Title Research on the possibilities of differential diagnosis available to occupational hygienists in the presence of subnormal cholinesterase levels
Original title Untersuchungen über die differentialdiagnostischen Möglichkeiten bei subnormalen Cholinesterasewerten unter arbeitshygienischen Aspekten [in German]
Bibliographic information July 1973, Vol.19, No.7, p.505-508. 21 ref.
Abstract Account and discussion of a method which makes it possible to differentiate, with a minimum time lapse, between a lowering in cholinesterase levels following exposure to organic phosphoric acid esters and lowering due to other causes. This method of differential diagnosis is based on the reactivation of the cholinesterases by Obidoxime. The author stresses its usefulness for routine checks.
