The most serious complication is nephrotoxicity, which may result in irreversible renal failure. Key management strategies for a cisplatin overdose involve renal protection and enhancing drug elimination, and consideration of sodium thiosulfate and plasmapheresis. A suggested algorithmic approach for the initial management of a patient with a cisplatin over-dose is presented in figure 2. To our knowledge, patients inadvertently receiving less than 300 mg/ m2 of cisplatin reportedly often recover, whereas overdoses exceeding 400 mg/ m2 frequently result in death. To our knowledge, our case is the youngest one who received a high dose of cisplatin (500 mg/m2) in the absence of intravenous hydration, and nephrotoxicity result in renal failure, hearing loss, visual impairment, severe myelosuppression complicated by life-threatening sepsis were presented in this patient.

A pneumothorax can be caused by physical trauma to the chest wall or as a complication of a healthcare intervention which is referred to as traumatic pneumothorax. In a minority of cases the amount of air in the chest increases markedly when a one-way valve is formed by an area of damaged tissue, leading to a tension pneumothorax which leads to steadily worsening oxygen shortage and low blood pressure. Unless reversed by effective treatment, it can result in death. Diagnosis of a pneumothorax by physical examination alone can be difficult. Integrated diagnostic modalities can be used for the better detection such as chest X-ray,

Inconsistent ingestion has caused the contraceptive to simply not work. While it is definitely safe with a success rate of roughly 99%, it is not 100% safe and it does come with side effects. Hormonal activity is influenced by OCPs, and as such, side effects can vary from serious to minor, therefore labelling the side effects rather unpredictable. One of the more serious side effects is the increased risk of blood clots and strokes. There is also a vague study that may indicate that ingesting the OCP will increase risk of cancer, however, there is also a vague study that indicates that ingesting the OCP will decrease the risk of cancer, so these studies render both theories obsolete in terms of factual information.
