SURVEY ON AVAILABLITY OF ANTIDOTES IN SOUTH INDIAN PRIMARY CARE HOSPITALS

Author: KIRAN MARANAYAKANAHALLI, KIRAN NAGARAJU, NAGAPPAN KANNAPPAN, MANASA. S
Abstract: Objective: To determine the availability and adequacy of antidotes stocked at different south Indian primary care hospitals. Methodology: It was a prospective observational survey done in 25 different selected south Indian primary care hospitals (PCHs) using an antidote stocking survey form (ASSF). The ASSF was prepared with the help of WHO guidelines and International Programmed on Chemical Safety (IPCS) on availability of antidote. The ASSF was sent 25 different selected primary care hospitals through electronic mail, which had a list of antidotes which are very much essentially to treat different type poison cases. Results: Totally about 25 hospitals were sent with ASSF, out of which only 19 hospitals responded for the survey and 06 hospitals did not respond after sever repeated reminders. The obtained data from the survey was compared with World Health Organization (WHO) standard list of antidotes for various poisoning. 64% of the hospitals had stocked Class A antidotes, 24% of the hospitals had stocked Class B antidotes and only 12% of the hospitals had stocked Class C antidotes. Conclusion: Establishing poison information center, coordinating with local hospitals, building up a network to use antidotes, also, to establish the antidote bank, which will decrease the rate of mortality.
