The clinical experience in treatment of wasp sting in Mianyang city, Sichuan, China

Objective: This study aimed to explore the clinical experience in treatment of wasp sting in Mianyang city, Sichuan, China.

Method: 60 patients with wasp sting admitted by our hospital were selected from January 2016 to October 2016. The patients were randomly divided into control group and observation group, 30 patients in each. Patients in control group were treated with conventional therapy while those in observation group received comprehensive treatment including sting removal, local block with 1%-2% lidocaine and daxanmethasone, focal flushing with 5% sodium bicarboante and early preventive dialysis treatment. Hospitalization time, total effective rate and incidence of complications in two groups were compared.

Results: The hospitalization time of the observation group (9.23 ± 2.36 d) was obviously shorter than that of the control group (12.69 ± 3.02) (p=0.032). Total effective rate (was significantly higher (96.67% vs. 56.67 %, p=0.017) and the adverse reaction rate (3.33% vs. 26.67%, p=0.015) was significantly lower in observation group than in control group.

Conclusion: Patients with wasp sting should be timely treated with early antianaphylactic therapy to shorten hospitalization time.
