Abstract :

Introduction: Acute organophosphate poisoning is one of the commonest poisoning in India. Due to high mortality there is requirement of certain parameters which can predict mortality and morbidity. Previously various case reports showed correlation between serum amylase level and various parameters in OPC poisoning. Aims and objectives: To study the clinical profile, severity & outcome in OPC poisoning patients and to correlate serum amylase level with various parameters. Methodology: This is cross sectional study carried out in JLN Medical College and hospital, Ajmer during year 2016–2017. Results: High serum amylase level is statically significantly correlated with pupil size (0.935), fasciculation (<0.0001), respiratory failure (<0.0001), WHO seriousness grading (0.001), duration of hospital stay (0.047), ventilator requirement (<0.0001) and mortality (<0.0001).
