A Young Woman critically poisoned with Aluminium Phosphide, saved at Shalby Surat!
A deadly poisoned woman patient was presented at Shalby Hospital, Surat, after mistakenly consuming Aluminium Phosphide, a highly toxic pesticide (fumigant used for preserving grains). In a state of shock, the patient at the time of admission was having very low blood pressure and soon developed metabolic derangement, cardiac toxicity and blood poisoning. As a result, her heart kept on going in to cardiac arrest.
A team comprising Intensive Care Specialist, Gastroenterologist & Physician started managing the case and revived the patient. But, again the patient went into liver toxicity that was also managed well by the team!
The patient was discharged after 9 days of hospitalization without any complications of Aluminum Phosphide poisoning, under the eagle eyed supervision of Dr. Milan Modi, Intensive Care Specialist and team, at Shalby Hospital, Surat.
