Advances in Health and Disease. Volume 25 first offers nurses, emergency-care doctors, psychiatrists, and other personnel involved in the multidisciplinary assessment, management and treatment of intoxicated patients in the emergency department setting an overview of the literature on psychomotor agitation associated with alcohol or drug abuse.

Next, this compilation explores the commonly neglected aspects of oral health in school children, such as dental caries, pain, dental trauma, developmental anomalies and malocclusion.

The authors discuss hemolysis in blood samples, a problem that is commonly found in laboratories. This has a potential impact on the quality of blood tests, completion time or turn around time, and creates discomfort for patients due to repeated sampling.
The available research on the effect of yoga in managing the “ominous octet” of type 2 diabetes is summarized in an effort to ensure the evidence-based practice of therapeutic yoga in a clinical setting.

The effects of age and gender on cystatin C levels are investigated, challenging the glomerular filtration rate equations for healthy cases.

The closing study explores how deficiencies such as zinc, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as an immune deficiency syndromes, may cause a sprue-like enteropathy.
