Answer

Consult an American Association of Poison Control Centers–certified regional poison control center in all cases to assist in management, because poisonings can be quite severe and dynamic, and treatment is often complicated and multimodal. For these reasons, when patients are critically ill, besides the initial discussion with the certified specialist in poison information, request to speak with the medical toxicologist on call.
