Article title

Simultaneous application of intravenous fat emulsion and charcoal hemoperfusion in quetiapine overdose case


Title variants

Languages of publication



The simultaneous application of intravenous fat emulsion and charcoal hemoperfusion in the case of severe quetiapine poisoning is described. The initial blood concentration of quetiapine was 5.9 µg/mL and rapid deterioration in the patient status was observed. When a lipid emulsion was infused a fast blood pressure recovery occurred which allows to perform extracorporeal clearance using charcoal hemoperfusion. At the end of the procedure the quetiapine concentration was decreased down to 1.5 µg//mL and fast recovery of the patient was observed.
