  • BACKGROUND Organophosphorous (OP) poisoning is one of the most common poisonings seen in India. OP compounds act through inhibition of enzyme acetylcholinesterase and estimation of pseudocholinesterase (PCE) activity strengthens the diagnosis in clinically uncertain cases of OP poisoning. The role of pralidoxime (PAM) therapy in OP poisoning has been controversial. STUDY OBJECTIVES This study was aimed to determine the prognostic significance of estimation of PCE activity and also to assess… CONTINUE READING
