22. A 24-year-old man is brought to the emergency department by police 1 hour after his ex-wife

found him stumbling around in the yard. His blood pressure is 100/70 mm Hg, pulse is 90/min, and

respirations are 16/min. The pupils are equal and reactive to light; the sclerae are injected. During

the examination, he laughs without obvious reason, makes religious statements, and asks if there is

anything to eat or drink. Mental status examination shows a broad range of affect; there is no

evidence of thought disorder except for mild paranoia. Which of the following is the most

appropriate next step in management?

A

) Observation in the emergency department

B

) Intramuscular administration of naloxone

C

) Intravenous administration of 50% dextrose

D
