Dr Manisha Panchal | Dr Dipti Trivedi

Abstract: Aim To study the clinical profile and correlation between acetylcholinesterase level in the patients of organophosphorous poisoning in reference to outcome. METHOD 100 patients of organophosphorus poisioning were taken of age above 12 years, irrespective of sex. All patient underwent detailed clinical examination. lab investigation of serum cholinesterase level were done. their progress and ventilator support was considered as and when required. Observation it was observed that low serum cholinesterase level has highest requirement of ventilator support and mortality. More the time lag, higher is the risk of ventilator requirement and higher mortality. Lesser the pupil size higher is mortality. Conclusion Organophosphorous poisoning is one of the most common cause of mortality among young adults. early identification of signs and clinical examination along with lab investigation like serum cholinesterase level will help to prevent mortality. . Timely use of mechanical ventilator can also save life.
