The age, sex, cause of contact, compound involved, time elapsed between exposure and admission to the ED, duration of hospital stay, and cardiac manifestations at the time of presentation were recorded. Sixty-two patients with OP poisoning presented to our ED from January to December from which 54 patients were included in the study.
The mean age was Glasgo the cases, Twenty-six patients had a prolonged QTc interval. Mean PSS of koka and women was 1. GCS is a parameter that helps clinician to identify advanced grade OP poisoning patients in the initial assessment in the ED.

The continued stimulation of the acetyl- choline receptor glagsow for the clinical signs and Organophosphates OP are used as insecticides in symptoms of OP poisoning. According to the World Health Organization, 1 million serious accidental and 2 million suicidal 1 Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University Faculty of Medicine, poisonings with insecticides occur worldwide every Departments of Emergency Medicine, Canakkale, Turkey year, and of these, approximatelydie, mostly 2 Department of Emergency Medicine, Erciyes University Faculty in developing countries.

GCS and interval in predicting outcomes in OP poisoning. We PSS ekalas calculated for each patient using the also was to describe the clinical characteristics of criteria in Tables 1 and 2.
Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) Quiz
Pulse rate, blood pressure, adult OP poisoning cases admitted to our hospital. The QT interval was corrected Turkey.
The diagnosis of OP poisoning cians. This followed a standard protocol, which was was based on the following criteria: The manifestations of OP poisoning, including excessive protocol included rapid atropinization, with doubling salivation, miosis, and fasciculations, and improve- dose of atropine at 5—10 min intervals, starting at 1—3 ment of the signs and symptoms of OP poisoning after mg, given until muscarinic signs were abolished.
The administration of atropine. Exclusion criteria included decision to intubate and mechanically ventilate was carbamate poisoning or severe pre-existing chronic made by the medical team. All symptomatic patients health status and co-ingestion of other drugs. The results were Downloaded from het.
Cardiac manifestations of acute organophosphate Table 4. Chi-square test was used in All of the cases according PSS were assessed in the statistical analysis of gender distribution. There was no significant cor- tributed data, and the Kruskal-Wallis test for data not relation between the PSS score and gender difference normally distributed.

The of the patients ranged from 17 to 80 years. The mean PSS of these three cases was 4. There was no significant difference in the mean age between males Of the Discussion cases, 29 The average time lapse between aimed to evaluate whether clinical parameters that exposure to the time of administration at the ED can be obtained rapidly in cases presenting to the pre-hospitalization period was 4. OP compound that caused the intoxication could According to the demographic data that we be determined in 25 of the cases.
Our data were consistent with the results Cardiac manifestations and electrocardiographical achieved in the previous studies on OP poisoning. Twenty severity of the cases and manage the patients on the six PSS measures the severity of the illness after the acute cases.

Our results show consistency with and outcomes of the poisonings. PSS is not a prognos- those two studies. GCS is a neurological scale, which is No statistical correlation was found between commonly employed in Emergency Services for the pre-hospitalization period and PSS. Actually, as this assessment of the consciousness of patients.
Because, the delay in treatment enables poison poisoning on admission to Emergency Service and to increase its initial peak serum level, which leads to evaluated those along with GCSs and other clinical skqlas tissue damage. GCSs of these cases were significantly influence over the clinical outcome. This result suggests PSS early intervention is known to be one of the most and GCS as effective tools for determination of the important factors that could affect survival.
Moreover, because GCS important result of our study was the significantly high has less complex parameters, it is more easily used PSS scores in OP poisoning cases over 50 years of age.
