If you suspect a poisoning, call 1-800-222-1222 right away.
A "poison" can be any substance that can give you an unexpected or unwanted reaction. There's no issue too big or small just call! The call is confidential and free.
Treatment for a poison emergency will depend on the situation. First aid steps will depend on the patient’s age, their size, and the type of potentially toxic substance.
Warning: Sometimes, it may be too dangerous to rescue someone from an area that is filled with potentially harmful/poisonous gas. The 911 operator will tell you what to do.
Poison in the Mouth:
Caution: Some out-of-date first-aid charts may contain incorrect treatment information. Do not give raw eggs, salt, vinegar or citrus fruit juices to induce vomiting or to neutralize the poison. These treatments are not only ineffective, but may be extremely dangerous.
