The OPP patients were then maintained with continuous infusion of atropine 1mg/h according to the features of adequate atropinization
such as dry mouth, dry flushed skin, dry tongue, rapid heart rate (120-140/min) and noticeable dilation of pupils.
carried less mortality (16%) when compared with under atropinization
(66%) and over atropinization
Speed of Initial Atropinization
in Significant Organophosphorous Pesticide Poisoning-A Systematic Comparison of Recommended Regimens.
The development of complications and prognosis in each group was compared within themselves and patients were divided as those with early Atropinization
and those atropinised late (within 5 hours V/s 12 hours) and presence of complications were statistically compared in each group.
and sedation with Xylazine Hydrochloride @ 1mg/kg b.wt intramuscularly, followed by anesthetization with Ketamine Hydrochloride @ 6mg/kg b.wt i/v.
It was found that although residual accommodation was greater at 90 minutes after instillation (1.00D) compared with three-day atropinization
(0.50D), the former still allows a more rapid and less toxic assessment of refraction than the usual three-day dose.
