Description:

Hart et al developed a series of curves to describe the probability of survival after acute paraquat intoxication based on the plasma level during the first 28 hours after ingestion. This can help triage patients according the likelihood of survival and to identify those patients who may require early aggressive management. The authors are the ICI Plant Protection Division (Surrey), ICI Central Medical Group (Cheshire), and National Poisons Information Service in England.
