While the effectiveness of cannabinoids in pain and palliative medicine in adult patients has meanwhile been quite well researched, there is still little empirical knowledge and hardly any clinical studies in children. The following article tries to make an assessment on the basis of the available data and the many years of experience at the Saarland University Hospital and to give practical advice for the prescription of cannabis-containing preparations.

The long QT syndrome Suddenly lifeless in the water - mere coincidence or at least avoidable?

Long QT syndrome can cause life-threatening arrhythmias and is responsible for 10% of all cases of sudden infant death syndrome - but it is still an underdiagnosed disease. In addition to genetic factors, a number of secondary factors, e.g. certain drugs, can also be considered as causes. In this CME course, you will learn how long QT syndrome can be diagnosed and which approaches can be used to prevent the occurrence of a dangerous arrhythmia.
