Alcohol use in adolescence: 5 years admissions at a pediatric emergency department.

Int J Adolesc Med Health 2018 Apr 13;32(4). Epub 2018 Apr 13.

Pediatrics Department, Hospital de Braga, Braga, Portugal.

Objective To characterize the profile and pattern of alcohol consumption in adolescents, admitted with acute alcoholic intoxication (AAI) at a pediatric emergency department of North Portugal. Methods Retrospective descriptive study of adolescents aged between 10 and 17 years, admitted with AAI between 2012 and 2016. The following variables were evaluated: age, gender, drinking context, quantity and type of alcohol, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), previous episodes, associated injuries, transport to the emergency department, other drug consumption, blood alcohol level (BAL), blood glucose level, treatment and orientation. The χ2/Fisher's exact test and t-Student test were performed (p < 0.05). Results A total of 180 adolescents with AAI presented. The majority of adolescents were older than 15 years old (71%) and 3% were younger than 14 years old. The mean age was 15.9 years [standard deviation (SD) 1.1 years] and 65% were males. The most common type of alcohol consumed was distilled drinks (60%). Recurrent alcohol use was identified in 7% and binge drinking was reported in 37% of patients. The mean BAL was 1.58 g/L (SD 0.6 g/L) and there were other drug consumptions (mainly cannabinoids) observed in 11% of patients. After emergency department discharge, 17% were followed at hospital consultation. There was no significant difference between boys and girls or between BAL and injuries or other drugs consumption. Conclusion This study confirms a high rate of alcohol use among adolescents, in particular "heavy episodic drinking", revealing an easy access to alcohol at this age. The integration of alcohol use prevention programs in community and education systems should be encouraged and implemented in every adolescent consultation.

Victims of sexual offences: medicolegal examinations in emergency settings.

J Clin Forensic Med 2006 Aug-Nov;13(6-8):300-3. Epub 2006 Aug 23.

Delegação de Lisboa do Instituto Nacional de Medicina Legal, Faculdade de Medicina de Lisboa, Rua Manuel Bento de Sousa no. 3, 1150-219 Lisbon, Portugal.

The aim of the study was to present some data concerning the examinations of victims of sexual offences in emergency settings conducted by medicolegal examiners of the Lisbon Department of the National Institute of Legal Medicine (NILM) over a two-year period (2002-2003). The study was based on 352 alleged victims of sexual offences referred by investigating police authorities and physicians working at hospital emergency rooms. Examination records were reviewed and data collected according to the extended medicolegal protocol adopted by NILM, which includes sociodemographic variables, and medical and laboratory findings. The results show that examinations in emergency settings represented about 43% of the total examinations of victims of sexual offences, 44% of them being performed at hospital emergency rooms. Victims' ages ranged from a minimum of 93 days to a maximum of 86 years. The mean age was 17.5 years. Females represented about 92% with a large over-representation of those aged from 0 to 19 years (61% of the total). Victims were mainly girls of school age (36%) or under 6 years old (25%). Offenders were male, referred to mainly, as acquaintances/neighbours (32%), friends (24%) or cohabiting family members (20%), a large majority belonging to the victim's social or family circle (85%). Of the examinations requested as "urgent cases" only 61% were reported as having occurred within 72h prior to the examination. Traumatic lesions on the whole body were found in only 28% of the cases, while findings on the genitalia and/or the anus were present in 31%. Medical and laboratory findings were in accordance with some sort of sexual offence in 34% of the cases. Our findings show the great heterogeneity of the victims, with a high proportion of children as well as the interplay between examination requests in emergency settings and the need to define more accurate criteria and proceedings for legal authorities and physicians who are usually the first line of intervention before specialists in legal medicine.
