Abstract

This chapter begins by considering why it is important to understand the clinical patterns of acute toxicity associated with new psychoactive substances (NPS), the challenges associated with gathering these data, the sources of information available and the limitations of each. It describes the data triangulation approach that can be used to combine individual, each inherently limited, data sources to help build the picture of the pattern of acute non-fatal toxicity associated with NPS. The chapter illustrates the data triangulation approach by the use of clinical examples and aims to consider mechanism of action data in conjunction with clinical features to provide an overarching understanding of the clinical presentation. Examples of the most important individual and groups of NPS were identified using multimodal literature searching based on the most relevant terms. The chapter provides descriptive accounts that are a complete reference source on the patterns of acute toxicity.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 June 2018.
All research outputs
#5,815,926
of 21,007,539 outputs
Outputs from Handbook of experimental pharmacology
#173
of 618 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#101,582
of 297,209 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Handbook of experimental pharmacology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,007,539 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 618 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 297,209 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
