With the question "How to remove toxins from the body with acute organophosphorus poisoning? ”, the doctor would like to answer as follows:
Organophosphate poisoning is usually from pesticides used in agriculture, can be poisoned through many ways (digestive, respiratory, and also toxic through the skin). ), depending on the route of poisoning, the way to eliminate toxins is different, for example, through the skin, the contaminated clothing must be removed, the contact area must be washed with soap and plenty of clean water, through the respiratory tract, the infected person must be taken. If the victim gets out of the contaminated area right away, through the gastrointestinal tract, it can cause vomiting in the early stages, in medical facilities, a gastric lavage tube can be placed and multi-dose activated charcoal is taken.
All cases need to be treated at a medical facility specializing in antitoxicity to determine the degree of toxicity and treat antidotes (Atropin, Pralidoxim) according to the correct regimen.
