It has been a successful year for The Residents’ Journal. With so many outstanding pieces submitted, the task of selecting my “Editor’s choice” was not an easy one. In “‘Bath Salts’: Emergence of an Epidemic” (11), Loeffler introduces readers to bath salts, a dangerous group of structurally similar designer drugs that are undetectable in standard urine drug screens and until recently have been legally sold. Bath salts are synthetic cathinones, compounds that bind to norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin monoamine transporters. Loeffler describes two classes of bath salts: 1) mephedrone (4-methylmethcathinone), a whitish-yellow powder that produces a high that may consist of euphoria, intensified sensations, “feelings of closeness, sociability, and talkativeness,” and 2) MDPV, which produces a high that lasts nearly twice as long as that of mephedrone and also produces feelings of increased stimulation and euphoria. Mephedrone has been linked with a broad range of adverse effects, from psychosis to death. MDPV has been associated with severe panic attacks, psychosis (including paranoia), and violent behaviors. The treatment recommendations for bath salt intoxication are limited to primarily the use of benzodiazepines, intravenous fluids, and supportive measures. Loeffler’s comprehensive overview stands out for its timeliness, relevance, and broaching of an important subject that was novel to many of our readers. Loeffler equips trainees with the crucial information they need in order to stay abreast of this important matter.
