Here's this week's sample CME board review question on acetaminophen overdose and other toxicology disorders.

A 32-year-old woman presents after an intentional acetaminophen overdose.

She is 24 weeks pregnant and has a history of asthma.

Her 4-hour acetaminophen level is 200 mcg/mL.

You decide to treat her with N-acetylcysteine (NAC). 


Which of the following statements is CORRECT about the intravenous versus oral administration of NAC in this patient?

Answer Options:

Intravenous administration has been associated with hypernatremia, which may lead to polyhydramnios in pregnant patients.

Oral administration is contraindicated in pregnancy.

Intravenous administration should be used with extreme caution in patients with asthma.

Oral administration results in higher absorption of NAC during first pass metabolism and therefore results in higher concentration in the fetus.
