Organophosphate Poisoning and Management, an Update.
MetadataShow full item record
Organophosphate poisoning is characterized for the most part, by acute incidents. Management is by way of first aid (in mild poisoning) and use of atropine with or without the oximes, (in moderate to severe poisoning). Of late, it has become apparent that subchronic and chronic organophosphate poisoning are a common manifestation. This review paper summarizes this triphasic nature of organophosphate poisoning. Possible future diagnostic and management techniques are also discussed.
