  • Organophosphate Poisoning

    Sux-like fasciculations give way to flaccid paralysis. Many weeks down the track, peripheral neuropathies may develop, with distal muscle weakness and pain.[] During insertion of a feeding tube, diffuse tongue fasciculations were noted ( Video 1 ).[] Late effects Between 1 and 4 days after exposure to OPs, acute respiratory failure can occur with flaccid paralysis.[]
