[The prognostic value of albumin fluorescence test in the evaluation of outcome of acute intoxication with psychotropics].

[Article in Russian]


Two hundred and five patients with toxicogenic and somatogenic intoxication with psychotropics (PT) were examined for the purpose of evaluating the prognostic value of the albumin fluorescence test. An analysis of distributions of laboratory indices in the groups of survived (n = 176) and diseased (n = 29) patients demonstrated the following: the parameter "efficient albumin concentration" (EAC) measured by fluorescence is informative in respect to prognosticating an outcome of PT intoxication of both toxicogenic and somatogenic forms. EAC provides for isolating a subgroup of patients with the risk of unfavorable outcome that is 3-4-fold higher versus the mean value. The routine laboratory parameters, e.g. level of creatinine, serum urea, are rather of a less prognostic significance versus the EAC fluorescence parameter.
