BUGARIN GONZALEZ, R.; GALEGO FEAL, P.; FERNANDEZ VELO, J. L.  y  MARINO ROZADOS, A. S.. Aspects about poisoning treatment in Primary Health Care . Medifam [online]. 2002, vol.12, n.4, pp.21-39. ISSN 1131-5768.

The possibility that a poisoning has a good evolution is conditioned in many cases by the management that is carried out in the first minutes.  This management is basically of three types: cardio-respiratory stabilization, techniques intended to stop the absorption of the toxic and to eliminate the toxic already absorbed and, finally, the administration of antidotes.  The effectiveness of gastric decontamination techniques when more than one hour has elapsed from the oral poisoning has been questioned in the last years. As a consequence, gastric emptying and activated charcoal administration are only feasible in Primary Health Care for many intoxicated patients since it is only in this assistance level that they can be assisted within the gap of one hour.  On the other hand, it is also necessary to think about the arsenal of antidotes that should be prepared in Primary Health Care environments.

Palabras clave : Poisoning; Gastric emptying; Activated charcoal. Antidotes.
