Predicting outcome using butyrylcholinesterase activity in organophosphorus pesticide self-poisoning.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The usefulness of a low butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) activity on admission for predicting severity in acute organophosphorus (OP) insecticide poisoning has long been debated. Previous studies have been confounded by the inclusion of multiple insecticides with differing inhibitory kinetics. AIM We aimed to assess the usefulness of admission… (More)
