Conclusion: Thus thinner abuse relates with slowing of POF in the EEG of Se estudiaron 22 pacientes con antecedentes de intoxicación crónica por tíner y 22 . Overdose of the oral anticoagulant warfarin (Coumadin), or drug interactions with warfarin, can lead to toxicity. Similarly, toxicity can result from. Twenty-two patients attending with antecedent of thinner abuse only, and CONCLUSIÓN: La intoxicación crónica por tíner se relaciona a una.

Posturographic alterations in thinner abusers. POF slowing may indicate cerebral blood flow reduction due a correlation between dominant EEG frequency and cerebral oxygen uptake and blood flow reported A case study with a neuropathologic report, showed kntoxicacion slowing of EEG rhythms in one subject with thinner abuse 4on the other hand, one toluene-exposed worker had a normal EEG 8. Significant differences in POF among groups intoxixacion observed in P3 and P4 location showing lower values in thinner abusers, but not in O1 and O2 locations.

Deliberate long-term inhalation of thinner for abuse purposes is a recognized problem of public health in underdeveloped countries.

Lopes da Silva F. The disorganization reported herein may be the result of cortical-subcortical injury induced by thinner consumption at thalamic-cortical networks. Concurrent use of warfarin and antibiotics and the risk of bleeding in older adults. Frequencies of disorganization and asymmetry showed significantly higher proportions in thinner abusers. Hereby we report a patient hospitalized due to aspiration pneumonia who developed pleurisy and pneumothorax after drinking paint thinner.


Cranial MR findings in chronic toluene abuse by inhalation. We chose those who had a the most adequate nutritional status. Twenty-two patients attending with antecedent of thinner abuse only, and twenty two controls without alcohol, smoking, and drug abuse in the same age range and gender were studied. Abuso de sustancias inhaladas in Spanish. Control subjects were selected from neurologically normal subjects included intoxicacion por thinner a database at our Laboratory of the same gender and in the same age range.

Toxicidad de los solventes como riesgo ocupacional

The ten-twenty electrodes system of the international federation. Absence of differences on POF in occipital regions can be explained by density of functional connections of networks producing alpha rhythm between thalamic-cortical areas.

In this paper we decide to use the quantitative EEG to study whether cortical neurophysiologic abnormalities results from thinner abuse. Average of POF at four electrode locations intpxicacion show in Table 1. Poor adolescent males, mainly those with cultural problems, appear to be at greater risk of consumption of these substances 1. Brainstem auditory evoked potentials in addicts to inhalation of organic solvents in Spanish.

The second point to our knowledge is reported here for first time. Rev Invest Clin ; Syndromes of toluene sniffing in adults.


Moreover, other electrophysiologic responses may be altered by thinner consumption, such as electronystagmography 14,18, Se registro el EEG cuantitativo y se compararon: The ten-twenty electrodes system of the international federation. Thinner abusers and workers occupationally exposed to solvents can develop different damage patterns, this fact has not been studied to date intoxicadion also merits more attention in future works. For example Aydin et al.


Thinner abuse alters optokinetic nystagmus parameters. A study previously carried intoxicacion por thinner by our work team reported a similar finding in posturographic recordings in TA subjects In summary we found that intoxicacion por thinner abuse relates with slowing of EEG in TA patients associated to disorganization, and asymmetry depending on length of time of consumption.

In this paper we decide to use the quantitative EEG to study whether cortical neurophysiologic abnormalities results from thinner abuse.

Pattern-visual evoked potentials in thinner abusers. RESULTS The group of thinner abuser TA comprised 22 patients 17 males and 5 females with an age range from years, exposed to solvents between 2 and 21 years, the majority of subjects with irregular time consumption. POF was compared by one-tailed Student’s t test for independent groups. One minute and thirty sec were recorded during each condition free of muscular, eye, respiratory, and body movements, as recommended by International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology guidelines Arch Med Res ; Hydrocarbon aspiration HA can cause significant lung disease by inducing an inflammatory response, hemorrhagic exudative alveolitis, and loss of surfactant function.

In central nervous system, cerebellar degeneration, and cortical atrophy has been described and may lead to irreversible brain damage Disorganization was defined as presence of more than one POF in spectral analyses.
