Pediatric Toxicology Update: Rational Management of Pediatric Exposures and Poisonings
May 2007
Toxic exposures present a unique set of issues to clinicians caring for children. Children commonly ingest household products and sometimes are exposed to medications that are taken by others living in the household. The clinician must be quick to recognize potentially dangerous exposures in order to intervene and prevent or mitigate adverse outcomes. Fortunately, the majority of pediatric ingestions involve unintentional exposure to small doses of nontoxic or minimally toxic substances. However, it is those few truly toxic exposures that demonstrate the invaluable role played by a skilled emergency physician. This review will primarily focus on pediatric poison exposures in children ages six years and under.
