41 When looking at patients with OP pesticide poisoning there is a comparable pattern. 102 Based on observations of single patients in medically controlled scenarios, Zilker25 even suggests to start early with low doses of diazepam in anxious patients with mild signs of OP pesticide poisoning. g. 25 Inadequate responses of severely poisoned patients to benzodiazepines requires the use of barbiturates. g. e. v. v. v. 146 Accordingly, midazolam appears to be an alternative to diazepam in nerve agent poisoning.

All of the authors came to the conclusion that alkalinization by sodium bicarbonate has a beneficial effect in OP poisoning. g. atropine or atropine in combination with an oxime). 48 would increase the hydrolysis of an agent to such an extent that a substantial reduction of the body load could be achieved. 162,163 30 Chapter 1 On the other hand, severe OP poisoning may result in acidic conditions,160 which must be corrected by moderate alkalinization. In this respect, appropriate administration of sodium bicarbonate should have a therapeutic value without interfering with the OP compounds themselves.

In contrast, obidoxime and pralidoxime may be only marginally effective in GF poisoning and HI-6 would be better. 71 Under such conditions, in GF poisoning reactivation half times of 14 min for obidoxime and 85 min for pralidoxime at the maximal concentration can be estimated. Aside from the highly effective HI-6, at the most obidoxime could reactivate GF inhibited AChE under such conditions. Due to the expected short half time of G-agents under the conditions considered, one autoinjector filled with an effective oxime should be sufficient in most cases.
