The North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology (NACCT) is organized by the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology (www.clintox.org). Each year, ACMT hosts several activities at NACCT for medical toxicologists and other interested registrants on a wide range of cutting-edge topics.

Monday, September 23, 2019

8:00 AM - 4:00 PM 
ACMT Pre-Meeting | Music City Mixology: The High Notes and Low Notes of Booze and Drugs
 
Perhaps nothing is as germane to toxicology as “mixing.” The ACMT Pre-Meeting Symposium is a concocted potable pairing of toxicity, addiction, and withdrawal with music and cocktails to engage all of your senses for a truly memorable experience. Some topics will be explored in detail and others will whet your appetite for the rest of the NACCT. Join us as we get to know some new friends - vaping, marijuana and nicotine cocktails, adverse effects of addiction treatments - and catch up with some older acquaintances - absinthe, cinchonism, methamphetamine, and toxic alcohols. Come for the toxicity; you'll want more and need to stay for the withdrawal! Are you in for "the Mix"?
 
Objectives
  • Describe neurophysiologic changes in addiction.
  • Understand the pros and cons of various pharmacotherapies in the management of addiction and withdrawal syndromes.
  • Discuss current trends in substance delivery including cocktail infusions and vaping. Use data from recent international outbreaks to discuss advances in care or modifications in management options of toxic alcohols.
  • Explain current methamphetamine-related cardiac issues.
