POISON



POISON


Call the Poison Control Center

Don't refer to medications as candies

Place medications in a child-proof bottle

Keep meds out of children's reach

Check food or drug's expiration date

Don't place gasoline or kerosine in softdrink bottles (for Filipinos!)

Don't play with watusi (for Filipinos!)




CORROSIVE POISON

Don't induce vomitting, it will produce more damage to the airway.

ex. muriatic acid, bowl cleaners, liquid sosa




NON CORROSIVE

Induce vomitting except when patient has a decreased LOC

Induce vomitting by giving syrup of ipecac

Gastric Lavage

Give activated charcoal and laxative

Charcoal = decrease absorption of poison

Laxative = flush out poison




Aspirin - acid = kussmaul's respiration

Tylenol - liver damage, monitor liver enzymes

Rat poison - made of coumadin = bleeding

Paint chips - contains lead, assess children living in old houses (paint)

Plumbism - contains lead, assess old pipelines

Watusi - give 9 pcs of raw egg whites (as first aid treatment only)
