Answer

Acetaminophen and aspirin levels should be assessed in every suspected ingestion. Electrolyte levels must be assessed in patients with severe vomiting or diarrhea.

In addition to laboratory studies, imaging and electrocardiographic studies can be used in the assessment of patients with vitamin toxicity.
