Predicting and treating Intermediate syndrome following Organophosphorus (OP) insecticide poisoning

Pesticide self-poisoning is a major clinical and public health problem in Sri Lanka, as it is in many rural regions of Asia. Pesticide poisoning causes an estimated 250-350,000 deaths each year in Asia. The widespread introduction of pesticides into agricultural practice of Sri Lanka during the Green Revolution of the 1950s and 60s was soon followed by an exponential increase in the number of cases of poisoning and deaths. At the beginning when fast acting, highly toxic pesticides were locally used in agriculture, many deaths occurred before patients got to hospital. Even at present, if patients do survive to admission, medical management is difficult, sometimes impossible, in even the very best hospitals. South Asian Clinical Toxicology Research Collaboration in collaboration with multiple government institutions managed to impose bans on many highly toxic pesticides which contributed to a major reduction of deaths from self- poisoning with pesticides. Over the last two decades the case fatality has reduced from around 20% to 3% at present. Read More
