Question and answer
identify sources of information that provide procedures for treating those affected by poisonous substances
If you think someone has swallowed poison and they appear to be unconscious, try to wake them and encourage them to spit out any pills. [ Do not put your hand into their mouth and do not try to make them sick. [ If you are waiting for medical help to arrive, lie the person on their side with a cushion behind their back and their upper leg pulled slightly forward, so they do not fall on their
face or roll backwards. Wipe any vomit away from their mouth and keep their head pointing down to allow any vomit to escape without them breathing it in or swallowing it. Do not give them anything to eat or drink. Poisonous fumes If you think someone has inhaled poisonous fumes, assess the situation first and do not put yourself in danger. Call for help and, if it is safe to do so, remove the person from the contaminated area. Before entering the area, take two or three deep breaths and hold your breath until you come out. As soon as you are out of the affected area, call 999. ] ]
