Abstract

The Swedish STRIDA project on new psychoactive substances (NPS) monitored the occurrence and health hazards of novel recreational drugs in Sweden through evaluation of analytically confirmed adverse events presenting in emergency departments and intensive care units. During a ~6-year period from 2010 to early 2016, about 2,600 cases of suspected NPS intoxications were included in the project. About 75% of patients were men and the total age range was 8-71 (median 24) years and 57% were 25 years or younger. A large number of NPS belonging to many different drug classes were identified in project samples of urine and blood (serum/plasma) submitted for free drug testing, including synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonists, stimulants, cathinones, hallucinogens, dissociative drugs, benzodiazepines, and opioids, and also in drug materials from the cases forwarded to the laboratory along with the biological samples. The STRIDA project has been shown to serve as an effective early warning system for NPS by collecting data on incidence, distribution, and adverse effects and has supported healthcare professionals in the knowledge and critical care of intoxications caused by a wide range of novel substances. The results of the STRIDA project have also illustrated how drug regulations can drive the NPS market.

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 12 September 2018.
All research outputs
#6,041,547
of 22,601,066 outputs
Outputs from Handbook of experimental pharmacology
#174
of 642 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#98,123
of 300,644 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Handbook of experimental pharmacology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,601,066 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 73rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 642 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% 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 300,644 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 67% 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
