Aims and Objectives To study the cardiac profile of organophosphate
compound poisoning.
Method About 100 cases of organophosphate poisoning admitted over a
period of 1 year in SS Institute of Medical Sciences were studied. ECG was
carried out daily on all patients during their stay. Chest x ray and estimation
of serum electrolytes were done routinely on admission. Cardiac enzyme
estimation was done if ECG showed significant changes along with
echocardiography. As there was no method available for estimation of
organophosphate compound, blood pseudo cholinesterase levels were
Results: Males were predominant (86%) with 26-35 year age group being
more common. Majority of them did not have ECG (57%) changes, with 4%
had pulmonary oedema and 5% hypotension, 4% hypertension and out of 7
patients who underwent 2D Echo , 2 of them had Acute Myocardial Infarction
Cardiac changes on ECG were seen more commonly among patients having
very low pseudocholine esterase levels (60.9%). This association was found
to be statistically significant (p<0.05).
