How to treat muscle spasm?

A man comes into a clinic complaining of muscle spasms that interfere with his breathing and movement. A blood test shows he has become contaminated with a pesticide that acts as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. How do you explain to this man what is happening to him?

Hello,

This is like poisoning and he needs immediate medical attention. It is best to take him to an ER for proper management. This can cause respiratory distress if not treated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon
