For Poisoning Questions or Emergencies, Call the Poison Experts at 1-800-222-1222
Some callers might feel we are asking questions and wasting crucial time. But only a careful evaluation of all the facts will allow the Poison Center to determine if a case presents a serious risk.
Once the information is gathered, the Poison Center staff member will calculate the amount of the exposure compared to body weight. This informatoin we gather will help to determine the toxicity and to make treatment recommendations.
