Questions: 1. Are you testing children for suspected THC ingestion?
2. If yes, how? (POC THC specific immunoassay, POC urine drugs screen-immunoassays, Urine comprehensive screens- GCMS, blood test, other)
California recently legalized THC and as other places have seen an increase in pediatric intoxication we anticipate similar at our institution. We obviously care about it even less than we did before in adults and took it off of our drug screen. But to avoid unnecessary work up in an altered child we are trying to figure out the best approach.
Julia Magana and a few friends
