POISONS AND THEIR ANTIDOTES.
The first thing to do in a case of poisoning is to cause the ejection
of the poison by vomiting. To do this, place mustard mixed with salt
on the tongue and give large quantities of lukewarm water; or, tickle
the throat with a feather. These failing, instantly resort to active
emetics, like tartar emetic, sulphate of copper or sulphate of zinc.
After vomiting has taken place with these, aid it, if possible, by
copious draughts of warm water until the poison is entirely removed.
Of course, if vomiting cannot be induced the stomach pump must be
employed, especially if arsenic or narcotics have been taken. The
following table may be useful for emergencies:--
Acids, Alkalies: Soap and milk, chalk or soda.
Alkalies, Vegetable acids, vinegar, oil in
Alcohol, Common salt, moderately.
Arsenic, Send for the doctor and his stomach pump.
Antimony, Oak bark, strong green tea.
Baryta or lime, Epsom salts, oils, magnesia.
Bismuth, White of eggs, sweet milk.
Copper, White of eggs, strong coffee.
Gases, Cold douche, followed by friction.
Iodine, Starch, wheat flour in water.
Creosote, White of eggs, sweet milk.
Lead, Strong lemonade, Epsom salts.
Opium and other narcotics, Emetics, cold douche, and heat.
Phosphorus, Magnesia in copious draughts.
Zinc, White of eggs, sweet milk.
Mad-dog bite, Apply fire in some form to the wound,
thoroughly and immediately.
Bite of insect, Ammonia, applied freely.
Bite of serpent, Same as for mad dog, followed by whisky
