Abstract

Four patients with severe hypnotic intoxication, twice after suicidal intake of barbital, once of barbital, methaqualone and carbromal, and once of carbromal, were treated with six activated charcoal haemoperfusions. Three patients showed rapid improvement in the level of consciousness followed by complete recovery. One female patient died in cerebral coma due to complete acute cerebromalacia following hypoxia. Serious complications due to the haemoperfusion did not occur. Correct use of activated charcoal haemoperfusion enriches the therapeutic spectrum of severe exogenous intoxications.
