Baylis v. Travelers' Insurance Co.
This motion was denied and the plaintiff asked that the case be submitted to the jury to determine the facts on the evidence. The court refused this, and plaintiff excepted, the court then ordered a verdict for plaintiff, subject to its opinion, whether the facts proved were sufficient to render defendant liable to plaintiff on the cause of action stated. Plaintiff moved for judgment on the verdict, and defendant moved for judgment on the pleadings, judgment was rendered for defendant upon an opinion of the court as to the effect of the evidence and as to the law on the facts as deduced from it by the court. Held that the plaintiff was thereby deprived of his right to a trial by jury, which he had not waived. Justice Matthews delivered the opinion of the Court, randall v. Baltimore & Ohio Railroad,109 U. S.478, and cases there cited. This is what was done in the present case and it may be that the conclusions of fact reached and stated by the court are correct, and, when properly ascertained, that they require such a judgment as was rendered. That is a question not before us, in this particular, the court thought error was well assigned. This constitutional right this Court has always guarded with jealousy,469, DeWolf v. Rabaud,1 Pet. 476, Castle v. Bullard,23 How,172, Hodges v. Easton,106 U. S.408. For error in this particular, the judgment was reversed and the cause remanded with directions to grant a new trial, travelers Casualty & Surety Co. of America v. Pacific Gas & Elec
It is a logarithmic graph starting not directly from ingestion, but from 4 hours post ingestion after absorption is considered likely to be complete. In hands of skilled clinicians this nomogram allows for management of acetaminophen overdose. Generally, a plasma concentration of 140-150 microgram/mL at 4 hours post ingestion. This nomogram is not used if the patient has altered mental status or if the history is not reliable. Rather, a second level should be drawn and plotted to see if the slope of the remains at or above the nomogram. A formal half life may also be determined, measure at time upon admission of the patient to the emergency room, and a blood value at time should be obtained and half-life calculated. If half-life is more than 4 hours, then treatment is necessary to prevent hepatotoxicity, the original line starting at 200 microgram/mL at 4 hours was published in 1975 by Rumack BH. and Matthew H. When the NAC study was begun in 1976, the FDA required a line that was 25% below the line now called the treatment line. The study line which is now referred to as the treatment line was created starting at 150 at 4 hours and is the line used in the United States to determine treatment of acetaminophen overdose
