iEM - April 17, 2020 - By Adami F
"Bradycardia and Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS): two clinical pictures that are increasingly seen in the Emergency Department.
What is the take-home message?
The liberalization of the laws on the use of cannabinoids and a growing favorable public opinion about them will likely increase acute cannabinoid intoxication cases in the EDs. In conclusion, a better knowledge of these two clinical pictures among emergency clinicians could avoid costly and time-consuming tests, scans, and procedures in these patients."
