Aim: To assess importance of serum CPK and serum Magnesium level in patients of OP poisoning as marker OP intermediate syndrome.
Material method: This was cross sectional study in PBM hospital over 93 patients over a period of 1 year. Serum CPK and magnesium level were assessed on admission and day 5 and were compared in patients who developed and didn’t intermediate syndrome.
Result: Thus, CPK level on day 1 as well as day 5 but not magnesium can be used as a predictor for the intermediate syndrome.
