Determination of Prognosis of Snake Bite Cases by Neutrophil - Lymphocyte Ratio and Platelet - Lymphocyte Ratio

Dr. Priyanka Ashok Bhalke | Dr. C. A. Kante [2] | Dr. Paraji Bacchewar

Abstract: Objectives: Snakebites can result in serious complications. Our country is a snakebite - endemic area. The parameters for the prognosis of snakebites are very valuable due to the inadequacy of acute inpatient services, therefore, we aimed to detect the importance of the neutrophil?lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet?lymphocyte ratio (PLR) as parameters in the prognosis for snakebites. Methods: In this study, patients who presented at the ER within 24 hours after a snakebite were retrospectively analyzed. The sex, age, exposure duration, body part affected, hospitalization period, complications, mortality rate, and blood parameters of ER patients were assessed. Conclusion: The hospitalization period, complication developments, and poor prognosis in snakebites may be predicted using the NLR is more useful than PLR values, which are easily available and inexpensive blood parameters.
