Reactions 1680, p138 - 2 Dec 2017 O S Fatal intoxication: 4 case reports In a study, 3 patients [ages and sexes not stated] and a female patient [age not stated] developed fatal drug intoxications following a fentanyl overdose. Out of four patients, two patients had abused fentanyl [not all routes stated; dosages and durations of treatments to reactions onsets not stated]. The patients died following fentanyl overdose which led to intoxication. The post-mortem toxicological analysis was performed for each patient. In one patient, several fentanyl tablets were found in the buccal cavity, while in another female patient the source of fentanyl intoxication was a diverted fentanyl solution for hospital use, which she used to stole from her hospital. The female patient was abusing fentanyl. One patient had inhaled the heated fentanyl patch by placing it in a glass container indicating abuse and in another patient fentanyl patches were found on the skin. Author comment: "Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the dynamic of fatal fentanyl intoxications in Southern Bavaria over the last ten years; to investigate the pattern of fentanyl use; to determine how many persons use fentanyl along with other potentially lethal substances; and to determine the post-mortem concentrations of fentanyl in decedents with mixed intoxications and intoxications with fentanyl only."
