Tetramethyllead
TETRAMETHYLLEAD, also called TETRA METHYLLEAD and LEAD TETRAMETHYL, is a chemical compound used as an antiknock additive for gasoline . Its use is being phased out for environmental considerations. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
(NIOSH) in the United States has identified tetramethyllead as a potential workplace hazard. The recommended time-weighted average exposure limit to tetramethyllead is 0.075 milligrams per cubic meter during a 10-hour workday; the OSHA permissible exposure limit is the same value assuming an 8-hour workday. Exposure to tetramethyllead can affect the central nervous system , the kidneys , and the cardiovascular system . Tetramethyllead
Tetramethyllead
can be absorbed through inhalation , through eye contact, through skin absorption, and by ingesting the substance

Mania
MANIA is a state of abnormally elevated arousal, affect , and energy level, or "a state of heightened overall activation with enhanced affective expression together with lability of affect." Although mania is often conceived as a "mirror image" to depression , the heightened mood can be either euphoric or irritable; indeed, as the mania intensifies, irritability can be more pronounced and result in violence . The nosology of the various stages of a manic episode has changed over the decades. The word derives from the Greek μανία (mania), "madness, frenzy" and the verb μαίνομαι (mainomai), "to be mad, to rage, to be furious". The symptoms of mania are the following: heightened mood (either euphoric or irritable); flight of ideas and pressure of speech ; and increased energy, decreased need for sleep, and hyperactivity

Delirium
DELIRIUM, also known as ACUTE CONFUSIONAL STATE, is an organically caused decline from a previously baseline level of mental function. It often has a fluctuating course, attentional deficits, and disorganization of behavior. It typically involves other cognitive deficits, changes in arousal (hyperactive, hypoactive, or mixed), perceptual deficits, altered sleep-wake cycle, and psychotic features such as hallucinations and delusions. Delirium itself is not a disease, but rather a set of symptoms . It may result from an underlying disease, over-consumption of alcohol, from drugs administered during treatment of a disease, withdrawal from drugs or from any number of health factors. Delirium may be caused by a disease process outside the brain that nonetheless affects the brain, such as infection (urinary tract infection , pneumonia ) or drug effects, particularly anticholinergics or other CNS depressants (benzodiazepines and opioids )

Anorexia (symptom)
ANOREXIA is the decreased sensation of appetite . While the term in non-scientific publications is often used interchangeably with anorexia nervosa , many possible causes exist for a decreased appetite, some of which may be harmless, while others indicate a serious clinical condition or pose a significant risk. For example, ANOREXIA OF INFECTION is part of the acute phase response (APR) to infection. The APR can be triggered by lipopolysaccharides and peptidoglycans from bacterial cell walls, bacterial DNA, and double-stranded viral RNA, and viral glycoproteins , which can trigger production of a variety of proinflammatory cytokines . These can have an indirect effect on appetite by a number of means, including peripheral afferents from their sites of production in the body, by enhancing production of leptin from fat stores

Epileptic Seizure
An EPILEPTIC SEIZURE, also known as an EPILEPTIC FIT, SEIZURE or FIT, is a brief episode of signs or symptoms due to abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain . The outward effect can vary from uncontrolled jerking movement (tonic-clonic seizure) to as subtle as a momentary loss of awareness (absence seizure). Diseases of the brain characterized by an enduring predisposition to generate epileptic seizures are collectively called epilepsy . Seizures can also occur in people who do not have epilepsy for various reasons including brain trauma, drug use, elevated body temperature, low blood sugar and low levels of oxygen . Additionally, there are a number of conditions that look like epileptic seizures but are not. A first seizure generally does not require long term treatment with anti-seizure medications unless there is a specific problem on either electroencephalogram or brain imaging

Coma
COMA is a state of unconsciousness in which a person cannot be awakened; fails to respond normally to painful stimuli, light, or sound; lacks a normal wake-sleep cycle; and does not initiate voluntary actions. A person in a state of coma is described as being comatose. A distinction is made in the medical community between a real coma and a medically induced coma , the former is a result of circumstances beyond the control of the medical community, while the latter is a means by which medical professionals may allow a patient's injuries to heal in a controlled environment. A comatose person exhibits a complete absence of wakefulness and is unable to consciously feel, speak, hear, or move. For a patient to maintain consciousness, two important neurological components must function. The first is the cerebral cortex —the gray matter that forms the outer layer of the brain. The other is a structure located in the brainstem, called reticular activating system (RAS)

Ingestion
INGESTION is the consumption of a substance by an organism . In animals , it normally is accomplished by taking in the substance through the mouth into the gastrointestinal tract , such as through eating or drinking . In single-celled organisms , ingestion can take place through taking the substance through the cell membrane . Besides nutritional items, other substances which may be ingested include medication (where ingestion is termed oral administration ), recreational drugs , and substances considered inedible such as foreign bodies or excrement . Ingestion is a common route taken by pathogenic organisms and poisons entering the body. Ingestion can also refer to a mechanism picking up something and making it enter an internal hollow of that mechanism, e.g. "a grille was fitted to prevent the pump from ingesting driftwood "

Hypotension
HYPOTENSION is low blood pressure , especially in the arteries of the systemic circulation . Blood pressure
Blood pressure
is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out blood. A systolic blood pressure of less than 90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or diastolic of less than 60 mm Hg is generally considered to be hypotension. However, in practice, blood pressure is considered too low only if noticeable symptoms are present. Hypotension is the opposite of hypertension , which is high blood pressure. It is best understood as a physiological state, rather than a disease. Severely low blood pressure can deprive the brain and other vital organs of oxygen and nutrients, leading to a life-threatening condition called shock . For some people who exercise and are in top physical condition, low blood pressure is a sign of good health and fitness

Digital Object Identifier
In computing, a DIGITAL OBJECT IDENTIFIER or DOI is a persistent identifier or handle used to uniquely identify objects, standardized by the International Organization for Standardization
International Organization for Standardization
( ISO
ISO
). An implementation of the Handle System , DOIs are in wide use mainly to identify academic, professional, and government information, such as journal articles, research reports and data sets, and official publications though they also have been used to identify other types of information resources, such as commercial videos. A DOI aims to be "resolvable", usually to some form of access to the information object to which the DOI refers. This is achieved by binding the DOI to metadata about the object, such as a URL , indicating where the object can be found
