling circuits and a complete absorption unit with filters. Another crucial task during the preparation phase was to align the process drawings with the reality of the plant. 28 different circuits had to be cleaned in seven days. From a logistics point of view the challenge was the different locations and various altitudes of each of the circuits. In addition, every circuit had its own ...

While about 500 yen per square meter is paid to decontaminate forests in affected areas, the reward shoots up to around 5,100 yen per square meter if bamboo forests are involved as it is necessary to cut thick bamboo groves before starting decontamination work.. […]. According to the Fukushima Municipal Government, now-defunct Zerutech Tohoku, a third-tier subcontractor of a joint venture that undertook the decontamination work, fabricated photos to be attached to decontamination work reports as if bamboo trees were felled for the work. The reports were submitted to the city by way of the joint venture, based on which unduly higher amounts of compensation were paid to the organization.. […].

When it comes to owning a decontamination franchise, there are many options out there, many names you may hear, but which do you choose? What qualifies a franchise as the best? Should you base it on the number of franchises? Or rather the quality of service the franchise offers? Maybe its that the franchise owner is more hands on? Or maybe the fact that they are hands off is what sells you? Lets take a look at two of the biggest names in the decontamination industry, Serv Pro, and Spaulding Decon.. Serv Pro was founded in 1967, for almost 50 years they have been helping the entrepreneurs succeed, according to their website. Which off the bat tells us that their focus is on the franchise, not the customer. While Spaulding Decon was founded in 2005, it has been a leader in the decontamination business for over 10 years and its focus is on helping the franchise succeed in order to provide the best possible service or the customer.. Both Serv Pro and Spaulding Decon are decontamination ...
The purposes of selective decontamination of the digestive tract are to treat infections that may be incubating at the time a patient is admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), by intravenous administration of antibiotics during the first days of a stay in the ICU, and to prevent ICU-acquired infections, by topical application of antibiotics in the oropharynx and the gastrointestinal tract. Despite multiple trials in which a considerable reduction in the incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia was demonstrated, major objections against the routine use of selective decontamination of the digestive tract have included a lack of demonstrated reductions in mortality rates and in length of stay (in individual trials), a lack of cost-efficacy data, and the threat of selection of multidrug-resistant bacteria. Recently, 2 controlled, randomized studies reported significant reductions in mortality rates among patients in ICUs who underwent selective decontamination of the digestive tract in ...

Identification of unexpected taxa in 16S rRNA surveys of low-density microbiota, diluted mock communities and cultures demonstrated that a variable fraction of sequence reads originated from exogenous DNA. The sources of these contaminants are reagents used in DNA extraction, PCR, and next-generation sequencing library preparation, and human (skin, oral and respiratory) microbiota from the investigators. For in silico removal of reagent contaminants, a pipeline was used which combines the relative abundance of operational taxonomic units (OTUs) in V3-4 16S rRNA gene amplicon datasets with bacterial DNA quantification based on qPCR targeting of the V3 segment of the 16S rRNA gene. Serially diluted cultures of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus were used for 16S rDNA profiling, and DNA from each of these species was used as a qPCR standard. OTUs assigned to Escherichia or Staphylococcus were virtually unaffected by the decontamination procedure, whereas OTUs from Pseudomonas, which is a major

Our decontamination services are able to tackle pet odors that seem nearly impossible to combat!. At our Rug Care Center, your rug(s) will be placed individually in one of our 5×9 decontamination tanks which contain a cold-water solution including a natural enzyme that digests and breaks down urine residue as well as a counteractant that deodorizes and cleans the rug. A Rug Care Center technician gauges how long the rug stays in the tank by determining the type of rug and the type of dye theyre dealing with. This will tell us how tolerant your rug will be to color migration so we dont ruin the coloring of your rug(s). During the soaking process the technician will agitate the tank contents. After the rug soaks in the tank, it is then removed, rinsed, and cleaned. Our most successful outcomes have been with rugs we could rinse and clean through our MORTM Machine upon completion of decontamination. However, whether yours can be cleaned through the MORTM Machine or needs to be hand-cleaned, we ...

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the necessary devices and supplies (either custom or standard) designed to decontaminate the skin either by physical removal, chemical decontamination, or a combination of both. Items in these kits typically include a ready-to-use and properly sealed decontamination agent and a set of applicators (e.g., pads, mitts) that permit quick and easy preliminary self-decontamination. The kits may be supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Skin decontamination kits and trays are usually intended for decontamination below hazardous levels for the individual from chemical (either warfare or toxic industrial) agents and radiation contaminated materials, and less frequently from biological agents. All products used for skin decontamination should be safe for individual ...
It is interesting to note that one recent study of antimicrobial prophylaxis in the intensive care setting that did not use a systemic antimicrobial at the beginning of oral decontamination did not show statistically significant reductions in nosocomial infection [5]. We attempted to limit the provision of cefotaxime prophylaxis to approximately 72 hours, the time required in our experience to decontaminate the digestive tract of potential pathogenic microorganisms as assessed by surveillance cultures. In our study, 2 of 12 (17%) and 6 of 36 (17%) infections occurred in the first 72 hours in cefotaxime-treated and non-cefotaxime-treated patients, respectively ...

2014/06/16. The government will adjust decontamination operations near the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant by changing how it selects land to scrub.. The goal is to limit individual radiation exposure for residents to 1 millisievert. While decontamination work currently places priority on exposure estimates based on atmospheric radiation readings, that will soon be changed to factor in readings from residents portable dosimeters.. The change came after a meeting between the Environment Ministry and representatives of four cities in the prefecture. Many residents and experts demanded that greater emphasis be placed on dosimeter readings.. They said the readings on their individual dosimeters are often lower than 1 millisievert, even though the corresponding atmospheric radiation readings in their area were higher ...
