First Aid Tip: Treating a Poisoning

Almost anything can become a poison if misused – aspirin, baby vitamins, and even certain spices. For example, too much salt could be deadly for a young baby. Many poisonings are easily prevented by teaching your children about poisons, locking toxic materials in high cabinets, keeping products in their original containers, etc. Some household products come in bottles or jars that look like food items and could be confusing to small children as well as adults.

If you or a loved one swallows poison, call the National Poison Help Hotline at 1-800-222-1222 (if you’re in the United States) and they will immediately transfer you to a regional poison control center for help.

Try to give them as much information as possible, such as what the victim ingested, about how much, any information on the label, etc. Do not induce vomiting, but if the victim does vomit, save it, along with any bottles or containers to give to EMS (Paramedics). Do not give them anything to eat or drink and do not attempt any type of treatment without the express advice the of poison control center.

If the poisoned victim is unconscious or becomes unconscious, call 911 immediately.
