Oct. 22, 2012 Physician reports that a (age) y/o F with a prior history of hypertension, asthma and seizure was in her usual state of health yesterday when she began to feel progressively ill over the course of several hours. She initially experienced nausea with some vomiting and suddenly becoming unresponsive and having seizure activity (unknown if status vs. multiple repeated seizures). EMS was immediately notified and was transported to hospital. She is currently unresponsive on a ventilator and other life support. Her prior medication history consists of Lisinopril Amlodipine and Certraline. CT scan of the brain shows an intra-ventricular hemorrhage. Further consult and imaging studies by neuro-surgery group is investigating if there were underlying brain structural issues that pre-dated this event that can be identified however there is apparently no family history of such events. She remains on life support Her prognosis has been listed as "poor". Her use of the the product is unclear (if any). It is known that she had been spraying this product around the house recently due to some sort of pest infestation though other details of product use or any exposure to it are not known.
