OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the curative effect of hemoperfusion therapy on central nervous system injury in patients with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid poisoning.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 60 patients with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid poisoning were enrolled in this study. They were admitted to the Emergency Department of Qinghai Provincial People’s Hospital from 2015 to 2018 and were randomly divided into two groups by random number table method. One group was control group (routine treatment group), and the other group was the treatment group (hemoperfusion therapy was added on the basis of routine treatment). Glasgow coma score (GCS), APACHE II score, and MMSE score were used to evaluate the effects before treatment and 7 days after treatment. The results were statistically analyzed.
RESULTS: After treatment, GCS in the treatment group was higher than that in the control group, while APACHE II score was lower than that in the control group, and MMSE score was significantly higher than that in the control group, with statistically significant difference (p<0.05). The effective rate in the control group was only 26.67%, and that in the treatment group was 86.67%, with statistically significant difference (c2=19.62, p<0.001).
CONCLUSIONS: Hemoperfusion therapy can promote the recovery of central nervous system in patients with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid poisoning, reduce the injury of other organs, and significantly reduce the mortality of patients.Free PDF Download
