Description

Use:

Arsenic commonly causes toxicity due to excess amounts in the drinking water in certain regions worldwide or due to industrial exposure. Toxicity can cause vomiting, dehydration, anemia, nervous dysfunction, elevated blood pressure and death.

  • Gastrointestinal: Severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, bloody or rice-water diarrhoea
  • Cardiovascular and respiratory: Hypotension, shock, ventricular arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema
  • Neurologic: Lightheadedness, headache, weakness, lethargy, delirium, encephalopathy, convulsions, coma, sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy
  • Hepatic and renal: Elevated liver enzymes, hematuria, oliguria, proteinuria, acute tubular necrosis, renal cortical necrosis
  • Hematologic: Anemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, disseminated intravascular coagulation
  • Other: Rhabdomyolysis, garlic odor on breath, delayed appearance of Mees lines.Patient must avoid all seafood for 72 hours prior to collection. Seafood consumption two to three days prior to specimen collection can markedly elevate levels of total arsenic in urine.

This dietary form of arsenic is nontoxic and is comprised primarily of arsenobetaine and arsenocholine. Inorganic arsenic is used for industrial exposure monitoring.

Recommended For:

Drinking water containing excess arsenic, industrial exposure, monitoring chelation therapy for toxicity.
